Our Chaucer Road project had a four-page feature in the May issue of i-Build Magazine. One of the project images also made the cover of this month’s issue.

The article, named ‘Let there be light’, looks at how this double-height extension turned a previously dark and dull terraced house into a bright and inviting family home.

The use of a slim framed aluminium bifold door and roof glazing in the kitchen at the rear of the home allows the space to appear bigger. Maximising the flow of natural light helps reduce the need for artificial lighting during the day.

The inside of the property has a pastel colour scheme that is complemented by the vast influx of sunlight.

Indoor-outdoor living has increased in popularity over the years and in turn, so has the demand for bifold doors. Bifolding patio doors are able to be tackled neatly to one side, leaving a clear structural opening and allowing the internal and external living spaces to be merged.

In the article there is also a focus on budget and planning permission when renovating your home. The homeowners ended up going significantly over their budget however felt it was justified s this is the home they want to set roots down in and live for years to come.

When it comes to building permissions, many small extensions and home renovations are covered under the Permitted Development Act. Although there are guides online for whether or not you need planning permission it is always worth checking with your local planning authority to ensure there are no issues later in the project.
