Recent Projects Showing a Variety of Home Extensions Designs and Conversions Projects by Thomas Building Plans Ltd


Bradley Stoke, Bristol.
Two / Double storey over-garage extension design.
Architectural design drawings, planning permission submission and structural engineering calculations / steel reports.

Although a very subtle over-garage extension, this extension provided a large master bedroom with ensuite & an extended kitchen with separate utility, while retaining the current garage. The design blends in perfectly with the current house design, resulting in an attractive and valuable addition to the house.

 

 


Little Stoke, Bristol.

Two / Double storey side extension - 
architectural design drawings, planning permission submission and structural engineering calculations / steel reports
.
 

 


Bradley Stoke, Bristol. 

Two storey side extension & attached single garage - architectural design drawings, planning permission submission and structural engineering calculations / steel reports.

The left –hand image shows the existing house, with attached garage, set back by several metres. The right had image shows the garage has been replaced with a beautiful 2 storey side extension, extending beyond the front wall of the house, providing a greatly extended kitchen & new family room to the ground floor, with additional bedrooms with ensuites to the first floor.

A new garage has been build attached to the side extension, utilising the unused space to the side of the house.

Overall, the careful design using a matching gable over the extension result in an impressive façade and greatly increased floor area.

 

 


Bradley Stoke, Bristol. 

Two storey side extension & attached single garage - 
architectural design drawings, planning permission submission and structural engineering calculations / steel reports.

The Proposed Side Elevation drawing shows the new extension with the large gables projecting to the right and to the left. Attached to this new side wall is the garage. The right-hand image shows the main extension completed, with the attached single garage still under construction.

When you compare the drawing to the actual built extension (first floor window is very close to the garage roof), it becomes apparent that accuracy and careful design are vital, to ensure the build can progress in a trouble-free manner and result in the extension being built in accordance with the approved drawings.

The left-hand picture shows the former attached garage, replaced with a large 2 storey extension and new attached garage still under construction.

 

 


Bradley Stoke, Bristol. 

Loft conversion to create home office - 
architectural design drawings and structural engineering calculations / steel
reports
.

The left-hand picture is a familiar sight for many home-owners with a modern home.... roof trusses occupying lots of space, making the loft fit for storage only. However, with careful design and structural engineering calculations, this loft can be transformed into a useable and valuable room.
 

 


Bradley Stoke, Bristol. Loft conversion to create home office.

Mid-way through construction of the loft conversion, the left-hand picture shows the trusses still in place, with the structural timber wall visible below the newly fitted Velux window.

The end result is a warm and bright loft room, fit for many uses. Although significantly smaller that most loft spaces, this loft conversion was well suited to a home office.

 

 


Filton, Bristol. 

Single storey side extension to provide study and extended kitchen -  
architectural design drawings and structural engineering calculations / steel reports..

Although a good sized house, the kitchen space was very small. After securing planning permission approval, this extension was completed within eight weeks. This single storey extension enabled the kitchen to be extended, by creating an opening in the former external wall with the use of steel beams in accordance with our structural engineering calculations. For additional light, Velux windows were put to good use in the kitchen roof. At the front of the extension, an additional reception room was created.

 

 


Bradley Stoke, Bristol. 

Two storey side extension - architectural design drawings, planning permission submission and structural engineering calculations / steel reports.

Two storey side extension to provide floor-to-roof family room, extended kitchen and new master bedroom to first floor.

 

 


Fishponds, Bristol.

Loft conversion to provide master bedroom & ensuite - architectural design drawings, building plans, construction details and structural engineering calculations / steel reports.

A very typical loft conversion with roof windows to front and rear, providing a bright, welcoming and valuable space. This conversion resulted in a large master bedroom, with sizeable ensuite, whilst still utilising the storage capacity of the eaves loft space via the access hatches.

Looking at the loft space before the conversion, it is amazing how the space has been transformed to a large, warm and bright living area.

 

 


Downend, Bristol. 

Single storey side & rear extension 
- architectural design drawings, planning permission submission, structural engineering calculations / steel reports & building regulations submission / approval.

