Single storey house extension design considerations

Before getting tender and building your house extension, you need to consider affordability, planning constraints, build-ability, and building regulations.

  • Rear extension plans need to consider the garden, the neighbours, and making internal rooms darker.
  • Side extensions may encroach on neighbours or prevent rear access.
  • A front house extension may affect more aesthetic consideration.

This can be a complicated procedure, but a CK designer will make sure you have the right information to make the best decision.

  • 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

Once the considerations for your single storey house extension in Sheffield or South Yorkshire are in place, it is time to explore the options available to you.

Your detailed brief and requirement list will come to life in a variety of different architectural designs showing sizes, layouts, roofs, glazing, and a range of other variables allowing you to customise your extension and make it feel like another piece of home.

This allows you then see the wider impact, how it looks on the property, and, most importantly, how it functions.

Once a concept design has been agreed, we can develop the extension plans with you adding all any specific requirements such as bi-folding doors or locating the toilet sink for extension types like bathrooms, en-suites, and kitchens.

It’s here things get more intricate and really become your own as we tailor your extension to you.

Exactly what I wanted. No sales rubbish, no broken promises. They did exactly what I asked for, right first time, for the exact price quoted. I'd definitely use the company again.

Excellent service and communication. The company correctly and quickly identified my requirements, and worked accurately and within (very reasonable) quotation. Any queries and additional dimensions or details which the design engineer had, were clearly requested, allowing me to be able to quickly furnish the exact information and measurements, and negating the need for site visits, thus keeping costs in check. The first draft of the engineering drawings were very impressive - as a project engineer involved in the materials handling industry, I am well used to working with and interpreting CAD drawings, so was able to appreciate the high level of detail and clarity therein. I have been pleased and impressed with the service provided and care taken by CK Architectural, in bringing this part of my project to a successful conclusion - the Local Authority Building Control department accepted the drawings and specifications at first draft, without any amendments or changes. I am happy to recommend this company to anyone seeking a friendly, helpful, skilled and professional service.

CK Architectural led us through our whole project of two significant extensions from start to finish. At the outset during concept the input was both practical and creative. Several of our own ideas were improved upon and other ideas added. The creation of the designs was collaborative with CKA listening to our needs and wishes and incorporating them as practically possible. The budget was agreed with CKA and they kept a tight lid on the finances. The initial plan was actually built within budget, and we just crept over due to a couple of unforeseen changes, such as the roof tiles to match current being discontinued and therefore we chose to have a new roof. CKA made frequent visits to site and it always felt as if they had the project under control. It is not until you embark upon a venture such as this, as a novice, that you realise how complex it all is. However, with CKA leading the way on drawing completion, obtaining planning permission, appointing reputable contractors and managing Building Control eveything felt smooth and was stress free for us as the client. For the service we received we thought CKS priced their involvement very fairly.

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.

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueHighly 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.

We have use the team at CK Architectural on 2 projects of ours over the years. They have never let us down. They have always worked with us to produce the designs we wanted and handled everything for us through the Planning and Building Control stage, keeping us updated at the carious stages. We will most certainly use again if we decide to do another project.

Brilliant company, great service from start to finish, cant recommend highly enough.

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

Planning permission for house extensions in Sheffield & South Yorkshire

When we have perfected your extension design, we will then take you through the planning processes (there are a lot of single storey extensions that can be done under permitted development which means planning is not required).

We do advise an enquiry is made to make sure planning is not required. If planning is required, we can then get the design prepped and submitted in quick time. Our team is fully experienced in dealing with the 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 in Sheffield & South Yorkshire

With your approved single storey extension plans, you will then need to get building regulation drawings.

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.

When the plans are approved, then you can move on to the build. Our detailed drawings will be more than enough for any competent builder to build from.

Building your home extension

After all else is done, the only remaining step to undertake is the building of the extension itself. This is where external builders are required.

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 with 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.
