A single or double storey extension to the rear or side of your current property can be an ideal solution when circumstances change: working from home, growing family etc: You can create more living space, whether it be:
- Kitchen extension with open plan living or dining
- Additional living room or playroom
- Home office
- Extra bedroom, master bedroom suite or guest suite
- Additional bathroom or en suite
- Loft conversion or garage conversion
A well designed extension can be tailored to your individual requirements and can be more cost effective & less stressful than moving to a larger property
If you are considering having an extension & live in the South Manchester or Cheshire we can help you through the process. You will need to consider:
Design / Architects
If you are considering producing the building plans yourself, you will need help from an architect. We can recommend several architects or can work with your preferred architect. If we are involved at the design stage we can often reduce the cost of the build.
Planning Permission / Building Regulations
Most house extensions will require planning permission & building regulations approval from your local council. Councils may have different views on planning applications depending on where you live. An architect will be very helpful here as they deal with councils planning departments all the time. Visual clarification on permitted planning & guidance on typical householder projects can be found at www.planningportal.gov.uk/permission/
We supply a schedule of work so that you will know when each stage of the project will take place. This is reference document for regular updates & helps understand timescales for key decisions e.g. choice of windows, doors, sanitary fittings, kitchen, floor surfaces etc. This tool is keys to ensuring projects are completed to timescale & budget.
Internal layout/ internal fittings
We focus on what you actually want, if you change your mind we are happy to work through alternatives. Once you can visualise the newly created space we can supply layout plans & design & fit any bespoke units required.
