These estimates can increase if you opt for high-end finishes or bespoke features.

Why Get An House Extension
Have been thinking of a house extension?
Maybe the latest pandemic has made you evaluate your existing home and you have asked yourself, how can i extend and improve my own home without moving.
You don't need to disregard your comfy home merely because of its small size. Today, small house extensions are one of the most excellent ways of adding value to your space under a low budget, and they are becoming very popular option as opposed to moving residence.
Having modest but perfectly designed additions to your house can be transformative. Such additions leave significant impacts to your room, bringing in good extra daylight, which links existing room spaces and improves the general air circulation.
If you’re looking to create more space within your home but don't fancy the idea of relocating to another area, as you feel settled in your existing home and where it's situated, then building a house extension might be just what you're after.
It all depends on your current property, the space that you have available, and your budget.
House extensions offer a great long term solution to homeowners that are maybe getting short on room in their current home and are not looking forward to the prospect of relocation. We say, why move when you can actually improve! Your home probably holds the key to so much potential for upgrading that you may not be aware of, we can help you unlock that potential with a property conversion or house extension. The best part is, we offer a free consultation and free quotation, one of our house renovation and design specialists can guide you through the whole process, including any planning permission “if required” some building work comes under “permitted development” which we can discuss and advise you accordingly. You never know, once you have extended your house, it could be your forever home!
Single Storey Extension
A single-storey extension can significantly enhance the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your home. This type of extension is added to the ground level of a property, offering a versatile solution to create additional living space. Whether you need an extra bedroom, a home office, or an expanded kitchen area, a single-storey extension can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Moreover, it often requires less planning permissions compared to multi-storey extensions, thus simplifying the construction process. However, it's paramount to consider factors such as natural light sources, integration with existing layout, and adherence to local building regulations to ensure a successful extension project.
3 Meter House Extension
A 3-meter house extension is a popular choice among homeowners, offering the perfect balance between added space and cost. This expansion can dramatically transform a narrow kitchen into a spacious, open-plan living area, or provide the necessary space for a comfortable home office. Despite its compact size, a 3-meter extension is flexible enough to accommodate a variety of designs and layouts, making it an excellent solution for homes of all sizes. However, it's crucial to obtain a Certificate of Lawfulness from your local council before proceeding with the construction, ensuring the extension aligns with the permitted development rights. Remember, careful planning and design consideration are key to achieving an extension that not only complements your existing home architecture but also brings your envisioned living space to life.
Front House Extension
A front house extension can dramatically transform the facade of your property while also providing extra indoor space. This type of extension is perfect for creating a new living area or expanding an existing room, such as a lounge or kitchen. It also gives homeowners an opportunity to improve the entrance of their home, enhancing curb appeal and potentially increasing property value. However, given its visibility, a front house extension requires careful planning and design to ensure it complements the existing architectural style. It's also crucial to remember that front house extensions may be subject to stricter planning permissions due to their impact on the streetscape, so consulting with a professional architect or planner is advised.
A loft extension is a popular home improvement project that effectively utilizes the often neglected attic space, transforming it into a functional area. It can serve a multitude of purposes, from a tranquil home office or library to an extra bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. Not only does a loft extension provide additional living space without expanding the footprint of your property, but it can also significantly boost the value of your home. The process generally involves strengthening the floor, adding in windows, and installing a suitable access staircase. It's important to note though, that while loft extensions are generally considered permissible development, it's crucial to obtain necessary permissions especially in conservation areas or listed buildings. Our professionals at Nottingham Builders should be consulted to ensure that the structural integrity of the building is maintained and that all regulations are adhered to.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you provide a complete House Extension Service?
A: Yes we do and the same answer applies with our garage and loft conversions. We have over 20 years of experience in the building industry and the knowledge and expertise to provide the complete package.

Our service can include all the necessary applications for the local building regulations, lawful development certificates and planning applications if they are required for your project.
Q: Will a house extension add value to my property?
A: It can be difficult to exactly say how much a house extension will add to your property due to various factors such as, type of extension that you are thinking of building, the type of property that you have and the actual location of your current property. However a guideline would show that the average three-bedroom UK house with a new extension that adds an extra double bedroom together with an en-suite could add around 15 to 25 per cent on to the value of your property. Any extra rooms would further increase the value on top of that. These figures are obviously averages and will depend entirely on your properties location. A good idea is to ask your local estate agent about the latest prices in your area and tell them about your intentions of extending your house, and they will have a good idea of what your house's estimated value will be after you have completed the extension work
Q: Will I Need Planning Permission For My House Extension?

We will always advise a customer during our FREE consultation and survey on which direction to go. If we think you need to check with your local authorities then we can help you through the process.
Permitted developments were set-up to allow people that own their own homes to fast-track house renovations, extensions and home improvements, and to streamline the procedure. This is fine as long as the householder adheres to some specific set-out guidelines.
Some of these guidelines will be void if they apply to properties that are situated in world heritage sites, conservation areas, protected places, maisonettes, flats, and areas of national beauty, so please check first.

Rear House Extensions
When constructing a side and a rear extension that will form a ‘wraparound extension, then permitted development restrictions will be taken into account against the criteria for both of the extensions individually, this will it make it most unlikely that the project will fall under your permitted development rights. For example, side extensions are only a permitted development where they are built less than half the width of your original property, but the combination of them both will likely exceed half of the width of the original measurement.
You can contact us to find out whether your intended wraparound project does fall within the permitted development rights. You can phone us to discuss your planning options with our panel of experts, you can book a free consultation by filling out our contact form and we will be in touch within 24 hours.

A small kitchen extension could be anything like a kitchen island extension, kitchen worktop extension. On larger jobs, we might be asked to do a kitchen conservatory extension or a kitchen diner extension. No kitchen extension on is too big or too small for our company.
Even if you are fortunate for your new house extension to come under the permitted developments, you still must get the approval of building regulations.
Before any building work can be carried out that requires the building regulation approval, then a building control body must be appointed from your local authority.
For projects such as house extensions, garage and loft conversions, then usually a building notice will suffice. This can allow for work to start on your project in around 48 hours If you contact your local authority.
During our FREE consultation, we will guide you in the right direction if anything is not clear, and help you complete any necessary paperwork or forms beforehand.
Lawful Development Certificate
If you think that your intended building proposal comes under the 'permitted development' and you would like to acquire written confirmation to guarantee that planning permission is not indeed needed, you can always apply for a Lawful Development Certificate.
Acquiring this Lawful Development Certificate before any work commences can be very useful for the future when a residential property is sold. This is because it is recorded and disclosed on the Local Land Charges search, and is a good record to have to show potential buyers that the building work you had done is covered by this certificate and didn't need any planning permission beforehand.
