Crafting Excellence in Every Corner: The Exquisite Wrap-Around Extension

In a recent and exciting project, CJ Smith’s takes pride in completing a sophisticated rear extension, partially encompassing a side and garage conversion, often referred to as a wrap-around extension. Spanning 16 weeks, this project not only expanded the living space by an impressive 26 square metres but also introduced a blend of aesthetic appeal and practicality to the family home.

One of the most notable challenges faced during this project was the intricate process of propping up a corner of the house to insert complex steelwork. This task demanded not only technical expertise but also a keen eye for maintaining the structural integrity of the property.

Additionally, the project required a considerate approach as the family continued to live in the house throughout the construction. Ensuring their safety and comfort, especially considering the presence of young children, was a top priority. This presented a unique set of challenges, but with careful planning and execution, the team ensured a smooth process with minimal disruption to the family’s daily life.

On the brighter side, the project saw the creation of a sleek porcelain path and patio. Starting from the front, it elegantly winds its way to the rear of the property, not only enhancing the aesthetic value but also creating a welcoming and cohesive outdoor experience.

Furthermore, the project successfully transformed the kitchen into an open-plan living area, catering to the modern family’s needs for a spacious and inclusive environment. This new layout offers a family-friendly space, making it a hub for socialising and family activities.

One of the standout features of this extension is the installation of large rear patio doors. These doors are not just functional elements; they play a crucial role in flooding the new area with abundant natural light, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The combination of thoughtful design and the use of natural light has significantly elevated the living experience, making this extension a valuable addition to the home.

In conclusion, this project is a testament to CJ Smith’s commitment to delivering high-quality, tailored solutions that meet and exceed client expectations, reinforcing our reputation for excellence in the construction industry. Consider exploring our other projects and become inspired for your next home renovation.
