A new single storey extension undoubtedly has many benefits for the property owner; and it’s now easier than ever to gain approval with the government recently loosening the rules and introducing wider permitted development guidelines. Typical a single storey extension can now avoid the planning process entirely dependent on the size and design of the proposals. A typical application route for this type of project is shown to the right of this page.
A Single Storey Extension is an extremely popular project type for existing dwellings that lack a good standard of living space on the Ground Floor. Properties built over 15 years ago didn’t have the same space standards that they do nowadays, meaning the quantity of people staying in a property outweighs the functional living space downstairs. A Single Storey extension in most scenarios will rectify this issue and is certainly one of our more frequent projects.
A Single Storey can add real value to your home if properly designed. Benefits include open-plan living, increased natural daylight, functional living space and increased value of your property. Popular design features of a Single Storey Extension include bi-folding doors, velux windows (sky lights), sloped ceilings, integrated kitchen/dining with breakfast bar and enhanced landscaping.
