Extending the Home: What Are My Options?
If you have decided that you and your family need additional living space, there are quite a few options. Of course, building an extension will be a significant investment, therefore you want to maximise the benefits, and with that in mind, here are your options when looking to extend.
- Traditional Bricks and Mortar Extension – Costly, but it does allow you to keep in line with the house style. Check out your local construction companies in Hook, who would be able to design something suitable.
- A Conservatory – Made mainly of glass, a conservatory will bring in a lot of natural light and depending on the available space, can give you that much-needed space where you can relax in an open setting.
- An Orangery – Similar to a conservatory, an orangery is a combination of windows and brickwork, and with bespoke solutions, you can choose how much glass you want included. With sliding patio or French doors, you can merge your living room with the garden, which is great in the summer.
- Module Home – Providing you have the space, you could invest in a stand-alone structure that could be used in many ways, such as a guest room, a home office, a study, or even a man cave. There are companies that build module homes to order, using shipping containers and they can design something that meets all of your needs, which is ideal if you wish your parents to come and live with you in their later years.
