Home extension design guide from Reading Borough Council

Home extension design tip:-

Roof pitch and design

It is advisable to maintain the original pitch (angle) of the roof and keep to the general roof design (gable end or hipped) in any extension. By retaining the same roof pitch as the original, it is likely that this will ensure that the size and proportion of the extension in are related to the original building.

Window layout and proportions.

Thoughtless placing of a new window can spoil the balance of an elevation. Similarly, Window proportions which are alien to the original will emphasise the impression that the alterations have not been sensitively considered.
