    two storey extension


    I have a 3 x 4 m conservatory with three full brick walls and a dwarf wall across the front (3m). My house is built on a raft, is it possible to add a raft to current building and then convert it too a a two storey to match the back of the house.

    "The best answer I can give is that you should consult your architect and structural engineer."

    It can be done but you would need an RSJ beam put in and built up from that. You would need a structural engineer to do the calculations for it. I would say to build the new first floor walls from timber frames to keep the weight down on the raft."

    "Yes that would be possible subject to local planning rules and building control"
