The design is very understated with handleless gloss white doors which contrast with the gloss finish granite work tops. The kitchen features a modern ceramic hob with a glass fronted extractor and the latest single oven with a matching microwave.

Single storey extension – Progress

Final Building control inspection done, everything ok and permission to crack on getting the building fully watertight. Once the building was tiled we installed the new upvc windows and also the Velux roof window. The roof tiles we used are a modern concrete alternative and look and feel like slate but without the weight. Electrics were installed and all the pipe work for water supply and central heating laid to the new extension. The inside walls were then boarded and plastered. We installed the fascia and soffit boards, gutter and installed the drains for the drainpipe and kitchen sink.

Elloughton – UPVC French doors with fitted cat flap.

I must admit its been a very tiring week so far, all velux windows are now fitted, the ceiling has been re-boarded and the loft space insulated. We have also fitted new double glazed French doors leading to the garden, complete with cat flap access and also a new kitchen upvc window. We decided early on in the project to leave as much of the old kitchen in place to minimise disruption although we have removed wall cupboards to make it easier to plaster the ceiling.
