Following on from the first five tips in part one, Grant Builders provides the remaining five best practices for your Chelmsford House Extension.
5. Research various materials
The materials you use for your extension are what bring the final structure to life. Therefore, be sure to select the materials you want to form the focal point of your house extension, whether it’s slate roof tiles or exposed timbers.
4. Use your imagination
Don’t just consider a side or rear extension. If you have a basement, why not head downwards? The great thing about basement extensions is that the majority don’t require Planning Permission. One of the pros of having a basement extension is that you don’t lose any exterior space, plus it’s much closer to the primary living space than a loft extension.
Equally, in most urban areas, adding a basement extension could potentially add to the overall value of your home. Just something to bear in mind if you ever decide to sell.
