Conservatory in Harpenden
This modest semi-detached house was transformed by the addition of a conservatory kitchen extension.

Two walls were to be removed, which required a pair of steels beams, one to be supported off the other.
A fiddly job given the space restrictions!
Steel posts were also required. Due to the point loading, these had to be on new pad foundations, one of which was in the middle of the existing house.

Miserable November weather!
Re-boarding the existing kitchen ceiling
The existing kitchen was to remain
Nearly done, it’s starting to take shape.
The new opening was worth the hassle!
The existing kitchen survived unscathed
A huge transformation
The wide opening brings great light into the lounge area
The conservatory extended past the side of the house
The new patio also makes a big difference
A subtle green/grey finish to the hardwood goes well with the light paving.
