Our clients Paul and Nathalie love their North London home but were looking to expand their kitchen and update the interiors throughout the house to enhance the property’s character while also meeting their objectives of having a more substantial and brighter home. Our experienced extension builders achieved this by building a large kitchen extension designed by Alan Cox Associates Barnet to the rear of the house. The combination of triple glazed timber doors and Velux roof-lights allow warmth and natural light into the kitchen. Our team of skilled painters and decorators renovated the interiors throughout the house while working closely with the clients and the interior designer, turning their creative vision into reality.
We work with some of the best architects in London to offer you a full design and build service, in case you have not got any architectural plans yet. Our architects will first do a site survey before discussing the options with you. If you chose to go ahead with them, they will prepare all the structural and architectural drawings and will even submit a planning application for you if needed. They also offer an optional 3d visualisation of the extension, which will help you get an idea of what your completed extension will look like, including the interiors.
This large kitchen extension in Barnet, North London, was designed by award-winning Alan Cox Associates.
First, we have set up the preliminaries such as the welfare facilities, hoarding, and assessed the site by removing gas, water and electricity supply from the work area to make it safe. After all the safety measures have been put in place, the work can commence.
After our team excavated the foundations and got a go-ahead by the building inspector, we poured in the concrete. We erected temporary steel propping so that we could safely demolish part of the wall. Manufactured steel beams were then fitted as per structural drawings.
Now, it is safe to proceed with the construction of the exterior face brick walls. We have managed to source facing bricks that match the existing house perfectly so that the new extension would seamlessly blend with its surrounding and help the property keep its period charm.
Our clients opted for a pitched roof for their extension. While a pitched roof is usually slightly more expensive than a flat roof, it tends to last longer and looks better on some types of properties.
Triple glazed timber frame French doors have been fitted to complement the house, while large skylights bring in natural light.
After our engineers had completed the electric fixes and the plumbing, Handmade Kitchen Co. fitted bespoke hand painted kitchen cabinets, and our team laid the wood flooring. We then renovated the interiors throughout the whole house to create a brighter home.
