Sometimes, a simple design can produce the most impressive results. Take a look at this charming red brick extension we constructed for one of our Wirral clients, for example. A beautiful build, perfectly matching the existing brickwork.As the gallery pictures demonstrate, this was about as straightforward a project as we could hope for. The construction times reflect that, taking a mere eight weeks from start to finish. Taking into account the size of the build and that we fitted a kitchen at the same time, that’s a good result.
Like every extension, we start off with the relevant groundworks. Since this one was to include a kitchen, we needed adequate draining and plumbing laid around the foundations. Once they were set, we were in a position to raise the walls.
For the walls, we used face bricks. These are functionally the same as your standard masonry bricks, just with a different finish. While masonry bricks often have a rough surface, face bricks are usually smoother. It’s purely a cosmetic choice but we’re sure you’ll agree it sets off the finished extension very well.
This is a single plane roof, which is simple to include with any extension as it requires little in the way of support. Vertical joists provide a solid base for the horizontal beams that we use to lay the tiles on. In this instance, our client chose red scalloped tiles, rather than the traditional flat slates. It’s a bold look for an extension, but one that works well here.
