Bungalow Remodelling Needs Careful Planning

There is often a problem with extending onto an existing property – although it’s great to have all that extra space – light and airy, it very often comes at a cost in terms of taking up much of the garden.  I’m thinking in particular of a bungalow near me.  It’s a fascinating project, a ’20s art deco affair.  The owner has built out and up, making it now a house – there is no conceivable way it can still be classed as a bungalow.  Obviously it came with a nice plot of land, as most substantial bungalows did when new.  Then a garage was added down the side in the ’40s.  That suited the much smaller family cars of the day, so that was replaced by a much larger one in the driveway to the left of the front of the property and the original garage has now been added into the expansion of the main building.   I’m sure that all the current building regulations have been scrupulously adhered to at every stage – an architectural practice with absolutely top notch professional experience of local by-laws and planning matters is so essential whenever such complex projects are envisaged.
