As you and your family grow, so your needs change and nowhere is this more evident than in your home. The house you started out in may not fit all the needs of a family that is expanding and growing up. Unfortunately, as much as your needs change it isn’t always possible to find a new place that both fits these needs and is affordable. The solution could be a home extensions project to create the space you need without the inconvenience of moving to somewhere entirely new.
There are many different types of home extensions and the ones you choose will depend mostly on your budget, the size of your property and the planning restrictions in your area. Take Leeds, for example. If you’re looking for someone who builds extensions in Leeds, you’ll also need to deal with Leeds City Council’s planning department. You may well find that your builder in Leeds can help you when it comes to getting planning permission.
If you are looking to create some extra space for a growing family and are not sure where to find it, consider the space you have in your attic or if you have a garage, could this be converted. You may also think about whether building an extra storey would be possible. If you have a small house but a fair sized property there are some great home extension opportunities for you. Garden cottages create a wonderful separate space for guests, parents or teenagers while a separate entrance flat could be used to earn extra income with tenants or as an office. Extend your home into your garden without losing the feel of the outdoors by building on a conservatory or sun room, an ideal space for entertaining and relaxing.
You may never have considered doing home extensions before, largely because of the perceived cost and hassle but in reality, with the right builders and contractors, the project doesn’t need to be a difficult or expensive one in any way. The key is to plan thoroughly and to do your research to find the most reliable builders in your area. Having some fantastic new living spaces is well worth the effort.
