This is probably a ‘how long is a piece of string?’ question but I was wondering if anyone has done similar and could give me a ball park. We have struggled a bit with how to make our barn house work best and our kitchen living is currently a long room with one end under ground (we are on a hill) facing the front of the house / road. We didn’t realise really how much height difference between the house and the old porcherie (stone lean to extension) on the garden side so our original plans for breaking through to have access can’t work. We’ve recently realised that there is one place we can get a door through (once we redo the stairs!) which would give us much more diret access to the garden and bring more light through and give me the chance to get the kitchen out of the living / dining. I can get a long galley kitchen (it is around 5m) in but I’d LOVE to extend it out to make a big square kitchen so say 2m or 3m along the 5m wall. We wouldn’t need anyone to do the kitchen fitting etc just the extension (we could do it ourselves but we have SO much to do I think it would be worth exploring how much this would cost.). If anyone has done a similar size extension I’d love to hear. The walls are solid stone and there is a terrace outside around where we’d put the wall out to so already flat.
Any thoughts much appreciated! On the upside, I can add the galley kitchen and extend later so it isn’t a one or another situation.
