Single Storey Extension

single story

A single-storey extension involves an addition to the back or side of a residential property. Based on your lifestyle, we help you extend your living space and breathe elegance into your home.

Increasing your home’s footprint, a single-storey wrap-around extension combines a rear extension with the side extension to form an L-shaped structure at the back side of your property. In this way, we can assist in bringing the unutilised home areas under use to extend your kitchen, make a bathroom, or add extra storage, living room, or workspace.

A single storey extension is the simplest way to seamlessly expand the possibilities of your home. Based on your lifestyle, we can help you extend your living space, provide open plan areas, and improve the layout of your home and the flow of natural light – altogether breathing elegance into your home. In many cases, a single-storey extension can be undertaken within the parameters of Permitted Development without the need for planning permission. Building an extension adds value and is also a cost-effective alternative to moving home, especially with the cost of stamp duty on larger homes

Other forms of single storey home extensions:
Side return extension

A side return extension is a specific type of home extension that involves utilising the narrow, usually unused space that runs alongside the ground floor of a building. This space is often found in terraced or semi-detached houses and is typically located between the main house and an adjoining wall or boundary. Side return extensions are popular in urban areas where properties are built close together, and homeowners are looking to maximise their living space without expanding upwards.

Wraparound Extension

A single-story wraparound extension is a type of home addition that involves extending a single level of a building around one or more sides of the existing structure. In essence, it wraps around the existing building, often in an L-shape or U-shape configuration. This extension adds extra living space to the home while maintaining a consistent single-story level throughout the entire addition.
