A home extension is a fantastic way of increasing the space you have at your property without going through the hassle and expense of moving house. You can tailor the room to exactly how you use it and a well-designed Home extension could also add value to your property.
How long does it take an architect to design an extension?
When you’re considering extending your home it is worth talking to the experts. A good builder with lots of experience extending all sorts of properties will be able to help you plan your extension and advise you on the costs involved. They will know the local market and what extended homes in your area have sold for so they can help you keep your budget in line.
Another consideration is whether or not your home will be livable during the construction of your extension. The water may be turned off, there will be builders moving materials and dust around and you’ll probably need to keep your children and pets out of the building until it’s completed. If this is the case, you’ll need to think about what work can be done in the garden and how your family will cope with living without a kitchen or spare bedroom for a few months.
Other reasons people choose to extend their home include creating a utility room or office space. It’s becoming more common to work from home and having a dedicated space to do that in can make for a better work life balance. Adding more windows is another popular option as it makes rooms feel lighter and more open.
