- con darken the rooms in middle of the house because deepening footprint (consider adding enough glazing to bring sufficient light in)
Double height extension at rear
+ allows to add extra room or bathroom on top of rear extension
+ economies of scale (add more rooms withpout doubling cost)
- planning might be more difficult to obtain
