CK Architectural York - Loft Conversions
CK Architectural York - Single Storey Extensions


A home extension is a great option when you are happy with the location and have the space to extend, either through 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 sun rooms. 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.


One of the best ways to create an additional bedroom and offer great value for money, is to convert the loft, it’s generally 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 in to account the structural elements required.
