Extensions | West Oxfordshire Builders
If you need more space but you don’t want to move house, an extension is always a great solution. Extensions come in all shapes and sizes, from the small utility room added onto the side of your kitchen to a large two storey extension that could double the size of your home. If you are reading this it’s likely you’re already thinking about building an extension and you may have been mulling it over for some time. It’s a big decision and you need to make sure the result enhances the value of your property, as well as the way you and your family live your life. Let’s take a look at the top considerations when thinking about building an extension with our West Oxfordshire builders.
Start with research
It’s always a good idea to do some research online. Take a look at Pinterest or Instagram to see extensions on similar homes to yours. These are great (and free) sources of inspiration that can help to get you thinking about what it is you want from an extension.
Think about your needs
Consider how you want to live your life in your new extended home. What challenges will your new extension help to overcome compared with how you live now? It’s a big investment so you need to make sure any design will help to make your life easier/more calm/more creative/less cluttered etc).
Consult an architect
We’re not architects but we can advise on basic designs and we can also put you in touch with trusted architects for larger projects. There are many benefits of working with an architect: they can design truly impressive extensions, they know all about planning permission and they often know the local planning department’s preferences so it could be easier to get your designs approved.
Choose your builders
Once your plans are approved by the planning department you need to choose your builders – and that’s where we come in! Unreliable or untrustworthy builders are always a big fear for those embarking on a building project. Yet with our team of West Oxfordshire builders you won’t need to worry. We’re working to change the reputation of the building industry through the reliable, reasonable and understanding way we do business.
