Whether you’re looking for kitchen extensions, living room extensions, side extensions, rear extensions, or front extensions, CK architectural can help across the whole of Sheffield & South Yorkshire with any type of house extension.

Single storey house extension in Sheffield

House extensions in Bristol & Bath are a great way to add living space to your home. They provide you with the space you need by adding new rooms or even helping with existing room layouts by adding open spaces or hidden away coves of relaxation. Rear & side house extensions, for example, are a great way to incorporate practical spaces like utility rooms, open plan kitchens, study areas and anything else you should need. Front extensions on the other hand may be better suited to enhanced living spaces, immaculate entranceways or even impressive feature rooms to be the pride of your home.

Whatever your house extension needs to do for you, the CK architectural team can help make it happen. With years of design experience in taking house extensions in Bristol & Bath from designs through to planning stages, building regulations and even project management, We have all the tools that you need to create the perfect addition.

Finalising your home extension design

Before we take on your house extension, there are always a few key areas that we look through in detail with our clients to make sure everything is in place for the best project possible. Things like the current size and layout of your home, plans for your house’s future, the purpose of the extension and anything else we need to know are great places to start.

Coupling that up with things like potential planning limitations, like boundary walls, lighting, privacy and even aesthetics all help us to create a finalised design that’s your perfect fit, presenting you with options along the way so that you can make the best decision.

Highly recommend CK Architectural. Chris and his team did a great job gaining planning permission for a new build and renovation of an existing property. We hit some dead ends with the planning officer but Chris found different ways of getting around the problems without going over budget.

For someone far removed from the building / planning industries the thought of where to start when thinking of a big extension project to my house (two story to the side and wrap around of semi-detached 3 bed) was a little daunting at first. Luckily, after obtaining a competitive quote, I enlisted the services of CK Architectural and have been very impressed with not only the service received but the ease at which they have made the whole process. After listening to my thoughts and the reasons for needing the extension work doing, the architect came up with a great design that encompassed everything that was needed. Even when I changed my mind over a couple of aspects, Donna, Chris and the team were quick to administer any alterations. Every visit to the house for measurements / planning etc has happened without a hitch with all members of the team we've encountered being punctual and professional at all times. The best thing has been by far the ease at which CK have made of getting all council and local authority sign off for the project. All I have needed to do is pay the fees at the required time, no stress involved and all went through seamlessly. I'm now at the stage where I have the drawings to hand and have submitted them to builders to obtain quotes. Importantly, the feedback so far from the builders indicates the project to be within the budget specifications I explained to CK during the first consultation. Very happy customer 🙂 Carl.

Excellent Service and prompt!! I have taken CK's service twice. Chris and his team is very helpful and most importantly have enough patience to accommodate my frequently changing mind set. I would happily recommend any one to CK Architectural and wish them all the best.

You will get the best design options so that you can make the right choices

Single storey extension planning permission

Most single storey extensions can be built under permitted development rights unless they are larger than the limits. We give you all of the necessary advice and where necessary make permitted development enquiries on your behalf too, so you’ll know what the most likely course of action is going to be before you make any final decisions.

We know exactly what is legally required to be in place before you begin any building. Our clear planning application drawings present your design in the correct scales, site maps, and any other relevant documentation to validate the application. We will check the design against the planning guidance such as overdevelopment, impact on the street scene, right of light, overshadowing, loss of amenity and outlook, massing/dominance, loss of privacy, all giving you the best possible chance of success.

Building regulations for house extensions

Our detailed building regulations plans will include all the necessary detail for your house extension in Bristol or Bath, such as structure, the passage of sound, disability access, drainage, resistance to moisture, collision, impact, heat loss, ventilation, light, an emergency escape and much more. Most alterations to your home will require a building certificate from a building control body, either local authority or private building inspector.

Once the design and planning have been approved you will then need a detailed set of drawings. These drawings can be used for gaining quotations and will be checked against as the building is inspected. Our specification demonstrates the new extension can and will be built in accordance with the building regulations approved documents. These building regulations drawings will then be submitted for a full plans check, amended if necessary and once approved they will be the standard that is built to and inspection against. Drawings will be used when the building control officer inspects the build to ensure the builder is carrying out the works correctly.

A dedicated network of experienced professionals

Building your home extension

It’s always important when choosing your builder to do your research. Choose someone with experience, reviews, and someone you would feel comfortable working with and talking to about your concerns. Make sure you are clear with your timescale, expectations and specific finishes.

When a builder provides you with a quote, it should be easy to read and have reference to our detailed approved building regulations drawings. Ask who will be doing the work, will they be sub-contracting and who is responsible. Make sure you know when you need to pay check their payment structure and be comfortable with it. Don’t always go with the references they give you, it’s not hard to find out where else they may have been working.

On our drawings, we try to add as much construction detail as possible, but some assumptions have to be made and certain areas investigated before moving forward. We will offer help throughout for both you and the builder and we will come to site if help is required, as well as offering a comprehensive project management service to take care of all of this alongside you, too.
