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.
