Edwardian Style Cross Over Extension in Long Crendon

Project Overview

  • Location: Long Crendon, Oxfordshire
  • Project Tags: Traditional, Livin Room, Patio, Underfloor Heating
  • Customer: Mr & Mrs Cozens

Mr and Mrs Cozens came to us in December 2012 looking to extend their property and create more living space. They also wanted to be able to enjoy their garden and have a place for Mr Cozens to enjoy his pigeon racing on a Saturday afternoon.

The size of the plot meant that we would only be able to project out 3 metres without planning permission, but because of the size of the garden and the need for extensive additional living space, we recommended to extend 4 metres from the back of the house and managed to gain planning approval with the help of our architect - Bill Brooks.

Using our own mini-digger, foundations were dug and concreted, and brickwork built to the specification and design of the client. White UPVC frames were then installed, making it a very cost effective construction. We used our new Ultraframe roof, which also has the 'Livin Room' sections, giving the feel of an extension but importantly remaining as a conservatory.

All walls were plastered, including the 'Livin room' section which was fitted with down lighters and a dimmer switch. Under floor heating was installed to provide warmth during the cold months, meaning their new living space can be used all year round. Finally, a small patio area was laid with sleepers as a retaining wall.
