Home Extension – Bedfordshire

House extension- Leighton Buzzard

The clients lived in a small 1930s house near the centre of Leighton Buzzard. The house was one of a number of small properties which did not cater well with modern living in terms of a suitable kitchen and dining space and was disconnected from the rear garden.

The property was a narrow floor plate and involved adaption and removal of an existing poorly constructed extension which was small and uninsulated. A new downstairs WC was to be provided with a new modern kitchen and patio area for dining and entertaining. The extension was to fit within all permitted development rights.

Building structure

Load bearing masonry with beam and block flooring with high performance single ply roof and glazing.
