House extensions are one of the most popular house renovation projects. Whether the house has been small from the start or for one or another reason more space is required now. Moving a house and upgrading to a more spacious property is not always the most suitable option thus an extension at the back is the best solution to create more space in the house.

More often extensions a built at the back of the house. Extending kitchen and/or dining space. 

Less often an extensions can be built at the side of the house. This option is less popular due to smaller numbers of the semi-detached corner houses as well as more complications arising in planning.

Every extension is individually planned. There are few rules before planning application has to be made to the council.

  • The new extension should not increase the original floor area of the house by more than 40 square meters and should not be higher than the house.
  • The extension should not reduce the open space at the back of the house to less than 25 square meters.
  • New extension of 40 square meters must take in consideration previously built extensions.
  • It's always a good idea to inform your neighbors about it, even though it's not required it makes good sense to let them know.
