Single storey side extension

The client wanted to create a dining room and utility on the side of their house. However, they were concerned about losing daylight to their existing kitchen.

We created a lean to extension accommodating dining area and behind this a new utility with it's own external door in the side. By incorporating rooflights into the under drawn roof, we ensured that daylight would penetrate back into the existing kitchen. The rooflights are electrically operated to ensure easy control of ventilation.

The end of the extension is furnished with folding/sliding doors which open onto the garden. This is sheltered by extending the roof over the patio area, supported by an oak truss and post.
