Home Extensions: Design and Plans

Extending your home can offer you the space you require without moving and the additional advantage of adding value to your property. JbDesign can offer you a service tailored to your needs to ensure that your home extension meets your requirements in every respect.

Every home extension and client is different. That is why, at JbDesign, we will only commence design work after meeting with the client and visiting the property. This initial meeting is free so contact us get more details.

An extension that is poorly design will be both less likely to receive planning permision and could actually devalue your property. At JbDesign we will only provide design that will work for you and fit in with the local design vernacular. JbDesign are professionally chartered through CIAT (Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists) and covered by the related indemnity insurance that guarantees the quality of our design.

Below is a detailed example of the work we have done in the past so continue reading to find out more. Alternatively explore the site and find more about our building drawings or green building.

Home Extensions: Elmtree Farm

The extension of Elmtree Farm allowed for a large modern open plan areas to be formed in traditionally built farm house.

As with all home extensions, it was very important that the materials used matched the existing extension. Usually this can be achieved for older building through locally sourcing materials. At JbDesigns we hold a large materials library for use in more complicated situations.

Although this example is of a classic masornary building our experience covers all types of building including timber frame and modern building methods. Indeed due to building regulations all extensions are required to have modern standards of insulation. At Elmtree this was possible through specification of materials and specific windows types.

Home Extension : Interior space and Exteneral illustration
The open roof space with exposed beams as shown in the photo above is a key characteristic of our current designs. This great way of giving a room the wow factor and a why to introduce a modern twist on a space without compromising its heritage.

We can also provide full colour, 2D or 3D, illustrations for the purpose of selling a property from plot or to aid client visualisation of a project. For example, above the quick illustration shows the proposed extension superimposed on the original property.
