Some Recent Projects in Croydon

Some of the most common house extensions we get asked to do by our clients are single storey extension. These tend to be the simplest way to add more living space to your house. Whether you live in a Bungalow, a Detached House, a Terraced House, a Semi Detached or even a ground floor flat, a single storey extension can be a great way to improve your space and your living standard.

There are many types of single storey extensions we undertake such as

  • Rear single extension
  • Kitchen extension
  • Wrap Around extension
  • A front porch extension
  • Accessible extensions

Every Project is Unique

We try to work with your requirements to come up with a design that suits your lifestyle. From open plan areas to adding utility rooms and keeping the clutter away or creating enough space for a home office, to having a small snug or play area, or adding accessibility to the house and living space, everyone has their own requirement and reason for carrying out an extension. Our design ideas focus on the need, while keeping in mind that various designs have varying degree of costs attached to them.
