Double storey extensions

Double storey extensions are an incredible way to truly maximise your house value and make more space at the same time.

Double storey extensions are an incredible way to truly maximise your house value and make more space at the same time. They are made up of the same expenses as a single storey extension due to the similar process, and with just a few extra steps, you can get much more space for only a fraction of the cost more than a single.

If you’re looking to acquire a double storey extension for you own home, CK Architectural are a great way to go about it. Operating across Sheffield, Doncaster, Barnsley, Rotherham, and the rest of south Yorkshire too, our double storey extension service is unparalleled due to our unique business structure.

We guide you through every step of both of the two-storey extension design to help you truly maximise your properties potential in every possible aspect.

We provide comprehensive advice before any commitment

Designing a double storey extension

Our extensive experience in design allows us to help your dream double storey extension come to life. With just a few small details and a thorough analysis of your property and needs, we can get to work on making your house everything you want it to be.

It is highly likely that your double storey extension will require full Planning Approval from your local council, so we will investigate any potential restriction when designing your extension.

We will work with you and demonstrate different layouts to help you understand the functionality of the space available and create your house extension plans.

CK Architectural also offer 3D Visualisation to help you understand and explore the design of your double storey extension with complete clarity. Simply ask for more details when you’re ready.

Planning permission your home extension design

When you are planning and designing your double storey extension with CK Architectural, our Architectural Designers will take into consideration any restrictions such as impact on the neighbours and the surrounding area.

We will also take into consideration any obstacles that the planning department may throw at us, working closely with Sheffield and South Yorkshire council to keep your expectations real, viable, and achievable to create your double extension.

When grey areas do arise, we can work with you and the council to write a tailored planning statement, alas, some restrictions are “set in stone” and we will not be able to work around them.

This situation will depend on your circumstances individually, and we will be happy to advise. Simply get in touch to speak to an expert.

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.

Excellent Service and prompt!! I have taken CK's service twice. Chris and his team is very helpful and most importantly have enough patience to accommodate my frequently changing mind set. I would happily recommend any one to CK Architectural and wish them all the best.

Project management for your double storey extension

Finding Builders, checking quotes and checking contracts can be a stressful time and that’s before your build has even started.

For peace of mind and reassurance, you can always choose to get a 3rd party to project manage your double storey extension.

CK Architectural offer a Project Management service where they will manage the project from start to finish, removing the stress of finding a trusted builder and ensuring they stay on time, on design and on budget.

You will be regularly informed of the progress and costings involved in your project, and only need to talk with us rather than the builder. Nothing is left to interpretation as we manage who gets paid after checking that they have reached the agreed stage and to the agreed standard, saving time, money, and stress collectively.

We update you every step of the way through the entire project

Notes for building your home extension

Your detailed home extension plans allow any competent builder in Sheffield and South Yorkshire to price and build correctly. You will get accurate quotations from them if they asses the site as well.

Although we will do our best to warn or design against potential building issues, when a build takes place sometimes issues do arise from aspects not undertaken by ourselves. It is worth remembering we cannot see underlying issues behind walls or underground.  You should make allowances for this and ensure that the builder prices for issues if they arise.

Be aware to look out for poor ground and drainage and make sure the builder undertakes a CAT scan before excavation.

With the larger projects let CK Architectural take care of the administration and preparation with our project management team.
