We have recently completed a fantastic home extension in Middlesex for a family who wanted to extend their home so they didn’t have to move house. The hi-spec Home Extension was built using our structurally insulated panel (SIP) technology, which we manufacture ourselves in Bedfordshire.
Our SIPs comply with the new building standards which relate to Part 6 of the Building Regulation rules. These regulations focus on the consumption of fuel and electricity in relation to building performance.
Our team of experienced Designers worked alongside the customer to produce a modern home extension which looks effortlessly part of the original main home. The exterior had to be clad in fire retardant magnolia render, due to the extension being near to the neighbouring boundaries.
For the windows and doors, the customer preferred the contemporary finish of grey aluminium bi-fold doors and window frames. They also wanted to bring in lots of natural light to their home, so they chose a large sky light to be installed in the middle of the flat roof. Because of the sky light, we had to re-engineer our standard roof so that it could take the weight of the heavy 100kg glass.
The customer fitted a kitchen into the home extension after we finished the construction, although we did install all of the electrics and chrome light and power socket fittings for a fuss-free designer touch.
