Extend bay window upstairs
I've recently bought a 1930s house with a great bay window in the living room. I'd like to know how to go about extending this bay window upstairs so that the bedroom directly above also has a bay window. I'd like it to have a pitched roof too. Also, there's a potential damp problem on the walls surrounding the window downstairs which, but the looks of it, is most likely due to the pointing needing re-doing. Just don't know where to start. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Laura, yes this is definitely possible from a building perspective , obviously you will need planning permission to do it. I would be more than happy to submit an application for you. I have seen a slightly more adventurous example at 32 Swains Lane, London N6 where a 2 storey front bay was extended up into the loft making a 3 storey front bay, see link or take a look on google maps street view,
best wishes Lee
