Terrace Home Renovation and Extension House Plans

by Build It
29th January 2018

When the Boardmans purchased a dated, end-of-terrace property, they envisioned how to improve the dwelling – by adding a two-storey side and rear extension to create an open-plan living area on the ground floor.

Now complete, the ground floor includes a new open-plan space with separate zones for cooking, dining and relaxing. An atrium-style double-height stairwell floods the hallway with light and creates a statement feature for the home.

The property’s main bathroom is one of the Boardmans’ favourite elements, as the shower cubicle is positioned within the suspended half-cylinder structure that projects into the atrium.

Quirky touches include a laundry chute, and  vintage light fittings that the couple spotted in a local restaurant.
