When you bought your first home, you always thought that this house would last you until your retirement and maybe beyond that. However, as much as we try to prepare, our families end up bigger than we planned and when they grow up, we have to find extra space for them. Your teenage sons and daughters are always at each other’s throats because they want their privacy and they get angry with you because you can’t provide it. You have 2 choices here, you can either move to a bigger house or add an extension on to your current one.
The cost of an extension in Norwich is not as expensive as you might think, and if you shop around, you can get different quotes from different builders. There are a number of ways to create new space in and around your home.
- It’s always overlooked, but the attic in your home is an under-utilised part of the house. Your builder could convert that into one big bedroom or 2 small ones. What kid wouldn’t want to sleep at the top of the house.
- An extension itself onto the side of your property is very doable and as long as your neighbour doesn’t mind, you may be able to do it without needing planning permission. Your builder can look into that.
- The garage that you don’t park the car in could be turned into an amazing granny flat and that would provide a private space for your oldest child who is now turning into a teenager.
Your builder can do it all and they have many years of experience and many projects like this behind them.
