Well designed households enhance living standards – and, needless to say, the value of your home. If your outgrowing your home, it going to be worthwhile spending some time, and maybe a little money exporing all option available to you. Countless empowered extensions evolve as a result of a site’s attributes: its strengths and its limits, and the planning system.
The importance of bringing in a good, competent builder as quickly as possible shouldn’t be overstated. A good developer will maximise space, commonly developing ideas you couldn’t even imagine, whilst at the same time bringing your own ideas to life whilst working within your budget. They can also drive the project through development, minimising compromise so you end up as close as possible to your goal, adding space and that elusive ‘wow’ factor, too.

Single Storey House Extensions
Extending your house with a single storey extension, rather than moving is often a more economic option when your family is outgrowing its property, not to mention satisfactory, in that any additional space can be fashioned exactly how you need it. A new extension is a sensible investment that will add to the value of your house and provide the additional internal space needed helping you to make the most efficient use of your accommodation.
Double Storey Extensions
In terms of living standards a double story extension can completely transform home living, not only giving you extra space in your lounge, kitchen, dining room or other living areas, but also increasing the available bedroom accommodation or providing an additional bathroom. This type of house extension will prove more cost effective than moving home whilst at the same time giving you significantly more living space, upstairs and down
Side Return House Extensions
Side extensions will likely be used to develop extra space in existing rooms or to re-arrange your indoor floor-plan to produce extra room that could include: bedrooms, bathrooms or liveable space. Side return extensions can be built together with a rear extension so you end up with a full wrap around extension giving even more living space.
