A new, single storey timber frame extension kit which can be assembled in a day has been released by Pasquill, the UK’s leading provider of timber roof trusses and engineered solutions.
The single-story structure will comprise a flat roof and two walls, as well as bi-fold doors from an external supplier to help bring the outdoors in.
Manufactured from aesthetically pleasing and sustainable timber, the extensions will have a small carbon footprint without compromising the structure’s performance or functionality.
Disruption to the homeowner is also minimal, thanks to a one load delivery and minimal groundworks, as the extension does not require deep foundations.
Pasquill believe the timber frame extensions will appeal to anyone looking to improve their home that may have previously been put off due the cost or legal restrictions.
However, a relaxation in planning via Permitted Development will allow the extension of a house without applying for full planning permission, providing the structure is single storey and up to half the width of the original house.
Chris Powell, Sales Director, at Pasquill, said: “A lot of talented people at Pasquill have worked very hard to bring this product to market, and I think the result is a brilliant, sustainable solution that will tick a lot of boxes for people.
“There’s certainly been a rise in demand for this type of home improvement too, particularly since lockdown, as people simply want more space and to work towards the homes of their dreams. This is a comparatively affordable way help them achieve this.”
