    Hi all,
    I currently have a terraced house with a 3 x 2m kitchen extension in the rear yard. This extension is estimated to be around 25 years old, is of a solid 9 inch red brick wall construction with concrete floor, flat roof and with concrete render externally and plaster internally that has been battened and panelled over with wood.

    The current extension is proving too small. All other things (any required planning etc.) aside is it physically/technically possible to extend onto the existing extension and meet building control approval or will it be necessary to pull down the existing extension and start afresh? I'm looking to extend the existing extension around 1m for the kitchen and then onto that a further 2m for a store so an extra 3m in total.

    You either design the new walls to be as thick as the existing ones, or you re-line the existing to match the inner face of the new walls
