There are many families who live in the home of their dreams in the perfect location. However, as their families grow bigger, space may run short. They don’t want to move and give up the location, so a home extension seems to be the best solution to this problem.
Many families are taking this route. If you are considering extending your home to create more space as well, then there are a number of factors that you should consider before starting your home project.
Price and Logistics
One of the most important things to consider in a home extension is the cost of the project. Including all of the materials and the labour, it may cost you money, but it is generally cheaper than moving. So, if you need more space but don’t want to pay an arm and a leg, a home extension is a better route to take than relocation.
You should also take into consideration the amount of space that you have on your property. You obviously can’t cross your property line, but you also want to maximise the space you have available. When drawing up the plans, remember the dimensions of the property.
Legalities and Aesthetics
When planning your home renovation, it is very important to be aware of any laws and regulations related to building. Some areas and neighbourhoods require a permit or permits before extending a home or building anything extra in the property. Make sure to check your council and get an approval before building to avoid any legal complications.
If the project is a go, take the time to visualise what your home will look like with the extension. It should, if possible, blend in well and look the way that you want it.
Planning the Extension
Home extensions are popular for many Perth residents to accommodate growing families or to provide extra space. If you are planning one as well, you should consider the cost, how the extension will look, as well as the necessary permits that you may need. Once you have everything settled, you can begin crafting the home of your dreams.
