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 and drawings 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.

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.

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

Single storey extension planning permission

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

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 onto the build. Our detailed drawings will be more than enough for any competent builder to build from.

A dedicated network of experienced professionals

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.
