What structural work is involved?

Turn wasted outdoor space into a flexible living area with a side-return extension

1) A new wall is built on either the boundary of you and your neighbour’s land, or solely on your side of the boundary.

2) A roof is added (consider a fully glazed design or one with several skylights to flood the interior with light).

3) The side wall to the existing rear room is either completely or partially knocked through. A steel frame may need to be inserted in the wall to support this new opening.

4) A new floor is usually put in, level with the existing floor.
