Our plans

These aren't quite the finished plans (I didn't have small enough images copied to hand to scan for here), but these aren't far off final plans.At the front, the main change will be the removal of the existing hideous porches, reinstate an original type canopy over the main door (no.3 on left), and add a false door to no.4.

Its all change at the back! The current eyesore that is the dormer extension on no.4 goes and is replaced with a new first floor extension across the back of the entire property. This will house three bathrooms, a large double bedroom and our dressing room.

On the ground floor we are extending the current extension behind no.3 to include a entrance-cum-boot room which leads into the enlarged kitchen diner with folding-sliding doors, and the flat room replaced with a pitched slate roof. Two sets of french doors lead out of the new main reception under the canopy and on to the garden.

The ground floor will be rendered and the first floor extension will be clad with black weather boarding (barn style)

Here you can see the extent of the first floor extension, the extension of the current roofline to form a canopy along the rear of the house to the back door, and the new gable end windows for the main reception (ground) and study.

The new kitchen/diner replaces the kitchen, utility and bathroom of the current no.3. Receptions 2 and 3 are pretty much as they are now, but in no.4, the existing reception and kitchen are combined to form a great new large reception room with open staircase. The shower-room will serve reception 2 which doubles as a ground floor bedroom.

Upstairs, bedrooms 1 and 2 are as they are now, but with the addition of ensuite bathrooms and a dressing room for bedroom 1. The study is formed out of two existing bedrooms (and will double as another spare bedroom) whilst bedroom 3 and the bathroom are formed by the new extension.
