Weybridge Close, Appleton

The client brief on this project was about enlarging the kitchen / dining space at the rear of the property to create space for children and grown-ups to occupy the space at the same time and with an improved connection to the garden. A single storey conservatory was replaced with a 7m x 3.5m extension with bifold doors on the rear and side elevations capitalising on the wrap-around nature of the garden.

“We approached John Wood for our home extension and we are very glad we did, he offered a fantastic service. He had great ideas for our project, managed expectations impeccably throughout the process and was very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend and use him again for any future projects.” Client testimonial, posted at google.co.uk
