Single Storey Extension Project

A customer approached us this summer to enquire about an extension on their home. The customer was looking to improve their home by adding another bedroom, a home office, and to extend their dining room to make more space.

As well as doing the building/structural work for the extension, we were also asked to manage the whole project right through to flooring, decoration and other finishing tasks.

We began working in May, taking a team of five tradesman onto site in order to provide a quick turnaround and minimal disruption.

The project consisted of:

  • Digging out footings and drainage
  • Laying the concrete footings
  • Laying the footing blocks to raise the foundations to ground level
  • Installing foul and rainwater drainage
  • Preparing the floor with hardcore and damp-proof membrane, followed by insulation and concrete
  • Laying brickwork up to roof level including damp-proof course
  • Installing the timber roof, fascias and gutters
  • Laying the concrete roof tiles
  • Fitting verges & ridge tiles
  • Doing first-fix joinery work
  • Building stud walls
  • Doing first-fix electrics and plumbing
  • Plaster-boarding and plastering the inside
  • Insulating the loft
  • Doing second-fix joinery, plumbing & electrics
  • Decorating and floor coverings

We used a number of local suppliers for top-quality local materials, including SIG Roofing in Rotherham, and Aire Concrete at Wakefield.

From start to finish, the project took around ten-to-twelve weeks. The customer is delighted with the end result; so much so that we are due to start a similar extension project for a member of his family in August.
