The client needed some additional space in their terraced home in Liverpool and asked Heritage Builders to create a single storey extension to the rear of the property.

As part of the enabling works, we firstly had to re-route the drains for the new kitchen and ground floor WC and then demolish an old outhouse. As the outhouse was adjoined to the neighbouring property, extra care was needed when dismantling it. We also needed to raise the ground level by up to 18 inches so that the floor in the new extension was at the same height as the rest of the house. In addition, we also demolished and rebuilt the wall at the rear of the yard.

A modern, contrasting buff-coloured brick was chosen for the external walls of the extension. Skylights were fitted to the roof and bi-fold doors, opening out onto the back yard, were also installed. The interior was fitted out to a very high standard, providing a bright and airy living space.

To complement the new extension, we rendered and painted the exterior of the rest of the house. The result is that the client not only got some much-needed extra space, but also a much more modern and appealing home.
