Garage Conversions

Garage conversions can be a generally cheap approach to adding additional space to your home by using a space which is regularly wasted. Many garage conversions won’t require planning which implies development works can begin generally rapidly. However, planning is typically required where a garage is changed into a separate house, regardless of who will be possessing it.

HMO and Flat Conversions

Converting a house into flats or into a ‘House in Multiple Occupancy’ can be commercially profitable . Planning is required where new dwellings are created in this way which can be a time consuming process and differs between local authorities. Additional works such as loft conversions and rear extensions are often constructed as part of the same scheme to maximize floor space and added value to the existing property.

Commercial Conversions

Numerous business properties can be changed over into private homes under ‘permitted development’ planning policy. This can be a cheap method to create a residential flat or house, although planning policy requires the floor space to be less than 150m². However, outside modifications will for the most part, require planning consent and be hard to acquire.

Rear Extensions

Rear extensions allow you to expand the ground-floor of your home outwards at the rear of the property. This type of extension can vastly increase the size of your home and is ideal when extra rooms might be needed. Rear extensions are also brilliant at providing large open plan kitchen and dining areas which blur the line between outdoor and indoor spaces. They are most suitable for homes where garden size is less of an issue.

Double Storey Extensions

Double storey or two storey extensions run across two floors – they generally add the most amount of space and value to your home. Double storey extensions can be side, rear or wrap around extensions which usually run two floors in their entirety. However, some properties require partially double storey extensions combined with single storey areas. Two storey extensions can provide everything a single storey extension does on the ground floors whilst allowing extra bedrooms on the first floor. For this reason, double storey extensions are often seen as a viable alternative to moving home.

Side Return Extensions

A side return extension stretches the ground floor of your home into an alley-way at the side of the building. This type of extension is common in period terrace houses because it makes use of the ‘dead space’ at the side of the property whilst preserving the garden. By using the full width of the property side return extensions are fantastic at creating contemporary open-plan kitchen and living areas. This type of extension is typically less expensive than alternative home extensions which make them an efficient way to add value to your home.
