Exploring the Charm of Central Avenue in Bangor! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Updated: May 12

Revealing one of my projects just completed on site and wow, we think it's fantastic!


What a difference this extension has made to Jac's home. I was very pleased seeing the changes and my drawings turned into reality. I am even more delighted receiving another 5 star review.


"Glenn did the drawings for our kitchen extension and redesign of our downstairs layout, which we have just completed. We are delighted with the end result. Every detail has been thought about and it makes such a difference to how we use the space. He also did all the admin behind submitting the drawings to planning etc which was such a help. I would highly recommend" Jac ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Bright and spacious with glazed doors and sidelights to access the garden.

By taking down walls, extending and utilising the existing yard the narrow kitchen is no more. Bring in open-plan-living and the new kitchen, dining, family room is now flooded with daylight and such a delightful room to enjoy.

A sloped ceiling provided with three Velux rooflights positioned over the kitchen to provide a feeling of space while also flooding the kitchen with daylight.

It was great working with Jac on her extension and what a superb job she did designing the kitchen, choosing the finishes including the lighting, flooring and seating. We are both so pleased with the end result ❤️

Jac said that they all love the space and that it gives them pleasure coming home and spending time here. I just love Jac's mustard seating, sage green kitchen, flooring and lighting. ❤️

It really has the wow factor and I hope you love it as much as we do ❤️

Here's a summary of what Jac wished for:

  • Provide a modern open-plan Kitchen / Family / Dining area.

  • To utilise the existing narrow and dark yard.

  • Incorporate lots of daylight.

  • Improve views and access to rear garden.

  • Provide a separate downstairs utility room.

  • Provide a downstairs wc, wash hand basin and shower room.

  • Remove existing chimney breast in the Sitting Room and above.

  • Install a hideaway pocket door in the living room.

Finally, I'm guessing you were thinking, what did it look like before? Well here it is, a long narrow kitchen and just outside is the side yard. The wall on the right-hand-side was removed, steel beams inserted and the room extended into the yard.


Hope you love the changes as much as we do. Such a difference an extension / alterations can make to a home. If you would like to work with me and improve your home please feel free to get in touch. It would be my pleasure to assist. Glenn 😊
