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.
Before your design is underway, there are several things to consider to make sure you’re getting something that can truly work for you. Affordability, planning constraints, buildability, building regulations and the impact on the rets of the property are all major points that need careful thought. 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.
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 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.
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 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. Firstly, we will add the necessary detail in accordance with the approved documents and collate any other requirements such as structural engineering. We submit on your behalf to either local authority building control or private inspectors and always work to gain approval.
BUILDING YOUR HOUSE 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 mange the project ourselves by project management.
