Extending your home is a fantastic way to increase the size and value of your home. You save money on stamp duty as well! We’ve
recently gotten a slew of inquiries regarding different kinds of extensions.

Here are some points to consider:

Before you start drawing your designs, there are a few things you should think about. These include the site’s location – is it a
conservation area, the plot e.g. the size of garden, proximity of neighbouring properties, soil characteristics, utilities, adjacent trees, any
flooding history, and rights of way. It’s usually a good idea to double-check local planning regulations to ensure that the addition you’re
planning is feasible in the region where your home is located.

Planning approval may or may not be needed. Generally-speaking, single-storey extensions to the rear of a property do not need
planning permission in Scotland but it is imperative to check with your localauthority planning department before embarking on any
extension project. However, if it is, the process takes 1-2 months. Regardless of whether or not planning permission is required, every
expansion requires Building Regulations Approval which is a separate process to ensure the construction meets building standards.

You may get quotes from construction firms while the paperwork is being completed. There are many businesses that provide such
services. However, make sure you pick one with a strong portfolio and a dependable organisation and staff. You should be able to choose
your own architect who is not affiliated with the building business, although some individuals prefer to work with a single firm.

There are many design choices available, whether you want a back, front, or side extension. Consider adding a glass roof to your
addition; it will increase the amount of light in your home and have a dramatic impact! Bi-fold doors with built-in shutters are another
excellent option. Creating a fresh atmosphere in your house! They may be customised to fit your home’s current design and create a
seamless transition between rooms or between indoor and outdoor areas. It’s critical that you understand your budget, but don’t skimp on
