Sometimes called a side return extension, this is the most common kitchen extension in London and the South West of London. A side return generally involves building out 1.25m to the side of the property and finishing flush at the back of the main part of the house. Clients can then choose to have either a pitched or flat roof over the extended section.
Regulations often mean pitched roofs have to pitch down to 2.1m on the boundary wall.
The main styles of side extensions include:
- Flat roof
- Pitched roof
