With the rapidly rising prices in the housing market moving out isn’t as feasible as it used to be, but sometimes one just need more space! It seems inevitable that one would have to move when their currently home just isn’t big enough anymore. There’s another option – Home extensions. It gives you more spaces, raises your property value, and generally sounds like a sound indeed… in theory. Believe it or not it can be just as great in practice – as long as you got all the facts.
First and for most, you need planning permissions. You must apply if the extension will be higher than the highest part of your roof, if any part of your plans is over four meters high, if the extension will cover over half of the property area, or if it grows the property by more than 115 cubic meters. If it’s denied you can then tweak it to fit whatever problems that have been raised by the council.
Once all the legalities are taken care of you can look into the best architects and builders in your area and start envisioning the finer details are your new expansion. Work hard to achieve the setting you want for yourself. Do try not to break something and don’t worry about furniture removals – you will deal with moving companies and moving furniture later, right now you have to focus on the job.
While you are on the job, be diligent. Be as diligent as the builders who will help you are. You want to do the best job possible, because you will have to trust in that extension to accommodate anything that you are planning on moving there. And you won’t want to start looking for another house to buy and have a house relocation to, so do keep the movers away and keep the builders working and all the calculations perfect.
At a certain point you will be done and you can take a step back and enjoy the good work you did. Yes, you had help, but you took the first step, you made the first move and you agreed to all the plans. This is your work and you will be enjoying it once all the professionals are off. You can then start moving furniture or decor in the place and make it a part of the house you always had.
