Side Return Extension
In the UK, Victorian houses follow a wide range of architectural styles, and vary in period features. Among the most popular floor plans are the terraced properties that are sometimes known as villas. These Victorian properties have a floor plan that leaves a largely wasted space along one side of the rear part of the property. This area of garden has become increasingly popularwith people looking to increase the size of their kitchen, this type of extension is known as a side return.
The basic process of a side return extension involves building a wall along the boundary (which will then become the party wall) the removal of the existing load baring side-wall. The structural support of the above floors is done with a steel joist or a system of multiple joists. The new roof design can now be fitted to encapsulate the freshly created space. Side return roofs usually have some form of glass fitted to allow natural light in for a more spacious feel.
Usually, this is done with Velux windows, although other more creative methods can be stipulated. Once the structural alterations have been carried out the interior of the side return may be fitted out toa specification of your choice.

A back extension to a property involves the same methods of construction as a side return, but naturally affects the back of the property instead. Extensions to the back offer a wide scope for personalization, with pitched or flat roof options, Velux windows, roof lanterns, flat glass or almost anything else you can think of.
The basic process starts with the building of what will become the back and side walls for the new room. The existing back wall is then removed and the upper floors are supported on steel joists. A roof between the existing house and new brickwork is then built, forming the structure of the newly created room.
