When we first spoke with Plymouth couple Mr and Mrs Jenkins about their new home improvement plans, we were excited to discover just how much renovation was involved. The whole house was to be transformed, with two floors at the side and a further single-storey rear extension. The semi-detached property would therefore be making better use of the redundant driveway, while still leaving room on the home’s forecourt for parking. The sizeable back garden gave us plenty of room to work with for the back storey, and we were able to create several new rooms for the Jenkins’ home.

The first step was to work with the couple on securing planning permission and laying down the details for the project. We have completed plenty of ambitious extension projects before, so we were able to provide plenty of insight and knowledge. Mr and Mrs Jenkins had expressed their wish to create a larger master bedroom in the family home, complete with en-suite bathroom. They also needed more storage space so a utility room was incorporated into the design. A games room and a larger kitchen were also part of the Jenkins’ ideas for their property, so we brought the extension out into the rear of the building to maximise the available space. Taking out several internal walls as we went, the couple were left with a gorgeous open plan kitchen and dining room space in their new extension.

The job called on all of our building skills, as we created the whole extension from the foundations to the roof. The original building’s structure was left relatively unchanged externally, although the dramatic changes inside really made a difference to the house’s space and light. Once built, we made sure all electrics and plumbing were installed before tidying up and leaving Mr and Mrs Jenkins to enjoy their new home. We loved working on this project, and we are very proud of the finished result.
