Was meant to be out in the garden this weekend building my new garden office, but the weather wasn’t on my side, so I fired up SketchUp and started the design work for the house. Thinking about a two storey extension to the side (in place of the garage) and a single story extension to rear, fancy knocking through the existing living room and dining room and re-developing the kitchen. But how far can a 1930’s semi be pushed?
View of upstairs, extended third bedroom and the double size bathroom.
View from the rear of the house. Velux windows in the single story pitched roof to throw light into the living space.
Living and dining room knocked through, with furniture providing logical separation. The kitchen is slightly relocated and opens out onto the decking / back garden with the dining room table in close proximity. Great for summer dining. Small office / toy room and downstairs toilet in place of garage.
Bi-fold doors out onto the decking.
Fair bit of steel required. Think I’ll have to develop this concept a bit further to simplify.
