This property in Cobham was originally built in 1956 and underwent an extensive refurbishment as well as a front, rear and side extensions. The transformation is unrecognisable. See ‘before & after’ for photos.

Claire Totman Designs offered the full design and build package as well as project managing the build.

  1. Hi Claire,
    I hope you don’t mind me contacting you. I caught, by accident (as is often the way on Instagram!) your transformation of the 1956 property in Cobham and was very impressed by the remodelled front elevation. My question is, do you need planning permission to bring the garage front beyond the main front wall of the house or does the ‘porch’ count as the front wall? I live in the North West of England and we’re considering a garage re-build and would like to extend forward. Again, I hope you don’t mind me asking. Best regards, Shirley.

    1. Hi Shirley, you would have to ask your local planning department. This project was full planning as it was a rear double storey, front double and side single storey extension. Of course I don’t know anything about your project but bringing a garage forward a few feet, if this is the only the only work you’re planning, it wouldn’t be worth it as you wouldn’t be gaining much to justify the cost of it?
