The house wasn't renovated for a long time before this project. The old extension was nowhere near to the modern standards. Our task was to demolish this old extension, build a new double storey extension (ground floor - kitchen, 1st floor - bathroom), carry out a loft conversion and renovate the existing rooms. The main challenge was the building of extension: engineered black bricks don't take moisture at all and cold wet winter time did not help us. We could only build few rows of bricks in one day - the mortar did not set quick enough, time and patience was required. It took us around 6 months to complete this project - mostly because of poor weather conditions and some delays. We like the rear facade - it's very modern and loft dormer slates go well with black bricks.
