Designing and Planning

Among the different stages of extending your house, the first step is the designing. The next step is to know can you extend your house without planning permission. The answer is you cannot. You need to get approval from the local authorities before you can start with the extension process. You need to establish the purpose of extending your house if you do not want to over think or overspend on the project.

Whether you want an extra bedroom for children, a new home office or just a larger living area to spend quality time with your family, you need to know if you have enough space to get an extension.

The next thing to decide is what part of the house you want to extend. You might consider extending the front of your house or extending the back of your house if you have enough space.

Otherwise, you can think of converting single storey house into double storey. It is a great way to retain your garden or backyard space. But, remember that the cost of adding a second storey to a house is more than extending the house at the back or front.

Cost of Extension

The cost of extending your house and the demolition work needed will be an important thing to consider when thinking about an extension.

If you are extending the front of your house or extending the back of your house, you will need to hire carpenters, painters, plasterboard experts, electricians, plumbers and tillers depending on the number of rooms that might be affected by the extension.

If you are extending the house upwards, you might also have to hire a roofing contractor that will cost you much more. It is essential to choose a builder with experience in extension projects and that too within a similar budget as yours.
