Adding a two storey extension to a detached house to create more space and a look that was more sympathetic to other houses in the local area

The design

A two-storey extension to a detached house.

The budget

£100,000, including a single-storey rear extension, loft conversion and complete house upgrade.

The brief

To create more space and a look that was more sympathetic to other houses in the local area.

Ben Parsons of Ben Parsons Design (benparsonsdesign.co.uk) explains how the brief was achieved

‘As part of a larger house project, the extension was designed to transform this 1950s property. The existing extensions were demolished and the salvaged brickwork and roof tiles stitched into the building. The new roof design allowed for the creation of a double bedroom with en suite in the converted loft. To update the exterior while respecting the original character of the house, an oak-framed, clad design replaced the existing porch.’
