Some things to consider if you are thinking about adding a single storey extension to your home are:

  • What is your budget? Aside from our architectural fees you may require planning approval, building consent and structural calculations. You can check whether you require planning approval for your extension by visiting the Planning Portal. Alternatively, as part of the service we offer we can find out this information for you.
  • Is your property listed or do you live in a conservation area?
  • How does the drainage work where you'd like to extend? An Anglian Water agreement may be required. This is also a service that we can provide you if it is something that your project needs.
  • Depending on what your extension is for design possibilities may include: roof lanterns, ceiling windows or bi fold doors. This will be an additional cost that will need to be considered at design stage.
  • If your extension is to house a family room space (see our specialist page here) ensure you manage the area. How will your kitchen be designed to work for you and your family? Do you wish to add a lounge and dining space?
  • Does your vision for your extension include excessive glazing? Our in house SAP assessor will be able to provide all the necessary calculations in readiness for your technical working drawings.
  • How may the extension impact on your home? Consider if you can live on site whilst the work is being carried out.

My build will require local authority applications/ other agreements, can you help?
