Two-storey rear extension in Caldy

Most of the time, when we’re hired to construct a new extension, we’re directed to an empty patch of ground. Our designers and engineers do their load-bearing calculations to determine the depth and size of the foundations. On occasion, we get something a little different, as with this large extension project in Caldy, on the Wirral. The main difference here was that the property already had an extension of sorts. You’ll see from the photographs that the house had a brick and glass conservatory attached before we even got there.

Yes, the brief for this particular project was to get rid of the conservatory and replace it. The customer wanted a two-storey brick extension with a living room below and a bedroom upstairs.

Use what we’ve got

The baseline for the extension was to be the same size as the conservatory, at least as far as floorspace is concerned. This gave us an immediate benefit. The conservatory itself was built on solid foundations and had a flagged area surrounding it. This advantage gave us a head-start when it came to erecting the ground floor.

Out with the old…

We’re happy to demolish or dismantle any pre-existing building or extension on your property. As an environmentally conscious company, we always look for ways in which the materials can be repurposed. Bricks, for instance, are often hard-wearing and usually fit to be used again in another project. Given that, it would be pointless to just send them off to landfill. Similarly, uPVC window frames and the panes of glass can all be refitted, or at least recycled. The same goes for timbers, copper wiring, pipework and the like.

…and in with the new

Once the conservatory had been cleared, we inspected the foundations to ensure they were suitable. Our calculations completed, we resurfaced where we had taken up the conservatory. This left us a nice blank canvas to work from, which would also make laying the floor easier later. As neither floor required draining or plumbing, we were able to start erecting the walls straight away. With a large window taking up three of the four downstairs walls, we used reinforced girders as corner supports.

The rest of the extension was quite straightforward, resulting in the quality build you can see in the gallery photographs.
