Planning and designing a house extension is a major undertaking but the benefits are well worth it.
With so many things to consider it’s a much better use of your time to break all the planning and designing down into manageable chunks so you can plan your project more efficiently, make better use of your time and have more control over the process.
With this in mind, C Hanlon have prepared two guides to help: Guide to Planning a House Extension and Guide to Designing a House Extension. In them you will find the processes for each, learn about the pros and cons of your available options to help you make more informed decisions.
In the planning stage you will need to consider all the practical factors, costs, finance and payment, insurance, planning permission and Building Regulations.
At designing stage you need to know about the design process, architects, builders and tradesmen, heating and utilities and whether or not you stay onsite or offsite during building.
