House extension design

It is quite normal that your family outgrows the living space. You have several variants: move to a bigger house or to extend your old one. The latter variant is cheaper and has many other advantages:
  • Your children don’t have to part with their friends;
  • You don’t have to get acquainted with new neighbors;
  • Your garden remains the same, there is no need to plant new trees or to line artificial ponds.
After all, nobody wants to leave his familiar environment for some unknown places. So why move, when you can improve?

The first step is to work out house extension design, better entrust this task to qualified designers, who’ll prepare a detailed reconstruction project and provide you with 3D images, so you can see beforehand what your house will look like in the end.

Certainly there are many enterprises in your region, offering the whole range of building services. Employ architect who can thoroughly examine your house particularities and propose you the most fitting solutions. Also you will be able to set your budget before the construction works start.

There is no common rules concerning home extension design, it all depends on customer’s requirements. Some may desire to get a loft conversion; some may like to adjust non-residential premises for living. For example, it is very popular to move your kitchen and dining-room into basement, where you used to store unneeded stuff.

The most expensive type of home extension is building some additional rooms or floors. It may require receiving some special permission to build additional floors. Reputable construction companies will render assistance in that tedious paperwork. The overall cost will rise, but it will be less expensive than new house purchase.

Ground-level extension is the easiest way to expand your living space. You will have new rooms for your children, or you may like to have a covered swimming pool or an indoor garden. Very important point is finishing, all the walls must be of the same colour and texture. Only experienced builders will manage to do the work, so the result meets your requirements.
