We needed an Architect for a rear extension to our house in Allestree. Stuart provided excellent ideas and designs, and with his assistance, planning permission has been promptly permitted. Top job from a friendly & professional chap.

We were recommended Stuart's architectural services by friends as he had designed their house and it worked brilliantly. We hoped he could do the same for us.He really listened, gave great advice and provided two design solutions that included internal changes, a single-storey extension and a loft conversion. We were so happy with them. He obtained our planning permission and our builder was then able to use the drawings to price more accurately.We would thoroughly recommend Stuart to anyone thinking of improving their home.Mr & Mrs Robinson, Derbyshire

We were keen to explore the options of an loft conversion and a local magazines article recommended Extended Ideas' architectural services.At first, Stuart from Extended Ideas listened to our lifestyle needs: more office space, more bedrooms, minimum disruption to the first floor and to blend in with the original externally. We wanted to explore a design without roof dormers.He explored the loft space, the best location for the new staircase and discussed possibilities with us. We saw 3D plans and visuals of two design options, which really helped us feel we were considering all the possibilities.The designs were so original, we discovered that builders also found the visuals beneficial when providing quotes and as keen to be part of something unique.Stuart, submitted our chosen design to the council and we have just received the great news that planning approval has come through much earlier than expected so we can get to work!We have found that what Extended Ideas does is Invaluable. Stuart clearly knows his stuff we would recommend him ten times over if anyone wants any work done on their house

We have been in our newly renovated living kitchen and garage conversion for nearly 4-months now and I am really pleased with how it has turned out.Stuart provided 3D plans and visuals of two different design options. One with an extension and the other with a garage conversion. What this helped within my mind was cementing the decision not to extend.Most people just naturally think I need more space, I'll extend. This would have been the worst thing, with hindsight, we could have done. If we have had done it blind-sighted and extended. We would have ended up with less garden space and it would all still have been incomplete. Making better use of your existing space is what it's all about and saves money along the way.Our home renovation fell within budget and we're so happy with the outcome.

For several years we have been trying to envisage the perfect design for our home renovation, to provide us with the perfect living kitchen and extension. So many different ideas confused us, and nothing was ever perfect.We searched  the internet to see if there was help out there. We came across an  architectural design service and thought, we'll give it a go.  Stuart gave great professional advice, was  friendly, and put us at ease. He clearly understood exactly what we needed, and we couldn't wait to see what his input would provide.The designs show 2D and 3D plans and internal and external visuals that we could have never envisage. This meant we could proceed with our project.Now it's complete, we can honestly say that Stuart's involvement made our dream home possible and can't thank him enough.
