Home Extension in Cobh
Initial 18 square metre planning exempted development ground floor house extension in Cobh, County Cork. Phase one is a modern parapet style flat roof west facing extension to the rear of a terrace house. Site constraints required the removal of an old retaining wall, excavation in to the back garden to gain extra living space and paved external area with new retaining wall and stepped access to the existing garden level. The existing kitchen has been reconfigured to an open plan kitchen dining room, with new down stairs bathroom and utility room.
A second design was undertaken for phase 2 of the development for a future 11 square metre first floor bedroom extension. A full set of planning drawings were prepared for phase two so everything is in place to apply for planning when extra space is required to suit the needs of a growing young family.

Pitched roof extension to the rear of a semi-detached house with reconfigured exit to back garden and large bedroom with south facing window. An approximate 45 degree sloped back garden provided challenging site conditions which required extensive Structural Engineering and design. The sloped back garden was excavated and graded at 30 degrees to allow the construction of a rendered finished reinforced concrete retaining wall to act as the rear wall of the extension and provide new usable garden space. Phase 2 of the development will see the remaining sloped area excavated further with multiple terraced levels.
