Types of Refurbishments & House Extensions in Christchurch

There are many ways that domestic and commercial clients in Christchurch can upgrade their properties, from house refurbishments to new house extensions. The team at Anthony Carpentry and Building Services are experienced in creating and restoring old or dilapidated interiors and exteriors, carried out by fully-trained builders, bathroom fitters, carpenters and kitchen fitters.


House Extensions


We provide free quotes and consultations for a wide-range of house extensions at your Christchurch property. Our designers and builders help clients to develop their dream concepts, based on the type of venue and their maximum budget. We arrange a site visit to fully assess the available space. Here we check for any obstacles to work around, plus health and safety hazards to resolve.


The different types of house extensions which our builders are proficient at constructing include the following:


  • Rear Extensions – If you plan to add a new bedroom or living area to your Christchurch property, rear house extensions are ideal because of their south-facing views. This also utilises larger or unused garden space
  • Side Extensions – Our builders can add side extensions to preserve your garden. These are popular ways for bathroom fitters to install an extra bathroom. Kitchen fitters can expand your existing room as part of house refurbishments too
  • Single Storey Extensions – These types of house extensions are great for adding another bedroom, which can increase your property resale price by 20%
  • Two-Storey Extensions – Christchurch clients can add more space for living and dining areas, carried out by our team of builders and kitchen fitters. This is a perfect option to make homes feel spacious for growing families
  • Garage Extensions – We can add off-road parking to make your property more appealing to potential buyers. These house extensions are common for side or rear extensions, which have the potential to be converted by builders, kitchen fitters or bathroom fitters for future house refurbishments


Loft Conversions




A dormer adds more natural daylight, head room and floor space to Christchurch properties with pitched roofs. These house refurbishments make use of unused lofts, primarily used as storage or junk rooms. Builders and bathroom fitters transform smaller attics into toilets, showers or wet rooms. These house refurbishments don’t usually require planning permission from the local authorities.


Hip to Gable


Builders integrate ‘hipped’ or sloped loft conversions into the shape of the roof. This maintains a traditional appearance for Christchurch clients, in comparison to dormers which are constructed with a new flat roof. Hip to gable house refurbishments can be designed for bedrooms with en suites installed by our bathroom fitters, depending in the size.




Large house refurbishments are like house extensions because they add another full floor to your Christchurch property. The angle of the roof is typically altered to a 72° angle and the loft extends to the length of the building. Our builders manage planning permits which need to be submitted to the council for bigger-scale house refurbishments and extensions.
