Looking for a home extension or an outbuilding?

I have always loved the beautiful home extensions and oak constructions

of our Belgian company LLOYD HAMILTON.

Whether you want to choose for a home extension or you would love to have a charming outbuilding in your garden, you will love these Lloyd Hamilton constructions.

I have posted here some of my favorites.


I love how this company integrates their home extensions. They do make an effort to choose the right building materials required to extend your home in a way that it is not overwhelming, so that the house don’t loose its characteristics and authenticity. Proportions are very important!

11 Repeat of the roof slates.

9 Carefully chosen roof tiles matching the color of the existing roof.

2A painted home extension here.


Love the inside of these constructions!



15 This is one of my favorites! A combination of a brick façade with oak constructed window frames and doors.

And what do you think of these oak constructions?

17 Dreaming of a place to barbecue this summer?

16 Or are you dreaming of a wonderful oak constructed pool house?

20 Or do you need a new car park?

19 Very Belgian-styled : brick façade, wooden doors, Belgian bluestone.

22 Don’t you admit that the inside of these oak constructions looks just fabulous?

21 The most important characteristic of these constructions is the use of wooden beams.

14 A detail of the earlier showed cottage styled home extension! How charming is this!

    Anything that features Belgian bluestone gets my vote. Love the inside and outside of the painted extension. I'm most impressed how the extensions flow seamlessly with the homes, something a lot of people don't always give a lot of consideration to.

    I would be thrilled with any of these and agree with AO – just love Belgian bluestone and the painted extension!!

    Hello dearest Greet,
    Oh my, these people know how to build on extensions the right way. Even the garages and outbuildings are real works of architecture. Very beautiful!
    Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.
    Hugs, Cindy

    Very nicely done. Agreed, its all about character, good materials and symmetry. I would rather a small but well done intelligently home with a lot of integrity and character than a huge home lacking in any or all of these elements. Beautiful images above! Enjoyed each and every one of these pictures. Thanks!

    I have always liked extensions when done properly and in keeping with the integrity of the home….you have done an outstanding job. They often become favorite rooms of the house, cant figure out why but our first house had a small conservatory/extension and we LIVED there then my best friend just did a huge room as an extension and she said thats where they spend all their time! Beautiful examples above….love and appreciate all the materials used. Please visit my newish blog, about the building of our own home and my passion for decor/design,would love you to stop by! PS. I am your newest follower:)

    Found your blog, its so pretty. I really like Belgian style, we were in Belgium about a year ago for a conference and we were invited to someones house for a reception, his wife is a well known decorator and it was so incredible, lots of washed woods and neutrals but very rich. I love how you captured the style above. Lovely.

    Hi Greet,
    I found your blog recently when I was searching the internet for Belgian interiors. My husband and I were in Bruges several years ago, and absolutely fell in love with the city. I'm so happy to be following your blog. It's beautiful, and it's a little piece of Belgium for me to revisit 🙂 If you've always dreamed of visiting the Midwestern United States, stop by my blog 🙂

    If you are considering extending your home soon, then chances are that you will need the services of a home extensions architect. The home extension architect is one of the emerging specialists in architecture, alongside the likes of the environmental architect, the residential architect and so on.
