Kitchen extension carried out in Colepits Wood Road, London, SE9. Eltham Heights.
Stage 1: House extension foundations and concrete floor over site
The pictures above show the demolition stages through to the preparation of the over site/ concrete floor slab. First of all we cleared the area and excavated to a depth of 1.2 meters for the foundations. Once the foundations were poured, we built up to damp proof course (DPC) level. We then laid hard core to the area and compact it with heavy machinery. This was then blinded with 50mm of sand.
Stage 2: House extension floor construction and brick work to DPC.
We laid a Damp Proof Membrane (DPM) down and lapped this onto the DPC course. We then laid 85mm of Celotec insulation over the floor and 35mm up the walls. The floor was then ready for concreting.
Stage 3: House extension cavity walls and pitching the roof
We built 2 skins of 100mm Thermalite blockwork/block walls up off the DPC with 70mm of insulation clipped in between. All lintels and cavity closers were installed. We pitched the roof and installed Velux windows.
Stage 4: House extension roof tiling, facias and soffits and making good to the disturbed areas of the patio.
The roof was felt and battened ready for tiling. All ventilation UPVC sofits and facias were installed, along with the guttering. The roof was then ready for tiling and installing the lead flashings.
Stage 5: Insulation, structural openings and stud walls to the house extension.
Once the new extension was watertight, we were able to carry out all structural openings from the extension to the main house. We carefully shored up the walls ready for the removal of the brickwork. The new concrete padstones were installed and the steels were put in place. The timber stud frames were then installed ready for insulation.
Stage 6: Insulation and scratch coat rendering
The stud walls were insulated with a Rockwall acoustic insulation. The ceiling to the extension was insulated with 100mm of Celotec in between the joists and 50mm of insulation across the ceiling joist left ready for first fix electrics and plumbing.
Stage 7: Plasterboarding and plastering.
Once the extension has had all of its electrics and plumbing installed it was ready to be plasterboarded. We always use the thicker board of 12.5mm. These boards were screwed and not nailed to provide a stronger fixing and present the plaster from popping. Once the walls and ceilings were boarded, we drilled holes in the ceilings and walls to bring the lighting cables through. The same goes with the stud walls for the plug sockets. The walls and ceilings were then ready for plastering.
Stage 8: Decoration and the fitting of a Kitchen.
The walls were lightly sanded to take off any shiny patches, as paint won’t adhere properly to shiny areas. The walls and ceilings had 3 coats of emulsion paint and we applied a primer, 2 layers of undercoat and a finish coat to the timber.
Stage 9: Snagging
Once the kitchen was installed, everything was checked to make sure it was working properly. We then carried out any final snagging with the client before handing the works over as completed.
Stage 10: Completed
A completion certificate, NIC EIC And a the GAS SAFE Certificates were issued to the client. Another superb job competed on time and on budget by London and Kent Construction Ltd!
Rear extension in Crown Woods Road, Eltham Heights SE9
A house extension on a detached property in North Park Eltham SE9 london
This is a nice detached property in Eltham South East London SE9 on a good-sized plot, but with small rooms.
We extended the living room and dining room into the garden to double their size, extending them from 4 meters x 5 meters to 8 meters by 5 meters.
We also added a conservatory to the back of the living room. This house extension was carried out under full planning permission. There were also some major structural alterations carried out to the rear bay; bays on houses are normally the weak point for moving or subsiding and can sometimes need underpinning.
Finished House Extension
Extension to a 1930s semi-detached built house in Eltham Heights SE9 with an attached garage.
This house extension gained our customers a bedroom with an en suite bathroom above the garage.
We demolished the garage and erected a garage with the correct size footings to take a second/double storey extension.
Part way through build
We fitted all structural steel work ready for the new concrete block extension to be built on top.
After building the second story to the extension, it was time to pitch the roof so that all internal knock-through and structural alterations to the main house could be completed.
The roof was tiled with Redland concrete plain tiles.
All works conducted were sympathetic with the property’s original Tudor style. Once these works were completed, you could not tell it was a house extension as all of the finishes blended in beautifully.

We demolished the conservatory and erected a double story side extension
The customers gained a bedroom with an en suite bathroom and a large living room of 10 meters by 4.5 meters.
Just like the project above, once these works were completed you, could not tell it was a house extension as all of the finishes blended in beautifully.
