The Different Ways To Extend Your Home

1. The Traditional Extension

ExtensionMost commonly referred to as an "extension" the side or rear extension is probably what you will be looking for, you will need a builder and usually an architect to draw up some plans for your builder to work from and to give you an idea of how the finished extension will be.

As you may need planning permission for your side or rear extension, you may want to call in an architect early on, he can advise you and help you decide on how best to approach the extension and reduce disruption to your day to day living while the project is in progress.

2. An Orangery Extension

Orangery ExtensionThese are quite rare, but growing in popularity, better suited for those wishing to extend a kitchen area or add a little extra living space to the rear of the property. Orangeries look stunning and are a combination of a traditional extension and a conservatory and a perfect choice for a single storey rear extension.
