We were approached by our client to construct a ┬ásingle-storey lean-to extension to architectural drawings already produced. The purpose of the extension was to enlarge the existing living room to create an open living & dining area that drew light into the home & brought the garden into their indoor space. Limited access through a coach house with restricted height & a common parking area required careful planning & consideration for neighbouring homes at all times. A crucial aspect of the works was the substantial landscaping of the garden to create a much more usable outdoor area for all the family to enjoy…

Works Included:

  • Excavation of the existing garden & patio
  • Engineered foundations including piling & reinforced concrete slab to overcome poor ground conditions
  • Construction of a single-storey faced brick extension
  • Removal of wall rear of house & installation of structural steelwork to engineers design
  • Supply & installation of aluminium sliding patio doors
  • Electrical & heating works to client specification
  • Re-plastering of existing living room & dining room
  • Patio & landscaping of garden

All works were completed in June 2020 – completed on schedule but interrupted by the global Covid-19 pandemic that halted works for 6 weeks to maintain our clients & our teams safety…

“Ashley Baker and his team completed a 3-metre single storey extension on our property, and from the start of the process to the finish, I can honestly say it was a fantastic experience. His quote was competitive, he totally understood what we wanted and added ideas to achieve the best results whilst being cost effective. We knew after seeing all the builders and quotes, this was the team we wanted to work with. As with all builds it had its challenges (having to stop building due to COVID just being one!), but at every stage and potential issue, Ashley was pro-active, found solutions and gave expert advice and reassurance. As soon as they were able to start again, progress was swift, his team were hard working, polite, professional and always tidied up at the end of the day. The standard of work was excellent, and we love the results, the extension and patio area has made a world of difference to the quality of life within our little home. If you are searching for a builder, look no further, you have found a great (honest and trustworthy) guy and builder, I would 100% recommend”
