    Any thoughts on this extension roof design?

    Thanks for the suggestions and I’d look at a reverse lean to as option 2. We’d like the lean to glass roof to bring in more light but yes downside is less downlighters…

    Any thoughts on this extension roof design?

    Lol I know but I wanted this design from the beginning but worried that building controls will object the idea of using balcony as roof. SAP calculations were done and BC approved.

    Any thoughts on this extension roof design?

    Hello all, Getting an single storey extension done at the moment but first floor balcony is restricting the height of the lean to glass roof. I have attached a photo to show the balcony. The latest designing thinking is to utilise the balcony as part of the roof so we have part roof part...

    Neighbour refuse access

    Thanks for all the advice. We’re gonna have a lean to glass roof so no guttering on the side see example photo attached (please ignore the flank windows on the side). We’d be happy with 1mm like woody suggested so will chat to the builders about it. Just on PWA, we just don’t want to spend...

    Replace traditional garage door with a wooded garage door with window panels

    Hello, I live in a townhouse with internal garage and I'm looking to replace my garage door with a wooden garage door with window panels. Do I need to get planning permission? I know this does not change the footage of the property so technically would not require planning but the style of the...
