Extension in Exeter

Firstly a 40+ sq/m ground floor extension in Exeter , built within ‘permitted development’ with no need for planning permission . Browse the pictures and see the transformation from before works started to the finished article .

Typical cavity brick and block walls  and lean-too hipped roof with plain tiles .

Includes 3 square metres of porch at the front , a double bedroom with en-suite ( shower / utility room ) built along the side of the house and large open plan kitchen diner at the rear.

The existing kitchen was removed along with a section of the rear wall to give access to the rear area of the extension . The original front and rear door positions where also changed . We also re-routed the sewer to avoid having a manhole inside .

Features : Velux roof windows , large panoramic window at rear , french doors , Indian limestone flooring , American black walnut worktop ,  oak shelves / skirtings / sills , lit recessed cupboards , external decking area with built in planter / bbq .

Previous works at this address  included a total renovation and renew throughout  including structural alterations and opening up of the lounge and ground floor , re-plastering and decoration  , new bathroom and central heating system .

Out front a small patio and stone retaining wall tidied up the area between the garden and house . There will be a few photos added to the gallery showing parts of these works soon .



Renovations , Whitestone

This 1930’s building was originally two houses and had been previously altered to form one large 4 bedroom house .

We made many more changes to the layout , including structural alterations and vastly improved all aspects of the building .

Works here were from top to bottom with just about everything imaginable upgraded and replaced  .

The work photo gallery includes a section of under pinning , structural alterations , heated floors , plastering , the chimney and  re-roof and a stained glass window .
