House Extensions Glasgow Scotland (G1): The problem of not having adequate space in their home is a predicament that faces many house owners in Glasgow at some stage in their lifetime. It may be a consequence of an increased amount of clutter and belongings for which there is no longer any space, a change of circumstances where one of the occupants needs to work from home and an office or workshop is required, a growing family that has outgrown the home, or any of various reasons. If you're up against one of these scenarios you will have to find an effective way around it.
There are numerous ways that you can choose to circumvent your lack of space and one of the less unsettling to your everyday life is to add a home extension. There are obviously alternative options. Lots of property owners in Glasgow deal with this issue by simply relocating. It is unfortunate to have to take this course of action, particularly if you love the neighbourhood that you're currently residing in. A good option could be to remain in the same location but move to a larger property. But, maybe you have put loads of time and effort into getting your house the way you like it. If you would prefer not to move, and are satisfied where you are, the ideal option for you may be some form of extension or conversion.
There are a number of different solutions to choose between with regards to extending your house in Glasgow. While it will to an extent depend upon the style and design of your property you might settle on a loft conversion, a 2-storey house extension, a garage conversion, a conservatory, a one-storey house extension or a cellar conversion. A two-storey house extension or a loft conversion will likely be the most costly, whilst a garage conversion will generally be the cheaper of these alternatives. In Glasgow and the surrounding areas, the single-storey house extension is the most common type that's seen.
When you've finally arrived at a decision on the right extension for your circumstances and budget, it is time for you to start hunting for builders who can do the work. There could be three or four Glasgow builders who satisfy your requirements, so get several around to take a look at what's needed. This should allow you to get a bit of professional feedback on how best to move forward and give you a range of price quotes. This will also be the perfect opportunity to determine if the work you are proposing will require planning permission. Any decent house extension contractor in Glasgow really should be well aware of the current legislation.
Do I Need Planning Permission? There's a good chance that your scheduled house extension work will not even require planning permission, because there have been recent changes to ease these legislations, with lots of home improvement work coming under Permitted Development. These new "softer" regulations took effect 30-05-2019 and made it easier for house owners to carry out renovations. Even if you do not require planning permission, all work will still need to comply with the applicable Building Regulations which cover working safety and standards. Seek the advice of your local authority planning office to see if your extension work requires planning permission or get your builder to investigate for you. To read through the most up-to-date planning regulations you could also check out the government endorsed Planning Portal.
Before you start your house extension you will no doubt know what you need it for, but there are many potential functions that it could serve including: an extra bedroom, a children's playroom, a kitchen, a games room, an office, a conservatory or sunroom, a utility room, a new bathroom or a granny annex. Whichever of those you decide upon I am certain it will give great enjoyment.

Whilst adding a bit of extra value to your house, a conservatory also provides more living space making the property more appealing visually. With the addition of a nicely built conservatory, your property is going to be attractive to prospective buyers. Your objective however at this time is to provide an extra room and build a space that can be enjoyed. One of the principal advantages of a conservatory is that it allows lots of natural sunlight into the building. With plenty of different types of conservatory to pick from in Glasgow, identifying one to complement your property really should not be too difficult. Essentially a P-shaped conservatory, a gable conservatory, a lean-to conservatory, an orangery, an Edwardian conservatory or a Victorian conservatory will be your choices.
Extension Design Glasgow
The style and design of your extension is limited only by your own creativity, but it needs to integrate seamlessly into your current home to provide a welcoming and comfortable area. Alterations to existing window openings, doorways and interior walls can be made to achieve this and develop an inviting room with a lot of natural daylight.
In an older structure it is usually more desirable to merge a house extension into the current structure, while more modern homes can be given a designer appearance with materials that contrast between the extension and the original property. The materials you use will need careful thought, and property extensions used as games rooms or cinemas will require effective soundproofing to avoid aggravating your next door neighbours.
Think about head space and how taller ceilings can produce an awesome effect. This can readily be developed in a 2 storey property extension with a split level effect, and will create a spacious and eye-catching "designer" interior.
