Below is a selection of before and after photos of our recently completed jobs with a brief description to illustrate the planning laws we have to work within. (click to enlarge photo's)
1. Detached House With Two Storey Rear Extension
On this job both neighbours had already added 2 storey extensions,which increases the likelihood that you can do the same.
2. Detached Barn Conversion With Single Storey Rear Extension
This house had a large garden and a modest single storey extension, so restrictions will be none to minimal.
3. Detached House With Two Storey Side & Part Double Extension At Rear
On the rear extension we could not add second storey close to either neighbours boundary because the proposed extension would create a shadowing effect, blocking the light to their rear windows.
4. Semi Detached House With Single Storey Rear Extension, Full Width
Because both neighbours had single storey extensions, it was possible to build right up to both boundary fences.(see example 5)
5. Semi Detached House With Single Storey Rear Extension, Built Away From Neighbours Fence
On the right hand side the extension cannot be built close to fence as it would restrict light to neighbours ground floor window.(see example 4)
6. Semi Detached House With Double Side & Single Storey Rear Extension
Large 2 storey side extension, only possible because neighbouring property is a good distance away from it.
7. Semi Detached House With Single Storey Wrap Around & Part Double At Rear
In this job we went all around the side and back in single storey but only permitted a narrow double storey extension at rear because any wider would break the 45 degree rule, and restrict light in to both neighbours’ windows.
