Once we'd had our tour it was time to get down to the nitty gritty and see what the team had come up with. I was assigned a member of the design team, Peter, who walked me through his ideas. We have a new build house and, as with many new builds, the rooms aren't huge. We have a good-ish lounge downstairs but the kitchen/diner is quite small with the cupboards bursting at the seams and not a lot of room for much else. Peter's designed had us remove the patio doors and put a full length extension across the back, featuring a pitched glass roof. This would give us another living space and an outdoor seating area, which would also sit under the glass roof, meaning we could dine outside even if the weather turned.
I was really impressed with the detail of the design - right down to the layout of the kitchen, should we wish to change it, which made a much better use of the space.

Peter had thought about the design from the inside to the outside and had added a pitched roof to balance our new loft conversion on top of the house.
