EXTENSIONS

CALL US TODAY - 01252 878031

Rising property prices with a premium being put on space can make extensions a wise investment. However, this is a major project and shouldn't be undertaken lightly.

 

Although a modern extension can look good on an old house, when it comes to selling on it is important to appeal to the average buyer's taste. Therefore it is more advisable for an extension to match the architectural style of the existing house.

 

The room that usually benefits the most from enlarging is the kitchen. Adding a kitchen/diner creates the farmhouse kitchen most people want and provides extra space. The old dining room can become an office, playroom, or an extra sitting room. Kitchen extensions also provide the opportunity to extend upwards - an additional bedroom can be built on top at the same time.

 

Loft conversions are another good way of enlarging your house. Victorian or 1930s houses are ideal for these because of their high roof pitches.

REFURBISHMENTS

Most builders focus on building new homes, so renovating is typically a part-time activity for such tradespeople.

 

The processes and services required for renovations are quite specific and, once plans are signed off, building a new home is relatively predictable.

 

Renovations usually require all of the sub-trades that are needed for the construction of a new building. During renovation projects, flexibility is often required from renovation companies to respond to unexpected issues that arise. Projects involving renovation require not just flexibility, but a plan that had been agreed upon by multiple parties.

 

Renovation is the process of improving a broken, damaged, or outdated structure. Renovations are typically either commercial or residential. Additionally, renovation can refer to making something new, or bringing something back to life and can apply in social contexts.

BARN CONVERSIONS

The recent changes to planning rules have opened up the possibility of residential conversion for many agricultural structures previously considered not worthy. Dutch barns , corrugated metal barns and pole barns are supremely functional.

 

Embracing the ‘barn-y-ness’ of these buildings is even more important in getting the best out of this latest crop of agricultural buildings ripe for conversion. I find real beauty in their pragmatic simplicity, but you do have to work with their core character and make the structure, form and materials work for you rather than force them to be what they are not.

 

The barn form lends itself to so much of what we want in a modern home space, height and massive openings for walls of glass. They allow for experimentation in affordable, interesting materials, too. Metal, timber, fibreboard, rubber, you name it, pretty much anything goes with these buildings.

 

SWIMMING POOLS

Having a swimming pool at home has many benefits as well as improving your property and adding value.

 

Fitness is a main focal point of having your own pool as well as being able to stay at home with your family. It generates a focal point and attraction for friends and family.

 

Similar to fitness, aquatic therapy can be a major benefit of pool ownership. In fact, swimming pools have blessed the lives of many with such issues as fibromyalgia, cerebral palsy, as well as other illnesses.

 

Brookmead Construction have installed many pools and therefore have the knowledge and know how to advise on what is best for you and your property.