A beautiful open-plan kitchen and dining room, lit up with three roof windows in a pitched/vaulted ceiling. The former rear wall of the house has been removed, supported by a steel beam (hidden within very discrete boxing). On the top-left, the boxed-in steel supporting the former wall between the old kitchen and dining room can just be seen. The impressive transformation of this property was completed with gloss-white kitchen units and solid-wood worktops, and neutral floor tiles.
 

 


Downend, Bristol. Single storey side & rear extension.

Single storey side & rear extension - architectural design drawings, planning permission submission, structural engineering calculations / steel reports & building regulations submission / approval.

This large single storey rear/side extension resulted in a very spacious open-plan kitchen-diner merged with the former dining room and kitchen. A large utility room off the kitchen and a wet-room/bathroom (small window shown on the right of this picture) utilised the rear corner of the extension. The size of the ground floor was increased by over 70%.
 

 


Winterbourne, Bristol. 

Single storey side/rear extension and front porch 
 - architectural design drawings, planning permission submission, structural engineering calculations / steel reports & building regulations submission / approval.

This extension provided a large open-plan dining/lounge area in the rear element of the extension, with a pitched/vaulted ceiling incorporating large roof windows resulting in a bright and airy living space. The side extension remained as a garage with the roof extending forward and wrapping around the front of the house to give an attractive porch/canopy over the garage and front door. The remaining space between the garage & lounge was well utilised as a shower/wet room. Overall, the ground floor was more than doubled in size.
 

 


Winterbourne, Bristol. 

Single storey side/rear extension and front porch 
 - architectural design drawings, planning permission submission, structural engineering calculations / steel reports & building regulations submission / approval.


Merged from several photographs, hence slightly distorted, this 180° view shows the luxurious lounge/diner, looking towards the former rear wall of the house. The former kitchen window and rear door have become openings. More commonly in rear extensions, the rear wall of the house is removed completely, supported by a steel beam. The high ceiling gives a very grand feel and roof windows result in a light and open living space.
 

 


Winterbourne, Bristol. 

Single storey side/rear extension and front porch 
 - architectural design drawings, planning permission submission, structural engineering calculations / steel reports & building regulations submission / approval.


The image on the left shows the open feel of the high vaulted/pitched ceiling. The front of the house shows how the extension wraps around the side and front, to form the canopy over the garage door and front door… resulting in an attractive, and practical, addition to this greatly extended home.
 

 


Chepstow, Monmouthshire.

Garage conversion, rear & side extension, replacement kitchen -   - architectural design drawings, planning permission submission and structural engineering calculations / steel reports.

By converting the existing garage and designing a side extension to blend with it, the resulting extension doubled the ground floor space.

The stone-floored kitchen, with contrasting gloss-white doors and beautiful black granite work surfaces is simply stunning! The garage and side extension has become a luxurious space, with a bedroom and ensuite to rival most 5* hotels. Incorporated into the side extension is a cloakroom, as elegant as the ensuite. The folding/sliding doors opening onto the re-landscaped garden and pond complete this first-class extension.

 

 


Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

Two-storey over garage extension - architectural design drawings, planning permission submission, structural engineering calculations / steel reports & building regulations submission/approval.

The existing & proposed elevation drawings show the accuracy of the designs and the importance of in-keeping with the existing house.

By building over the existing garage, and also widening the house to utilise the side path, this very attractive extension has produced a beautiful home.

The large gable with render & timber provide a stunning façade to this large executive home blending seamlessly into the exiting house. The additions were a greatly extended kitchen/diner to the ground floor and an extravagantly spacious new master bedroom with dressing room, walk-in wardrobes and luxurious his ‘n’ her ensuite.

The first floor area has increased from 61 sq.m to 101 sq.m !

 

 


Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

Garage conversion & two-storey over-garage extension  - architectural design drawings, planning permission submission, structural engineering calculations / steel reports & building regulations submission / approval.

Unlike most attached garages, this home benefited from a significant space between the house and the garage. This enabled a very wide extension, with clear benefits of additional space at both ground & first floor. The garage has been partly converted into a useful and valuable study. At first floor, a large master was created, with impressive ensuite and much sort-after walk-in wardrobe! The remaining first floor was completely re-designed to make more efficient use of space and to provide a more luxurious family bathroom.
