Extending into the side balcony
I have a 3 floor edwardian semi-detached house and I would like to put in a second bath room. There is a balcony on the second floor to the side of the house, approx size is 2600mm by 1100mm. Looking from the front of the house it is on the left above the front door hallway. There is a window from the second hallway looking out to the balcony on one side and a small bedroom window on the end (L-shape).
Its not really used and seems a waste of space so I would like to build an extension and put in a shower, toilet and basin with a door from the hallway.
I also live in a conservation area.
Is this extension feasible? If so how would I go about it and what are the approximate cost and timescale?
yes if you go by local planning by laws and match the exsisting house fasade make sure you understand there codes and them of what you plan on doing

you would be better consulting your planning department and conservation officer, this coul save you a lot of time and moneythey prefer you to involve them from the start rather than later,regards Terry.
