House Extensions Sevenoaks Kent (TN13): House owners in Sevenoaks will have to cope with numerous problems over the years and a common one which affects nearly all of them at some time, is that of having a lack of adequate living space. This could occur for any of numerous reasons and may be down to an ever expanding family that's outgrown its home, an accumulation of clutter and belongings for which there's no longer any space or some change in circumstances whereby one of the family members will need to work from home and an office or workshop is needed. Regardless of what one of those situations you end up in, a choice must be made in order to solve it.
There are various benefits to be gained by picking a house extension instead of other alternative ways to circumvent your current problems with space. Selling up and relocating is actually the commonest way that Sevenoaks householders solve this issue. It is unfortunate to have to take this path, especially if you like the neighbourhood that you're currently living in. Moving to a bigger house in the same location may be a good resolution. It may however be that so as to get your house the way you like it, you've invested a lot of time and money. If you'd prefer not to move, and are happy with your current location and home, the ideal solution for you might be some style of extension or conversion.
Along with the varied factors behind needing an extension in Sevenoaks, there are also different methods for extending your property. While it will to a degree depend on the design and style of your house you might go with a one-storey house extension, a two-storey house extension, a garage conversion, a cellar conversion, a conservatory or a loft conversion. If the cost is an important factor then you might need to keep in mind that a two-storey house extension or a loft conversion is going to be the more costly of these alternatives, while a garage conversion should be the cheapest. The one-storey house extension is the most common style of extension that is seen in Sevenoaks.
As soon as you have settled on the appropriate style of extension for your house the next task will be to track down a reputable builder to undertake the work. It is a good idea to get a number of Sevenoaks builders round to look at your property and get an overall sense of who is available locally. This will allow you to get some professional guidance on how best to move ahead and provide you with a range of quotations. This is the perfect opportunity to discover whether planning permission will be necessary. Being up-to-date with the relevant legislation concerning house extensions is a thing any good quality Sevenoaks builder should be.
Planning Permission: The planning permission restrictions have recently been relaxed somewhat, with certain property extension work coming under the less rigid Permitted Development rights. These new laws took effect in 2019 (May 30th) making it easier for house owners to carry out remodeling. Even when you don't require planning permission, all of the construction work will still come under the applicable Building Regulations which address working safety and standards. Seek advice from your local authority to see if your home extension requires planning permission or get your builder to investigate for you. To read through the most recent planning rules and regulations you can also visit the government approved Planning Portal.
Property extensions can be designed for a variety of reasons and yours could perhaps be useful as a conservatory or sunroom, additional storage, a playroom, a kitchen, a games room, a home workshop, a granny annex, a bathroom or an additional bedroom. I am certain it will give great satisfaction, whatever of those you opt for.

One-Storey Property Extensions Sevenoaks
The construction of a one-storey house extension is one of the best ways to add extra living space to your property. To transform your dream into a reality you will need a professional Sevenoaks builder who specialises in property extensions. The most vital part of such a project is designing the extension. It doesn't matter what the ultimate function of your home extension is, quality design is essential.

Garage Extensions Sevenoaks
One of the least expensive ways to add further space to your home in Sevenoaks is to carry out a garage conversion. The act of converting your existing garage will save money, time and a lot of hassle. If you are not presently making use of your garage for its designated purpose, or can get by without it, this is an excellent solution. There's a fair chance that you won't need to get planning permission, unless you're enlarging the structure or substantially changing its usage. Although the principal shell is already there, some structural refinements may still be necessary. Work might be necessary in connection with the door in-fill, the roof, the floor and the ventilation. This might be just the ticket, if you're working to a tight financial budget.

Property Extension Design Sevenoaks
You might be constrained by external elements when designing your planned property extension, but aside from that it needs to integrate flawlessly with your current property layout and style. Adjustments to pre-existing internal walls, doorways and windows can be done to accomplish this and create an inviting area with a generous helping of natural sunlight.
One of the specifications to avoid the requirement for planning permission and make it a permitted development, is to blend the house extension into the existing property if at all possible; if it is in contrast (which is becoming more popular) it is more likely to need planning permission. If you plan to use an extension for a particular purpose, such as a games room or cinema, the design should include some soundproofing products so that you don't aggravate the neighbours or household members.
You can create an awesome feeling of space by elevating the ceiling or exposing roof beams. This can easily be developed in a two storey house extension with a split level, and will create an impressive and spacious designer interior.
