House Extension Beginners Guide

Are you considering a house extension? It may be something you’ve been thinking about for some time, and in this post, we’re going to be looking at what you can do to help yourself prepare beforehand if you’re a beginner.

Materials and Style

Think about how you want your finished extension to look. The extension will become part of the existing house, and it’ll need to blend in with what you already have. It needs to fit seamlessly with the room it follows on from, so it doesn’t look out of place. If you are finding it hard to match materials to the house extension with the rest of the house, you may have to compromise with a fusion of two different contemporary and older styles. Think it through and how you’re going to fit it all in with the current style of your home.

What is your extension for?

Why do you want an extension? Perhaps you have a specific function in mind. Look around your home and see which parts aren’t being utilised effectively and how you could use your extension to solve it. Remember, your extension can consist of more than one room.

Ceiling Heights

You’ll have to give some practical thought to the fittings, size and shape. Ceilings need to meet a minimum height. You can get in touch with your local Building Office where someone will be able to help you with this. You could also ask a professional builder too, perhaps the one who’ll be working on your house extension.

Conservatory House Extensions

The Building Regulations are something you’ll need to consider should you decide on a conservatory. It will need to be separate from the rest of the house with exterior doors to close it off.

Building Office

It helps if you talk to someone at your local building office, they’ll be able to speak with you about windows and doors, and whether there’s the possibility of any issues.
