Elmwood Extension Modern sunroom Cullybackey Ballymena County Antrim

Modern Sunroom Extension to semi detached house

The Elmwood extension; this modest, but contemporary timber clad sunroom, was was designed with simplicity of space and materials to provide a rear extension to a semi-detached house, to use as living accommodation and also a better connection to the rear landscaped garden of the house.

With a tight budget and a young family to think on our clients brief was simple; a contemporary sunroom to the rear of their semi-detached house, which would also give them an open plan living style to rear of the house, along with easy access to their landscaped garden.

Our solution was simple.
Keeping the roof height and overall size limited and as per permitted development regulations we bypassed requiring a planning application.

Roof: Single ply membrane with 400mm insulation
Walls: 300mm block work with full fill platinum bead insulation with Western cedar vertical timber cladding.
Windows/doors: Black uPVC sliding doors with full pane 16mm argon filled double glazed windows
