Many people jump into adding living space to their homes without knowing much about planning, design and the law surrounding it. Whether you are thinking of a garage extension, side extension, double or single storey extension there is a lot to be considered.
You will need to find out if the plan will add value to your home, speak to your local estate agent. Find out about planning permission as some extension projects may not need one but others might not. Building regulations will need to be followed and it would be a good idea to let your insurance provider know of your plans.
