Semi-Detached House Extensions & Renovations
Reasons to renovate your Semi
You may be looking to achieve more bedrooms for your growing family, a larger kitchen, updated bathrooms, storage space, a butler’s pantry, a parents’ retreat, or to achieve a sense of spaciousness.
Your goals may also include sustainability, raked or vaulted ceilings, a featured staircase, a light airy feel, making full use of available views, and more.
