“We contacted Chris to seek his guidance and advice on updating our traditional terraced house.  The house had a through lounge/dining area with a long, dark kitchen which had a small breakfast room extension.  Chris drew up plans for a side extension giving us the opportunity to relocate the kitchen into the dining area which then created an open plan space to incorporate a dining table, TV snug / play area for the children.  There is also a separate room for WC and utilities (washing machine and tumble dryer).  


Chris liaised directly with Fylde Borough Council on our behalf to seek the necessary planning permission and also put us in contact with Carl Woods, a St Anne’s based builder.  The work was carried out in 2 stages: the first stage was removing chimney breasts and reverting the open plan area back into two rooms.  The second stage was the extension and reconfiguration of the kitchen which took 12 weeks.  It has completely transformed how we live as a family and Chris’s plans have created a beautiful, bright open plan space.  It has completely exceeded out expectations, especially the light we now have flooding into the house.  We cannot thank Chris and Carl enough and are so glad we went ahead with the work”.

I’ve worked with Chris from Homeplan Designs for a few years now.
His work is amazing and we always achieve the best outcome for our customers.
Chris is very thorough and has great inspiration and enthusiasm. His design work is always spot on.
I would recommend him to any potential client looking at home designed extensions.

A message from a client

Hi Chris,

It seems a lifetime ago that you came to see us about the extension we wanted to be built. I just wanted to let you know how the build is coming on, obviously affected by Covid 19, but we are entering the last stages of work.

I wanted to thank you first for the plans, which have transferred from paper to the real thing perfectly, and looks incredible. But secondly I want to thank you for recommending Mike Adams to us. The way he talked about the project when he first came over, I knew he would be the person we would be asking to do it, he had such a positive demeanour, and throughout the build, I have felt as if he cared about the quality and the final outcome as much as I did. I can’t recommend him enough, and the guys he has working for and with him. He has had a tough time throughout the pandemic, but has always managed to keep positive, and I will miss him being around when it is finally finished.

I will send some pictures over when the build is complete. The bifold doors cut into the corner of the room are so different, and a brilliant focal point for the room. So thank you again, for brilliant plans, and finding us the perfect builder. We are so pleased with his work, he is starting some building work for my parents next week too.

Thanks and regards

We decided to have our bungalow modified so contacted Chris at Homeplan Designs.

We’ve never needed or used and architect before and didn’t really know where to start on the design.

Chris who is a very pleasant and approachable man was very knowledgeable and informative. He came up with ideas that we had never thought of and was always available to answer any of our questions.

He sent easy to read designs, and and also provided 3D images of the building so that we had an idea of what the finished article would look like.

We would definitely recommend Chris to anyone needing a good architect. –
