I am in the process of buying this house (Yay!) and hope to complete before the end of March.
The house is small, particularly the kitchen and the dining room is narrow. I cannot extend any further back as the patio garden is tiny and I want to keep some outside space .... but I can extend (2.69m L by 2m W) to the side of the kitchen - see floor plans below - and knock this through to the dining room.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I can do this to maximise the light into the house as it is northern facing at the back? Get some sky lights put in?
Any ideas on how much such a small extension and knock through plus kitchen would cost? I can see lots of drain pipes also along the back of the kitchen - are these fairly easy for a builder to move?
New kitchen size will be c. 4.7m x 4.4m - I have included a proposed new floorplan I drew myself..
Any ideas and tips welcome!
Have no idea what I am doing regarding building works but want to plan and budget
