The considerations for building an extension to your home are many. The size of the property, the number of rooms and/or locations to be included, the overall layout, the budget and the local authority’s planning policy, to name a few. In addition to these the local authority’s policy must be adhered to regarding planning permission and whether you require planning permission in order to build an extension onto your home. If you wish to build an extension into your house, it is worth considering the pros and cons as well as the feasibility of the idea before commencing work.

One of the major considerations for building an extension to your home is the size of the property. It would be unwise to attempt to fit a large extension onto a small property for instance. It would be unwise to attempt to fit an extension onto a house which is not meant to be accommodating to it.

The second major consideration for building an extension to your home would be the location. If you wish to build an extension onto a house which has already been constructed then you will need planning permission from the relevant planning authority as will any plans for additional extensions onto your own house. Planning permission may not always be required if you have the correct designs as a few developers offer designs free of charge so if your home is not really suitable then planning permission may not be necessary.
