Advice about planning your extension

Building an extension is a big undertaking. There are lots of things to consider before a decision can be made about starting work on the project.  For instance;

  • How much will it cost?
  • Can I afford it?
  • Will I get planning permission?
  • How will I find a builder?

GrowYourHome can’t provide all the answers but it can help you get an idea of the likely cost as well as provide some guidance on finding the right tradesmen and sorting out the necessary paperwork and approvals with your local council.
