This house extension has added a open-plan living / dining space to the existing house, as well as a utility room and additional bathroom. The existing ground floor layout was changed to take advantage of the new living space. The new room has a sliding glazed door overlooking the private rear garden with a great view of the Forth bridges beyond.

Construction Costs

The project cost £45,000 + VAT. This works out at £1,500 + VAT per square meter. This included altering one room in the existing house.
