A home extension can provide you with space and comfort that you require and yet, there are some obvious considerations to take into account so that you can make the most informed decisions possible.

For instance, will the new addition be necessary to increase storage space or are you looking to convert an existing loft into an office so that you will be able to work from home? There are generally two options in regards to these and other cases.

You could modify the existing space within your home or add to the structure itself through completely new construction. Thanks to our presence within the Devon community for over 20 years, CB Architectural Services is more than happy to point you in the right direction.

The Choices at Your Disposal

Any extension can represent a significant undertaking, so it is always wise to approach this option from a pragmatic stance. Besides determining the ultimate purpose of the build (as described in the last paragraph), you need to consider the existing dimensions that you have to work with.

For instance, is it possible to construct a detached dwelling or would any new additions impede the remaining space that you have left? We should always keep in mind that overextending a home can negatively affect its overall appearance and detract from the property itself. In this case, remodelling could indeed represent the best option. A handful of common choices include:

  • Removing specific walls to open up interior space.
  • Placing partitions between rooms to create an extra level of privacy.
  • Adding larger windows or French doors to increase the amount of ambient light.

Other possibilities could include transforming a loft or modifying a basement so that it is a liveable space. One of our experts will be able to point you in the right direction.

More Than Construction Alone

Any Devon home extension also needs to take into account the time involved, the project costs and the local building regulations. This is the main reason why it is so important to utilise the services of a dedicated and experienced project manager during every step of the build.
