Single Storey Extension Drawings: Where to Start?

Updated: Jan 19, 2023

Drawing up plans for a single-storey extension can be daunting, but it doesn't have to be. With the right information, we can create detailed drawings that will help bring your project to life. Here's what you need to know about single-storey extension drawings.

Analyse Your Site Conditions

Once we have drawn your existing plans and checked any structural information, the next stage is to analyse your site conditions. We can look around and assess the land. Consider things like: the slope of the land, if there’s a garden, if there are trees or power lines in the way, previous rights-of-way or other restrictions that could impact construction. All these factors will help inform how you we your single storey extension.

Make an Accurate Plan of Your Existing Property

We start by making an accurate drawing plan of your existing property. We take note of the current dimensions and features like doors, windows and other fixtures. The more accurate, the better the outcome when we start designing your extension.

Plan the Layout of Your Extension

After we have an understanding of your land and any potential restrictions, it's time to plan the layout of your single storey extension. We make sure your drawings are precisely detailed so that your builder has all the necessary information for installing any fixtures and fittings.

Prepare Detailed Drawings To Scale

When preparing your single storey extension drawings, it’s essential to ensure everything is drawn out to scale. This means drawing the walls, windows, doors and other features - such as a boiler flue - at full size. This way we will be able to accurately determine and note down where these features should go in your actual space.
