This simple 1980s bungalow had wonderful views to the rear, but little way of seeing it from the house. We designed and built a garden-room extension to the ground floor with estate fencing replacing the solid back boundary wall and new planting. The roof was lifted to enable an upstairs bedroom with a fully glazed gable to be built making the most of the local scenery. Internal alterations included installing a staircase to the upstairs, adding bay windows to the front of the property, and creating a large modern living space within the back of the property. A contemporary and simple scheme that has created a lovely warm and sunny living space.
