Pondfields Drive, KippaxExtension and Internal Alterations
Pondfields Drive is a prime example of a loft conversion to a bungalow, with many homeowners choosing to increase the size of their homes instead of moving. We have seen a big increase in this type of domestic extension. In this case we advised that the client to go for a flat roof dormer window which increased the usable space within the roof dramatically over the use of a pitched roof dormer. Our design relocated the existing downstairs bedrooms upstairs to feature alongside an additional bedroom which freed up this downstairs space for a new open plan kitchen diner. Subject to the extent of the alterations being made in most cases a loft conversion can be undertaken within your Permitted Development Rights, not only is this a much faster route than obtaining full planning permission it also costs less.
