We could do with a bit more living space/teen hangout.
Currently have a sitting room, large kitchen/diner and a utility room downstairs.
Option one is to extend across the back of the house, full width. We'd get a second sitting room overlooking the garden with a small loo. Seeing as we don't have a downstairs loo then I guess that's a bonus, though lack of loo doesn't bother me too much. We'd have a sofa, TV in it. Downside is that I need space for dd's drum kit (electric kit) so that would be part of the house but she can turn the volumne down I guess. Current kitchen/diner would become an internal room which I'm not sure I'm keen on.
Option two is to get a really good quality garden office. Properly insulated, plastered, under floor heating, electricity. Would be a really cool space for dd and her friends. Drum kit would be well out the way. I'm guessing it would be quite a bit cheaper than an extension and less hassle. Just concerned it wouldn't be used as much???
