What is a House Extension?

House extension in Wimbledon, London

House extension is a process, where you can add more space to your house for a reasonable price. Nowadays we know many types of House Extensions.

Orangery-style extensions

This is a typical type of house extension. The approximate price is around £30,000 and will be perfect to use as a dinning room. In many ocassions, it would not require planning permission.

Garage conversions

An attached garage could be turned in additional space to your house. This new place could be used as a kitchen. Again, you will not require planning permission. However, you will have to keep straight to the building regulations.

Cellar conversions

An existing cellar is great to be converted to home office place or to rest room. Cellar conversions come under permitted development rights.

Single storey extensions

This level of outlay could be sufficient to create a substantial extension. Many single-storey side and rear extensions will fall within your permitted development rights, but always check. And Building Regs will apply.

Two storey extensions

More cost-effective than a single storey because they double-up on the use of the foundations and roof – two of the most expensive parts of a build.
