New Year, new extension!

New Year, new extension! This is on many people’s minds, mine including. More and more people are choosing to work from home so an extension is the ideal place for an office. You can have an office in your garden or just extend your home.

For an extension to be done successfully it needs to blend effortlessly with your home. It should look like it has always been there. The brick should be the same which isn’t a problem as most brick companies offer brick matching service.

The first port of call should be contacting your local council about planning permission. If you need to take down trees and hedges this could be a problem. So getting advice from your local council and applying for permission is very important. You don’t want to be made to pull it down when it’s all up and you’re a few thousand quid out of pocket. This can happen so getting permission is the first step. Building regulations need to be taken into consideration and the council can advice.
