Building a house extension perfect for you home
It can substantially improve your living comfort, give you more space, and last but not least, it will also raise the value of your property.
From a simple porch extension to a complex multi-storey house extension, from a garage conversion or over-structure extension to a basement conversion, building an extension will create a space suitable for numerous uses: a garage or a workshop, a separate utility room, a new or larger kitchen, an extra bathroom, a spare bedroom, a living room or a dining area.
These types of extensions adjoin the existing building and potentially provide significant extra space.
