Getting the best from your property
Sometimes Victorian houses in particular (and some Edwardian houses too) have very small bathroom or kitchen areas. These functional areas of the house were not considered to be valuable for architects of that time, who preferred to make dining and living rooms much bigger for communal activities. Fortunately, we can update such rooms to make them suitable for your family, or for inviting friends and guests around.
Making use of external space, perhaps from a garage or other area, we are able to build outwards. If you have a growing family then we can make use of the unusually large Victorian or Edwardian loft space to extend into this area. Moreover, such loft extensions are likely to be environmentally friendly in terms of keeping heat in the house.
