Types of Extensions to consider

House Conversion

Single-Storey Extension

Single-story extensions consist of only one level and are typically added to the rear or side of a property. They are an ideal solution for expanding your kitchen or creating an extra office or playroom. Bi-folding doors are commonly included in these extensions, providing a seamless connection between the house and garden, perfect for warmer days. For the roof, you have two options: a pitched roof or a flat roof. Skylights are often added to single-story extensions to bring in natural light, making the space feel open and airy—perfect for an open-plan kitchen.

Double-Storey Extension

Similar to a single-story extension, this type of extension extends two floors of your property. It’s perfect for those needing a significant amount of extra space, as it creates additional rooms both upstairs and downstairs. This type of extension adds substantial value to the property, making it an excellent choice for property investors. However, since planning permission is required, there can be challenges, particularly with neighbouring properties. Therefore, expert guidance is essential to navigate the process smoothly.

Wrap Around Extension

This type of extension combines both a side and rear extension, resulting in an L-shaped layout. It is ideal for homeowners who want to extend an existing room while also creating a new one. For example, you can extend your kitchen and add a dining room. The planning permissions and roof options for this type of extension are the same as those for a single-story extension.

Over-Structure Extension

A double-storey extension built on an existing single-story structure is a popular choice for homeowners looking to add more space without sacrificing garden area. This type of extension is ideal for many UK houses that have a single-story garage on the side. By building on top of the garage, homeowners can add an extra bedroom or bathroom upstairs. One significant benefit of this extension is that it doesn't encroach on your garden space. It's a perfect solution if you only want to extend the upper floor. However, it's crucial to seek professional advice and conduct thorough checks, as some garages may not have foundations strong enough to support an additional story.

Porch Extension

Although a porch extension doesn’t create a new room, it’s a popular choice among homeowners because it adds value and enhances the exterior aesthetic of a property. This is especially beneficial if your front door opens directly into your living room, as a porch creates a buffer space. It provides a convenient area to store muddy shoes or umbrellas, keeping your living room clean. Porch extensions are also common due to their simplicity and ease of construction. Planning permission is generally not required, provided the porch is separated from the house by an internal door and is not heated. Following these regulations, a porch extension can be easily and quickly constructed.


If you want a room to feel like it’s outdoors but isn’t, a conservatory extension is ideal for you. This single-story structure is typically added to the rear or side of a property and is often made from UPVC, timber, or aluminium. It's the perfect solution for those seeking an extra room to use as a living room or office without the higher cost of a traditional single-story extension.

Loft Conversion

A loft conversion is the process of transforming an empty attic space into a functional room, such as a bedroom, office, or playroom. This home improvement project typically involves structural modifications, insulation, flooring, windows, and access stairs. There are a few different types of loft conversions include dormer, mansard, hip-to-gable, and roof light (velux), each varying in complexity and cost. We would always recommend getting planning permission due to the significant structural changes but may not be necessary for simpler conversions. Through our experience, some of the key considerations include head height, structural integrity, lighting, ventilation, and adherence to building regulations. Loft conversions are great for increasing the living space and adding value to your property, making them a popular choice for homeowners looking to maximize their home’s potential without extending its footprint.
