Home and Life Improvements

Home improvements quite often go hand in hand with life improvements, at CK Architectural Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire we work with you throughout the design process advising you on the options available and helping you make the right decisions. CK Architectural Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire offer you free advice and a free quotation, so you can take the time needed before you take the plunge. Our dedicated team of professionals will take your project design through the planning and the building regulations needed. The service we offer does not end at approved plans, we can provide help and advice throughout the building process and offer a range of other services to make everything as easy as possible for you.

Extension Plans

Extensions are the typical way to create space at the side or rear of your property with a single or double storey extension. Extending your home is a good option when you are happy with the location and want to improve your space and living arrangements.

Single Storey Extensions can extend your kitchen to a nice open plan social space or you may want to choose a glass extension for the sun and natural lighting or garden room effect.

Double Storey Extensions for that extra bedroom and more living space below. Everything your architectural designer does is done to get the best possible outcome for you, with consideration of planning approval and building regulations throughout the process so that plans can be approved. We understand that these are not just drawings, they are a detailed illustration of what you want to achieve within your budget and time scale.

Loft Conversions or Dormer Roof Extensions

Loft conversions are quite often a hidden gem within the home, utilising the roof space for habitable rooms can be a great way to gain an additional space.

We design with you to get the most out of the roof space with as little impact to the floor below as possible.

The Structural elements required, and building regulations are all considered. Read our detailed guide for Converting Your Roof, for all you need to know about drawing, plans, planning and the building regulations.

Barn Conversions

Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire has some of the country‚Äôs most beautiful landscapes with disused farm houses/ buildings that can provide the shell for enigmatic and captivating buildings  that are ready to be converted.  Although the government has made converting these buildings into homes easier there are still many hurdles which can prevent permission.  If you are one of the lucky ones that has a barn or an outbuilding available read our online guide and book a consultation, let CK Architectural Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire help you make the building into something special.

Self and New Build

If you are thinking about building your own home (self-build / new build) for the first time, or even if you are a seasoned developer, then we have the skills, knowledge and expertise you need. We design every detail for your project alongside you, so when you move into your house it really is your home. We will give free advice before getting into expensive fees, email us your site address and details. For a small fee we will make the necessary enquiries to your local planning authority and produce a comprehensive feasibility report.


Once we have established that your desired new home can be obtained, the project design can begin. We will sit with you and develop a project brief to discover exactly what you will need to get the best living standard from your site and budget. We present you with various design options based around your brief and discuss all of options available to you. We will then complete the design with you and from there we can take it through the planning process, building regulations and even project manage the build for you if required. Our designs can be produced in rendered 3D and even as a walkthrough of your designed home before you make your final decisions. 


You may prefer modern contemporary designs, traditional or barn styles, but whatever your preference we will create the design to suit you. At CK Architectural our staff are constantly updating their knowledge of construction methods to ensure the finish is to the highest standards and the house runs economically. We have an excellent knowledge of sustainable living, eco-friendly, renewable energy, fuel conservation, rainwater harvesting, solar power storage, ground source heating, etc, to provide you with all the options before making your decision. We will provide the things you know you want and advise on other options and ideas to bring everything together as your perfect home.
