As soon as you've settled upon the appropriate style of extension for your property you will need to find a reputable builder to do the work for you. It's better to get a number of Bishop Auckland builders round to look at your property and get a general feel for who is available in the area.

This will also be a favourable time to determine if the work you are proposing will require planning permission. Being clued up on the current legislation concerning home extensions is a thing any good quality Bishop Auckland builder really should be.

Will I need Planning Permission? The planning permission regulations have recently been relaxed somewhat, with some home extension work being covered by the less rigid Permitted Development entitlements. Taking effect in 2019 (May 30th), these new guidelines made it a lot easier for the average house owner in Bishop Auckland to do refurbishments and renovations on their properties. Even when planning permission isn't necessary, you'll still need to conform to the appropriate Building Regulations. Seek advice from your local authority planning department to ascertain whether your house extension requires planning permission or get your builder to find out for you. You could also look on the government authorised Planning Portal to examine the most recent planning rules and regulations.

Before you start your home extension you'll no doubt know exactly what you need it for, however there are lots of potential uses to which it could be put including: a home cinema, a bathroom, additional storage, a playroom, an additional bedroom, a kitchen/dining room, a conservatory or sunroom, a home workshop or a granny annex. It is sure to be really beneficial to you, whatever of these you opt to use.

Extension Design Bishop Auckland

You will want to decide on the correct materials for your home extension to enable it to blend in to the current structure, or as are becoming increasingly popular, a style which is a contrast to the original. How property extensions are constructed and what materials are used may vary according to their intended uses, but if you're planning a party or family room then you'll need to factor in the soundproofing requirements of your area.

Exposing the beams or lifting up the ceiling height can create a fantastic feeling of space to any extension in Bishop Auckland. This can be developed in a two storey property extension with a split level effect, and will create a spacious and impressive "designer" interior.

The act of converting an existing garage saves time, money and a lot of disruption. This can be an excellent strategy if you're not at present making use of your garage for the purpose it was intended, or can make do without it. Unless of course you are increasing the size of the structure or substantially modifying its usage, there is a pretty good chance that you will not need to get planning permission.
