A service built on firm foundations
Depending on the size of your plot, the position of your home within it and your budget. An extension can provide you with great choice and flexibility. For example, you can determine its size (within any planning constraints), whether its single or two storey and the layout of the rooms.
Lifestyle is the London home extension company. We have developed an enviable reputation for helping delighted clients add maximum space, style and value to their existing homes with minimum stress and inconvenience.
Versatility built in
As we've already said, extending your home provides you with a wide range of options. For example, are you after more bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate a growing family or an elderly live in relative? Maybe your wish is to increase your kitchen into a real cooking, eating and living family-sized space? Perhaps you want additional room for a home-based business, gym, games room or a kids' den.
Whatever your vision, we can help you turn it into practical and beautiful reality, all to your budget and timeline. And all planned and built to the highest possible professional standards.
Is an extension right for your home?
There are many factors to take into account when considering an extension to your home, here are some of them:
What kind of area is your home located in? For example, is it in a conservation area? It's important to check for any special regulations that may exist. You are almost certainly going to need planning permission (see below), so do consider the size and look of your potential extension, what precedence other properties have established and the impact your extension might have on the environment, neighbours and community.
A large building project can be time consuming, complex and stressful to self manage. So to achieve the best results and avoid expensive errors, do brief an experienced architect or structural engineer to draw up your plans and use a reputable building company to undertake the project. Specialist companies will have the skills and experience necessary, understand the planning and building regulations processes, take into account key structural features and accommodate best practice. For added peace of mind, make sure your building company is registered with a professional association such as the Federation of Master Builders which requires strict standards of quality.
If your home is terraced or semi-detached or shares boundaries with other properties you may need to give notice to your neighbours of your proposed changes under the Party Wall Act (1996).
