Plan a replacement extension to a semi-deteched house - Architecture job in Canterbury, Kent

Job description

I've just bought a house with the intention of renovating and extending it before I move in. The house is a conventional, brick walled, tiled roofed, semi-detached, house, built in about 1957.

In the 1980's a narrow, flat roofed, extension was added off of the original back door of the house, to serve as a utility room. I want to pull down this existing extension and build a new extension to the same depth, but across the full width of the house, which is currently laid to patio.

I intend to use the new extension to replace the existing kitchen, so planning for the plumbing, electrics and ventilation for an extractor will be involved. The existing extension is flat roofed and I would like to replaced wit with a sloped, tiled roof to match the main roof.

I am hoping to move the existing UPVC double doors at the back of the house in the new extension and add a cat-flap into he back garden. The new extension should feature a new UPVC door in the wall facing the driveway that runs down the detached side of the house.

I am looking for an architect to: 1) Consult with me about design necessities for building regulations and planning permission requirements. 2) Provide drawings of the proposed extension for planning and to provide builders a design to work to.

I would like to have the extension complete by July so the sooner you can start the better.

  • Added 30th January, 2017 : I am actively looking to hire an architect. I have not sought advice from the planning office. I do not have a builder lined up yet (the one I was planning to use is too busy this year) I am the freehold property owner.

Forgot to mention the house is in Barton road, Canterbury.


Feedback for LT Drawing Services

Jason has been (and continues to be) of invaluable assistance during the design, drawing and planning of my extension.

He showed insight in to project beyond that of the completion from our first meeting.

He has been timely, complete and precise in our every communication and delivered drawings.

He was even able to recommended the builder, that I eventually contracted to to the construction work.

If I ever have a similar project in future I would certainly pick Jason Drew again.
