Single-Storey Extension

“DBCP advised at every step of the way throughout the 10-week build of our kitchen extension. The insulation that was specified by the building control surveyor has resulted in the kitchen being the warmest part of the house. It’s fantastic.”  – Steve and Sally Jagger

Home owners Steve and Sally Jagger wanted to add a single storey extension to the ground floor of the rear of their semi-detached house to create a large open plan, modern kitchen.

Local builder, P & S Services, engaged DBCP at the beginning of the project to advise throughout the build project.

Built in the 1920s, the kitchen of the Chesterfield-based property had been extended once previously. The new extension was built off the existing extension across the back of the property. To blend with the existing extension the new one was fully rendered.

As part of the build, DBCP specified superior insulation and the hard wiring of two smoke alarms to ensure maximum occupant safety and comfort.

Insulation added to both the roof and floor space, resulting in a highly energy efficient room that retains heat.

Steve said: “We are delighted with the additional space the extension has added to our home. The kitchen is now such a versatile living space and incredibly warm, which only highlights how poorly insulated the rest of the house is. That’s next on our list of home improvements.”
