When you feel like you are running out of room in your current home you can move into a bigger place. But if you love the place that you are in, it can be cheaper and less of a headache to build an extension.

 

As well as this a well done extension like these oak framed extensions https://www.timberpride.co.uk/oak-frame-extension/ can add a significant amount to the value of your property. If you are looking to add some serious space to your home, then a two-storey extension is the best way forward. As well as gaining space on the ground floor, you will also benefit from some upstairs space too.

What’s good about the two storey extension too, is that the foundations cost will be the same as they will be for a one storey extension, so it won’t cost a great deal more than a single storey extension but you will gain double the space in your home.

One thing that you do need to remember before you start is that it is very likely you will need planning permission to build this, so factor this into your timescale when making arrangements as it can take a while for planning to be granted.

 

When looking into adding the extension it is also a good idea to find out some of the planning rules so that it is more likely that your planning permission will be approved. They like the extension to be sympathetic to the style of the house, as well as the neighbourhood – so nothing that sticks out like a sore thumb!
