Architectural drawings for planning permission
Brayford Designs were consulted on this scheme to offer affordable solutions to a client with a defined budget. The brief was to create a side extension to house additional bedrooms on the first floor and provide a garage, utility space and porch/ lobby area on the ground floor. Affordable functionality was the key to a happy client on this project. This was challenging when the design had to maintain access through to the rear garden whist maximising the modest available space.
The first floor was very simple to design and the space was amble enough to house the master bedroom, en suite and dressing area. The ground floor however had some existing design flaws that needed to be resolved in the final proposal. The current layout meant the living room had to be used as a thoroughfare to access the kitchen as there was no hallway leading to the rear ground floor rooms.

Drawings for an Extension
We worked closely with our structural engineers to offer a ground floor layout that created a hallway running adjacent to the stairs so the living room is no longer a circulation space. The hallway would now be used to access the kitchen and newly created utility room and WC. This however limited the remaining space to provide a lobby and garage. We resolved this by creating a front overhang and moved the front elevation forward. This would now house a large lobby area and internal garage. Access front the property frontage to the rear garden was maintained via a corridor to the rear of the garage with a secondary door located on the garage rear wall.
Integrating a garage space into the habitable part of the property means that the walls and ceiling separating the spaces need to be enhanced to offer 30 minute fire protection. This was achieved using 30 minute fire rated doors and using fire line plaster board on the walls and ceilings. To see the garage conversion in Lincoln we did go here.

What we offer
Building a Better Future
The design gave access to the rear garden, created all of the usable spaces that the client desired and went above and beyond to resolve an existing design flaw by providing a hallway space. This was something the clients had not considered possible and were really happy with the innovation. As a measure of success against the affordable but functional brief, the client received quotes for the building work that came in under budget
