Paul Gavin from LGBTQIA+ friendly builders AQWA shares his tips on home extensions that make a difference. 

Oftentimes people think it’s time to up and move when their family begins to expand – but it’s rarely the case. House extensions provide an opportunity for unused property space to be utilised, allowing space to grow. However, there are a few things to take into consideration before you begin the process. 

Budgeting your build

Before making any major changes, it’s important to know whether it’s financially viable. Research similar projects in your area or apply for a quote with a construction company to see what figures they provide you. Make sure you leave a safety net for any uncertainties that could arise. 

Designing the extension

This is the fun part – bringing your vision to life. Once you know where you want the extension to go, it’s time to start designing it. Consulting a professional is always advised, to ensure you’re considering the main fundamentals. Make sure it fits within your property boundaries, caters to your requirements, and adds value to your home long term.

Securing permits

Before any work can start, investigate your planned work requirements and reach out to your local council and building certifiers. If you get started on the project without securing the necessary permits, you run the risk of being hit with major fines. 

Getting started

Now that you have everything in place, we can get started! Secure your preferred builder and watch as they begin to bring your home extension to life.

It’s important to engage a team that knows exactly what they’re doing and what you want. The AQWA team have a wealth of experience in this area and can’t wait to elevate your home to your desires. Give us a call today, we’re here to help.
