Does your home feel cramped and cluttered? Does it seem like you have less space with each passing year?

House Extensions | How We Turn Ideas into Reality

Your extension project consists of numerous unique elements. These include the type of home you have, its size, the available land in your garden, neighbouring properties, access, your budget and whether or not you live in a conservation area.

Because of these variables, we provide a fully bespoke service, if needed. This includes working with our supporting architects to draw up a plan based around your design aspirations, lifestyle requirements and overall expectations. Of course, our builders can also work to a pre-existing design if you have one.

If required, we can offer advice and guidance that ensures your proposed addition qualifies as a permitted development. This dictates whether or not we need to apply for planning permission.

Generally speaking, most single-storey house extensions fall within your permitted development rights. This means you don’t need prior consent from your local authority. Double-storey extensions, however, almost certainly need approval before work can begin.

Like any reputable builders, we clarify where your project stands from the outset.

Whether you use our supporting architects to draw up a bespoke design or your own preferred professionals, you will receive a truly fit-for-purpose plan. From here, our team of builders, groundwork contractors and tradespeople start the physical construction phase.

With our tireless work ethic, attention to detail and outstanding workmanship, we deliver premium results that fully comply with all relevant building regulations.
