If you‘ve ruled out the possibility of moving home but still need more space, it might be time to go down the route of adding an extension to your house. However, there are still several factors that you should consider before you start to hire architects and Building Contractors Bristol based company Mogford Prescott to create the work.
First of all, what do you want the extension to do? If it is to be a ground floor living space for an elderly relative. Do you need to expand the living room or dining room to accommodate your growing family? Perhaps you need to have a dedicated office space for work or, on the opposite side of the coin, you want a room to pursue your hobbies and interests.
You should always consider the cost first and foremost. There may be the chance of raising the cash for the extension from the property itself with a further advance. There could also be covenants on the home preventing the build, and you will need planning permission if it’s a large job. The works may well affect the neighbours you have, and the local council will take a dim view if you proceed without permission. These things are generally agreed upon and passed without a hitch for the most part. You’ll also need the services of an architect to make sure that the structure is sound and in keeping with the rest of the property.
