Modern Extension and Renovation

The Gosforth home of Mr and Mrs Grey has been transformed by JD Joinery and Building Services into a stylish and spacious contemporary home.

The project involved a complete transformation of the existing internal and external house structure to create a layout that more readily supported an open plan style of modern living.

The rear of the property was removed and a large structural steel installed to support the creation of a new first floor extension for an additional bedroom and ensuite bathroom. The steel for this particular property was so large that a crane was used to position the steel supports in the correct place and support the new floor above in addition to the new open plan kitchen to the rear. It took over a week to fit into place and was designed and installed to ensure all ceilings on the ground floor were completely flush – a fundamental design aspect key to the overall success of the scheme.

The light-filled kitchen-dining area is a wonderfully contemporary space and the real centre of the home. Large sliding aluminium doors keep the full garden in view and all facias to the lower extension have been completed in matching aluminium to complement the overall look. The kitchen floor was raised to the same level as the existing house and walls were moved to create a study space and hallway leading from a new rear external door.

To the first floor, an oak and glass balustrade staircase was included within the scheme allowing the new vaulted ceiling and Velux window to open up the house to light flowing through the ground and first floor. All first floor bedrooms have been reconfigured to include ensuite bathrooms and the existing bathroom overhauled to create a sleek and stylish space.

The house was completely rewired throughout and fitted with a brand new heating system and radiators.

The final finished project offers Mr and Mrs Grey the home of their dreams with a stunning contemporary property constructed by JD Joinery and Building Services.
