Period Property Extension, Ripple near Deal, Kent


Single storey extension with external paving and landscaping.


This is a single story extension, constructed to the rear of a period house situated in a lovely rural area near Deal in Kent. The works involved demolition of an existing conservatory and replacement with this tastefully conceived extension which is intended to bring the garden into the house and to take the lounge area of the house into the garden. It has been traditionally constructed on foundations with face brickwork walls to the exterior and blockwork and plastered inner walls.

The ceiling is vaulted to give a feeling of space and has 4 large Velux roof windows installed to provide the needed light to the inner rooms. The external windows and doors were all supplied by George Barnsdale ( in Lincolnshire, a company which manufactures top quality windows and doors to achieve modern requirements. We have been using George Barnsdale products for several years everything comes to us pre-decorated and carries long warranties on both the frames and the decorations.

The lounge area was fitted with bi-folding doors which is a great way of bringing the outside in during the summer months whilst providing unhindered views all year round. The exterior consisted of a slip level patio and steps, hard formed using blue engineering bricks and infilled with a riven sandstone paving slab. The floor was split level and was tiled using a tastefully selected Victorian style pattern over underfloor heating. Lighting was in the form of downlights mixed with external lighting around the paved area and all looks very warm and welcoming at night

The aim was to complete for Christmas and our cleaners were the last out on Tuesday 22nd December. Everyone happy and a great looking addition to our clients home.


The client was extremely satisfied with the high quality of finish and as we completed in the build-up to Christmas, he provided several very welcome bottles of wine to be distributed to our staff members who worked on his project.
