Build an Extension to Expand Your Home

Homeowners are often on the lookout for opportunities to expand their homes and make their living spaces larger. One way to do just that is to add an extension to your home.

An extension is like adding extra rooms to your property by building on to the outside then removing the exterior walls to allow access to the new part of the house. It is important that you seek the right planning permission for this type of project, as councils need to be sure that you are planning an appropriate build for the area and that it will be safe.

Once you have the permission to build, you should always employ a qualified and experienced builder to bring your plans to life. Electric works and plumbing also needs to be carried out by professionals, with certificates provided for any electrics, gas and utilities provided. If you do not seek the correct help, you may end up with an extension which is unsafe or unsuitable for your needs.
