Why might you consider extending your property, making changes to your home or renovating outbuildings? With the recent economic situation in the UK meaning the housing market is a difficult place and the job market has become exceptionally competitive with minimal pay rises, pay freezes and even redundancies – many people are unable to move home even though they may need more room. There is an alternative to moving to a new home if you need to create additional space – converting existing areas to create new living space or using outbuildings to extend your home can be a way to not only increase your living area and add value to your property. Whatever project you have in mind, extending the premises or conversions, you will need the services of a chartered and reputable architect.
There are many considerations which need to be taken into account – planning permission, use of materials and design – whether you have an idea in your mind of what you would like to create or you have the area and need guidance on how to achieve your vision, working with an architect will help move your project forward.
