What is cheaper than an architect?
House extensions can be either single or two storeys high and can be built to the side, rear or even front of your property. The cost of a new extension can vary depending on the size, complexity of design, the use of materials and local planning considerations. The best way to get a true and accurate price for a house extension is to speak to an architect who can provide detailed design drawings which can then be used to obtain quotations from builders and for the submission of a building warrant application.
In addition to cost insights the early involvement of your builder can also assist with a more streamlined project timeline as they will have experience of working with the local planning office on previous projects, enabling them to navigate any potential issues and delays. It is also important to ensure that any new extensions are designed with energy efficiency in mind. This should include the consideration of insulating any ‘cold bridges’, such as external walls and roof areas and making sure that the new space is properly ventilated.
For many homeowners, extending their property is the preferred option over moving house. It can save money on deposits, removal costs and the associated stress and hassle of a move.
