If you and your family are outgrowing your current home, you have probably thought that you might need to move to a new house in the not too distant future. But moving can be stressful and time consuming, so if you are happy with the area that you live in but just want a bit more room in the house, why not build an extension?
As well as being a great solution to your space shortage, a well-done extension can add a lot of value to your current home, and you can stay where you are without the stress of moving.
One of the first things that you need to consider is how you will finance your extension – Chippendale and Clark accountants Chippenham can help you to look at your finances and the best way to go about financing an extension.
You should also speak with a builder and an architect about what you are hoping to gain from your extension and what options you have for extending your home. It might help to look in the local area at what other people have done with their extensions to get some inspiration and ideas.
A local estate agent will also be able to advise you on how much value an extension will add to your home – they will have a good idea what sells in the area as well as what people are looking for from a house so will be in the best position to advise you.
