Home improvements

Home improvements cover just about everything and anything, but these are some of the most popular services we have to offer.

Home designs to improve your living

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.

We provide comprehensive advice before any commitment

Building extensions

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.

Building a new home

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.

Loft & Garage Conversions

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 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.

Garage conversions in much the same way are accessible to many properties too, also using Permitted Development Rights, negating planning permission.

Barn Conversions

Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire have some of the country’s 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 that 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.

From basic design to full project management,  you can tailor your service to you

Highly recommend CK Architectural. Chris and his team did a great job gaining planning permission for a new build and renovation of an existing property. We hit some dead ends with the planning officer but Chris found different ways of getting around the problems without going over budget.

For someone far removed from the building / planning industries the thought of where to start when thinking of a big extension project to my house (two story to the side and wrap around of semi-detached 3 bed) was a little daunting at first. Luckily, after obtaining a competitive quote, I enlisted the services of CK Architectural and have been very impressed with not only the service received but the ease at which they have made the whole process. After listening to my thoughts and the reasons for needing the extension work doing, the architect came up with a great design that encompassed everything that was needed. Even when I changed my mind over a couple of aspects, Donna, Chris and the team were quick to administer any alterations. Every visit to the house for measurements / planning etc has happened without a hitch with all members of the team we've encountered being punctual and professional at all times. The best thing has been by far the ease at which CK have made of getting all council and local authority sign off for the project. All I have needed to do is pay the fees at the required time, no stress involved and all went through seamlessly. I'm now at the stage where I have the drawings to hand and have submitted them to builders to obtain quotes. Importantly, the feedback so far from the builders indicates the project to be within the budget specifications I explained to CK during the first consultation. Very happy customer 🙂 Carl.

Excellent Service and prompt!! I have taken CK's service twice. Chris and his team is very helpful and most importantly have enough patience to accommodate my frequently changing mind set. I would happily recommend any one to CK Architectural and wish them all the best.
