Do you require more space? An extra room? Perhaps an annex for relatives requiring care? Then extending your home could be a cost effective option.


With mortgages becoming harder to obtain and the cost of moving house increasing extending your existing home has become a more reaistic and cost effective option and with less disruption than moving house.


My services cover the whole process from initial consultation to ascertain your options and possible restraints, through the design process, obtain statutory approvals (Planning & Building Control), obtain contractor costings, appointment of a suitable builder  through to full project management and contract administration.
