We provide comprehensive advice before any commitment

Building extensions

A home extension is a great option when you are happy with the location and have the space to extend, either through a single storey or double storey. You want to improve your living arrangements and increase space we can help, starting with free advice. A ground floor rear extension can extend your kitchen into open plan or grand design style glass extension sunrooms.

Double or first floor extensions can add extra bedrooms with improved living space below. Everything we design with you will be done by an expert architectural designer, considering the likelihood of planning approval so building regulations plans can be approved.

Garage or roof conversions

One of the best ways to create an additional bedroom and offer great value for money is to convert the loft or garage. It’s generally a wasted area that can be utilised with careful design. There are however a lot of building regulations to consider before creating the plans so please read our free guide. We will design around the best way to integrate the stairs with as little sacrifice as possible in the lower floor, whilst getting the most out of the roof.

Utilising the roof space for habitable rooms can be a great way to gain an additional bedroom. We design to maximise the roof space with as little impact below and we take into account the structural elements required.

Outbuilding in open countryside

York has some of the country’s most beautiful landscapes with disused farmhouses/ buildings that can provide the shell for enigmatic and captivating buildings that are ready to be converted.  Although the government has made converting these buildings into homes easier there are still many hurdles that can prevent permission.  If you are one of the lucky ones that have a barn or outbuilding available read our online guide and book a consultation let us help us make the building into something special.

Building a new home

If you are interested in starting from scratch to build your own dream home, looking to sell land with planning permission or build to sell as a developer we can help. We can design around personal preferences or design for financial uplift, read our in-depth guide on New Build or if you’re in a rural area perhaps Barn Conversions
