It’s been an interesting few weeks watching my near neighbours preparing to have their property extended. They bought the house expressly because it has direct access to a farmer’s field and bridleway with acres of walks and they have a lovely big dog. They also bought with a view to extending but expected to get going a couple of years earlier, whilst their children were still teenagers . . . . They’re adults now and very likely to fly the nest at some time. However, it doesn’t alter the fact that their kitchen & utility areas were very meanly proportioned. So builders and building inspector visits have gone apace – the neighbour is busily preparing the ground works himself as he’s a civil engineer and very likely going to make his prescence known. The plans sounded wonderful, spacious cabinets with an island and bank of ovens, microwaves, multi fuel stove with wok etc. etc. The planning has been exceptional and I can’t wait to see the result having heard much about it – over the fence of course!
