One-storey renovation of existing extension in Liverpool

This project for one of our Liverpool customers was quite interesting. The property in question already had an extension attached to it, which is normally a bonus. In this instance, that was not actually the case. The reason for this is that the extension wasn’t really fit for purpose. While it didn’t require a whole new build, it did need extensive renovation work to satisfy our brief.

Making the most of what we have

With a renovation like this, we try to utilise as much of the existing building as possible. In this instance, that mean the existing extension, of course. It was immediately obvious that it needed a new sloping roof to provide extra head height, and that this would need reinforcing. The main walls were okay, but would need to be repointed. The outer wall, adjacent to the house, would be removed entirely – but more on that later. As you can see, there was already a lot of work to consider before we even lifted a hammer!

Working from the ground up

Our brief was to extend the existing kitchen / dining room into this area. For this we needed to ensure that gas, electric, and water lines were attached. Fortunately, the extension is based on a raised floor, which gave us a useful cavity for the relevant pipework. To ensure its safety, and to make the finished renovation look good, we would lay down new joists and a new floor.

Raising the roof

The biggest part of the renovation was replacing the roof. This required a timber framework, as you’ll be able to make out from the pictures. Extra support would ultimately be provided by the reinforced frame of the triangular window. That said, the initial roofing structure was perfectly stable, especially once we’d added the leads and slates.

Walls: who needs ‘em?

As mentioned, we replaced the outer wall with a patio window, making the extension light and airy. We also knocked through the adjoining property wall to the property to make it all one large room. The overall effect in terms of light and space was remarkable, even before we fitted new units to the kitchen.

A job well done

It took us 16 weeks to complete this project, and our client was more than satisfied with the result. Their combined kitchen and dining room looks and feels great.
