Buildings and extensions. Build it yourself?
Adding Buildings and extensions should be an easy way to increase the value of our houses and give us the extra living space we need. Builders in Surrey and the Home Counties in particular will confirm that for many, sacrificing some garden space in favour of an extra room can be the only way of affording somewhere big enough to live. But building an extension doesn’t always turn out as we hoped. Before you start you need to consider the planning regulations, and how your neighbours will be affected, and that’s before you get round to managing and completing the project itself
We‘ll tell you how to make it as easy as possible. So if you follow our advice it may not be quite the ordeal you feared
It’s unlikely that many of our readers will be constructing buildings an extensions let alone a house solely as DIY jobs. Unless you’re videoing it to send it to ‘You’ve Been Framed’, driving a JCB around the garden or constructing scaffolding yourself isn’t such a good idea
But even if you have no DIY skills and use subcontractor builders in surrey, you can significantly reduce costs by managing the project yourself. You can use different tradesmen to complete each part of the work and get a surveyor to approve it at each stage. Given the sums involved the savings can run into many thousands of pounds. But you’ll need to consider our advice first
We’ll also be helping readers to consider when building an extension what sort of extensions are best suited for them. If you’ve won the Euromillions you can probably have what you like. But if your not so lucky you need to be aware that although some extensions can increase the value of your house by more than the cost of building them some will go only part of the way towards paying for themselves, and some others can even reduce the value of your property
And it’s not just builders you need to think about. Building an extension can involve the same planning issues as building a house
Builders in Surrey and the home counties, where building land is scarce and expensive, will tell you how proposed extensions, can cause problems with neighbours who fear consequences to the desirability of their own property
The government has decided that some extensions which previously needed planning consent can be built without it in future. But as ever there’s controversy. We’ll be reporting on any significant updates in planning regulations relating to extensions and any other buildings. Good quality builders in surrey will be able to help with this process.
Green Home Improvements, When we’re building an extension to our home, it’s often the ideal opportunity to add some energy saving features into the extensions themselves or elsewhere in the house. We’ll tell you how you can take the opportunity to improve your energy efficiency and cut your fuel bills
