Adding an extension to your home can offer a wide range of benefits, both in terms of improving your living space and increasing the value of your property. Adding an extension can also allow you to stay in the same area while still accommodating your growing family or changing lifestyle.

Here are some key advantages:


One of the most obvious benefits of adding an extension is that it provides extra living space. Whether you need an additional bedroom, a larger kitchen, a home office, or a family room, an extension can give you the room you need without the hassle of moving to a new house.


Expanding your home can lead to increased comfort and improved functionality. You can design the extension to better suit your lifestyle, adding features and amenities that make your daily life more enjoyable and convenient.

Increased Property Value

Well-planned and well-executed home extensions can significantly increase the value of your property. 


In some cases, extending your home may be more cost-effective than buying a larger property or moving to a new location.

When extending your home, our team will be there to every step of the journey. Throughout the early planning stages, you’ll be encouraged to consider with your draftsman: 


Determine how much you’re willing to spend on the extension. Make sure to account for not only the construction costs but also any design and permitting expenses.


Consider how the extension will fit into the existing structure and layout of your home. Think about how the new space will be used and how it will flow with the rest of the house. Our team will work with you to develop a design concept that aligns with your vision for the extension while considering the practical aspects of space utilisation and aesthetics.


Working in line with your vision, our team will aim to create an extension that seamlessly blends with the existing home’s design and architecture, maintaining visual cohesion both inside and outside.


We can advise if your existing utilities, such as plumbing, electrical, and HVAC, can support the new extension or if upgrades will be necessary.


The draftsman will be able to provide estimates and advice that help you understand the project’s cost and scope.


Ensuring that the extension is structurally sound and meets safety standards is a top priority. Our team may need to collaborate with structural engineers to develop a safe and stable design.

Collaboration with Other Professionals

There are more people involved as the jobs get bigger, possibly engineers, surveyors etc. Don’t panic though, we know the best in the business.

In summary, a home extension can bring numerous benefits, but it’s crucial to carefully plan and consider various factors, including your budget, design, regulations, and functionality. Our team are always available for a chat, so please get in contact today.
