Every building project starts with idea. Architects and builders are the people you should talk to…
first to get your home extension ideas. Therefore, best is to call in an architect as early as possible before the project begins.
If you call us, our architect will prepare drawings, showing all aspects of existing and proposed building layouts.
One of the key factors to consider is whether you want an extension that would be described as “permitted development” (single storey up to three meters away from the rear wall – on terraced and semi detached properties or up to four meters away from the rear wall on detached properties) or bigger – that would require planning permission from the Council.
Acquiring planning permission may take a few months, it will incur additional application costs and there is a great chance of refusal. With “permitted development” house extension plans are supplied to the Council and within few days, once they are approved, you can start the building works.
Home extensions cost
Every project is somewhat unique – therefore, all house extension estimates are calculated individually. The key aspects, having impact on the final bill are: the size of the extension (floor area, single or double storey), access to the back garden, type of building materials (especially finishes and equipment to be installed), structural elements (how many walls to be removed and supported by steel beams) and many other smaller details to be specified. On average, the building costs for a medium size (one storey) house extension in London is about £25000 – first fix (externally – finished, internal works include plumbing and electrical points, walls and ceilings – plastered, floor base constructed, basic UPVC windows and doors installed) – that’s about £1200 per square meter. For a double storey extension – on average £1000 per square meter.

Every loft conversion is somehow unique and depends on the condition and structural ability of your property. Before the loft conversions begin, some initial work has to be carried out: you will need to gain building regulation approval (some properties may not need planning permission, provided the loft conversion is the first extension and does not exceed 40 cubic meters on a terraced property and 50 cubic meters on others). You will also need to get architectural drawings.
Loft conversion project will be carried out in stages:
• scaffolding erected at the front and at the back;
• access hole made in roof – for the materials to get in;
• supporting frame constructed for the floor;
• opened up the back side of the roof and framing constructed for the new roof;
• insulation placed, electrical wiring done, central heating pipework, frame is boarded up, windows installed, stairs erected;
