Extensions & Conversions
Creating your perfect home
Adding extra living space can potentially give your property added value, whether its an extension or conversion. By adding an extension, you can release your homes potential, giving it a fresh new feel and create more space in your home without the hassle and expense of moving house. You can alternatively convert your loft, basement or garage into extra living area.
Whether you are looking to extend in the same style or would like to add a contemporary room, we can take the time to go through your plans and create you the space you have always wanted.
Most garages end up being used as storage rooms but could provide an extra reception or even a guest room, if your garage is built-in to your home. As the basic structure already exists, often there is no need for expensive external walls and foundations. Disruption to your home life should be minimal and the project can take from a couple of weeks to a couple of months for more substantial conversions.
Think about the space in your home that is currently filled with boxes and junk - all stashed away 'just in case'. Its quite likely that you could make much better use of your loft garage or basement. With a bit of imagination and meticulous planning you too can have your dream space. Loft conversions offer a convenient way to add extra living space such as a playroom, a home office or an extra bedroom. There is no minimum headroom requirement to convert your loft, but common sense says at least two metres is a good guide to ensure that you can stand up in the room. The stairs however must have a minimum headroom of two metres to reach your loft.
Remodelling existing rooms
Unless your property is listed, knocking down internal walls, dividing rooms with partition walls or installing en-suite bathrooms won't require planning permission but must comply with relevant Building Regulations.
So if you need different living accommodation rather than extra space, remodelling could be the answer. Taking down internal walls to open up the kitchen, living and dining space for example should let light flood in and create a wonderful sense of space.
