Whether you’re looking for kitchen extensions, living room extensions, side extensions, rear extensions, or front extensions, CK architectural can help across the whole of Gloucestershire with any type of house extension.

Single storey house extension in Sheffield

CK Architectural are experts in single storey house extensions in Gloucestershire, with experience in Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, and the rest of the county too. Extensions are an incredible way to transform the space you have in your home, unlocking more of its true potential and in a range of different styles to work with your visions, ideas, and the rest of your home at the same time.

Rear and side extensions can help to create more functional space, like utilising glass extensions with open plan kitchens or adapting spaces to add utility rooms or ground floor bathrooms for that added movability. Front extensions are typically better suited for feature rooms, grand entranceways, and more comfortable living areas. Whatever your house extension requires, the CK Architectural expert designers can help you make the best choices.

We take your house extension through all phases of the design journey, from initial concepts and ideas through to planning stages, building regulations and even offering a project management service to help you bring the project to life. Whatever your requirements, the CK design, support and administrative teams will guide you through every step of the process and help you to truly create the perfect space for decades to come.

We provide comprehensive advice before any commitment

House extension design considerations

Before your design is underway, there are several things to consider to make sure you’re getting something that can truly work for you. Each of them has a huge impact on what will and will not be possible for your finished project, so they need careful thought at every single stage of the architectural process.

The CK team will factor in all of this with you in detail, making sure you have all of the information about your project so that you can make the best decisions for your unique situations.

Some of the most influential factors are:

  • Affordability
  • Planning Constraints
  • Buildability
  • Lighting
  • Neighbours
  • Visual Impact

We offer a free consultation in the comfort of your own home and offer all the advice you will need.

Finalising your home extension design

We love this part of the process because it is where we can show you the many ways of achieving your dream design. Your detailed brief and requirement list will come to life in a variety of different designs, showing sizes, layouts, roofing, glazing, and all other customisable areas too. This allows you to see the wider impact of the project, envision how it looks on the property, and most importantly, how it functions too.

Once a concept design has been agreed upon with all of your ideas and decisions accounted for, we can develop the design with you, adding any specific requirements such as bi-folding doors or any necessary fixtures and working to create something ready to take the next step.

Highly recommend CK Architectural. Chris and his team did a great job gaining planning permission for a new build and renovation of an existing property. We hit some dead ends with the planning officer but Chris found different ways of getting around the problems without going over budget.

For someone far removed from the building / planning industries the thought of where to start when thinking of a big extension project to my house (two story to the side and wrap around of semi-detached 3 bed) was a little daunting at first. Luckily, after obtaining a competitive quote, I enlisted the services of CK Architectural and have been very impressed with not only the service received but the ease at which they have made the whole process. After listening to my thoughts and the reasons for needing the extension work doing, the architect came up with a great design that encompassed everything that was needed. Even when I changed my mind over a couple of aspects, Donna, Chris and the team were quick to administer any alterations. Every visit to the house for measurements / planning etc has happened without a hitch with all members of the team we've encountered being punctual and professional at all times. The best thing has been by far the ease at which CK have made of getting all council and local authority sign off for the project. All I have needed to do is pay the fees at the required time, no stress involved and all went through seamlessly. I'm now at the stage where I have the drawings to hand and have submitted them to builders to obtain quotes. Importantly, the feedback so far from the builders indicates the project to be within the budget specifications I explained to CK during the first consultation. Very happy customer 🙂 Carl.

You will get the best design options so that you can make the right choices

Single storey extension planning permission

Once you have a design that you love, we can then take you through the planning processes. Many single storey house extensions in Gloucestershire can be done without planning permission, using permitted development, but we’ll work with you to help determine this before anything else takes place.

Our team is fully experienced in dealing with the Gloucestershire county council planning department, and our drawings always meet the validation criteria. Once submitted, we will keep on top of them to ensure planning will be approved on time or to make any changes to help it through successfully.

Building regulations for house extensions

Building works will need building control approval by way of approved full plans building regulations drawings and site inspection of the project. Our technicians and technologists are kept up to date with the ever-changing regulations and research new and better materials constantly.

All building work will need:

  • Building control approval
  • Full approved plans
  • Building regulation drawings
  • A site inspection of your project

We will add all the necessary detail with your approved documents and gather any other information needed such as structural engineer calculations (as we have experts in this as well). This will be submitted on your behalf to either a private inspector or the local authority building control to gain approval.

A dedicated network of experienced professionals

Building your home extension

Once you have your plans approved, you can move on to tender and build. Our detailed drawings will be enough for any competent builder to price and build from, and we advise using these drawings to form part of the quotation along with the written builder quote. We can help by recommending local builders or even manage the project ourselves through out project management.

Our suggestions in this instance would be:

  • Make sure your builder has the relevant experience, references, and availability to build your single storey extensions.
  • Choose someone you would feel comfortable working with and talking to about concerns.
  • Be clear about your timescale expectations and specific finishes
  • Extension plans for building regulations will not complete the items in the work contract.
  • Quotations should be clear and easy to read, referencing our detailed approved building regulations drawings.
  • Ask who will be doing the work, will they be subcontracting and who is responsible.
  • Make sure you know when you need to paycheck their payment structure and be comfortable with it.
  • Don’t always go with the references they give you, it’s not hard to find out where else they may have been working.

Alternatively, our complete project management service does apply here too. We’ll be dealing the builders first-hand so that you don’t have to, dealing with all progress, issues and concerns on your behalf as approved by yourself, taking the stress of building management away.

We try to add as many construction details as possible at the building regulations stage, but some assumptions have to be made and certain areas investigated before moving forward. Make sure to remedy them pre-building to avoid any costly surprises (unless we’re managing your project for you). We offer help throughout, for both you and your builder, we will come to the site if help is required.
