Project title: Two storey rear extension 

Value: £67,000

Main contractor: Ashurst Developments (Colbury) Ltd

Project description: The clients acquired a run-down and old house in Shirley and needed the house modernized and enlarged to accommodate their family of three children.

There were three bedrooms on the first floor but the rear bedroom was accessed from the second bedroom. 

Key features:

  • Complete modernization on a tight budget
  • New kitchen
  • New first floor bathroom
  • Tight space for two storey extension due to sight line constraints
  • Combining of lounge diner to create improved living space

Works undertaken by ghd: Full contract from initial design to final completion. Statutory consents were achieved but planning restrictive due to sight line constraints from first floor bedroom windows of neighbouring properties.
