A very popular way in Birmingham and around the world to increase the living space within your home as an alternative to garage and loft conversions is a home extension. A home extension can be done in a variety of ways. Whether it is an attachment to the side of your home or an extension on top of your home, the reason for the extension is simple.
Although you can convert a loft or a garage within your home, eventually you will run out of space that can be converted. With an extension, that problem is solved. This is something that we have often completed within the city of Birmingham and the surrounding areas such as Shirley, West Bromwich, Perry Common, Stechford, Smethwick, Handsworth Wood, King’s Heath, Boardsley Green, Sparkhill, Quintin, Marston Green and more.
Home Extension information
If you are extending your home, there are a few things that you need to take into concern and plan forward before putting the initial investment in. As you can imagine, depending on the type of extension that you wish to undertake it could get expensive relatively quickly. Some of the costs that you would have to pay are labour costs and raw materials, which can result in what you need significantly increasing in costs. If you are looking to add a singular room and it does not require the space that you will be investing into, then it may be smarter to extending outwards instead of upwards. In the same vein, if you are looking to build a three-room extension, it may be smarter to pay for an upward extension rather than a side extension that would take up more space than necessary.
When you decide on which type of extension you would like to go for, you should then consider what you would be doing with the rooms themselves. If you are looking to create a double bedroom and a bathroom, then there are many things that you need to keep in mind. The same can be said if you decide to create a home theatre room that is if your building, or a sauna and steam room in the side of your home.
In terms of what you would like to do with the rooms themselves, this is completed up to you dependant on the special restrictions and budgets that may be put into place too. The plumbing, electrics and even the furnishings are all things that you need to keep in mind before you decide to undergo the project. These are also things that we can help you with if necessary.
