If you are desperate for extra space and do not want to relocate, extending is your only option, and there are quite a few ways this can be done. Garage conversions are popular, and for good reason, as you are making the best use of a structure that already exists, and in a word when we are trying to reduce our carbon footprint, a garage conversion is the eco-friendly way to extend. Here are a few more methods of adding living space to your home.
- Orangery – Glass makes for the best walls, as it gives a lot of natural light, and with double glazing, there is minimal heat loss through the glass. Bi-folding doors allows for the garden to come into the home, and some rattan furniture and LED lighting completes the picture.
- Traditional Bricks and Mortar Extension – With a quality home extensions company in Kilbride, you can design and build something that looks part of the property, rather than an add-on.
- Modular Home – They create stunning homes using sea containers, and the unit will be designed to the client’s specs. It has the added advantage of being stand-alone, which is great if you plan to use it as an office or a guest bedroom, and this would likely cost a lot more than any of the other options.
- Loft or Garage Conversions – Making good use of existing resources will save you money, and for many UK homeowners, this is the most attractive proposition, due to the low cost.
Whatever you choose, seek out a local builder who has experience with extensions, and with a firm budget in mind, the expert will give you some idea of what can be achieved.
