Are you wanting to sell you house and move to your dream home? Why not let Albyn Architects create your dream home, by extending your existing house, to your exact requirements for a fraction of the cost.

This is what happened with this project, we met a client looking to sell his house which had been on the market for some time, with little interest. So, he contacted Albyn Architects to look into the possibility of extending.

Project Brief

  • Create Kitchen/Dining/Family space to rear
  • Provide a large Master Bedroom suite, with Dressing Room and En-suite.
  • Provide a min. of 3 Bedrooms.

Once we had agreed the design and layout, we obtained a cost estimation for the building work. Although this cost was based on initial drawings (Feasibility stage) the estimated cost matched the final build cost.


  • Following completion of the Feasibility Study, we obtained the planning and building warrant approvals from the council.
  • Arranged competitive tender, and appointed the chosen builder on a fixed price contract.
  • Carried out site inspections, liaising with the client, builder and council during the construction stage.

The extension was completed in November 2018, with a build duration of 24 weeks. The client was delighted with the end result and has recommend our services, which has led onto Albyn Architects picking up 2 new projects.
