Cost of a house extension
Increasing the size of your home can avoid the expenses of moving, estate agent fees, solicitors and stamp duty. However, as with most things, the cost for building an extension can vary greatly depending on what it is you are after. Although it is the logical and cost-effective choice, extending your home can be a very stressful process if you are not prepared. Factors such as materials, shape, and size of a room can all have a large impact on the cost of a house extension. Currently, building work can vary anywhere in between £1,000 to £2000 per square meter.
Types of house extensions
Many homeowners in London struggle with insufficient space within their current properties. And although moving sounds like the only option, it is not always affordable. This is where we come in. Extending your home is a great way to maximise space and increase the value of your property. There are many options available to you when making this decision.

We will evaluate your budget and current property to find the best solution to your problem.
Why are you extending– It sounds silly, but why are you extending your home. Having clear goals at the start of your project is crucial. Will the extension provide you with an extra bedroom, office, or are you just using it for storage?
Where do I want the extension– Deciding where you would like your house extension is another important decision you need to make. Will it be at the side, front, rear, or above an existing part of your property? You will want the extension to flow with your current structure and without cutting off natural sources of light.
