How much does a house extension cost in the UK?
A house extension can cost between £20,000 and £70,000 + VAT. This range of prices is representative of different styles of extension, for example, your house extension would cost more if you were adding a bathroom or kitchen and a second storey extension would also push the cost up further.
Do I need planning permission for an extension in 2020?
You will need planning permissions for an extension in 2020 if the size of the extension is more than half of the land around the original house, or if your home is being brought nearer to a public highway or if you plan on building higher than the tallest point of your home. You’ll also need planning permission if you’re planning on using materials different to those currently used in your home.
How much does it cost to have a single storey extension?
A single storey extension can cost between £20,000 and £40,000 + VAT, however, this price could increase depending on the complexity and size of your project. You may pay between £1,200 and £1,500 per square metre for your extension, so a small 3 x 5 metre single storey extension could cost as little as £18,000 + VAT, depending on the materials used and firm employed.
What is the maximum extension without planning permission?
The maximum size extension you can build without planning permission will depend on the size of the land around your original house. When building without planning permission your extension can be no larger than half the area of land around your original house. Single storey rear extensions must also be no larger than 3 metres if semi-detached or 4 metres if detached.
How do I build my own extension?
Building your own extension requires a great deal of planning and time in order to get right. Designing a functional house extension that also looks great is not a simple task, and managing the construction of your extension can also be a job in itself. Assess your own skills, abilities and constraints before deciding to self-build your extension and weigh up the benefits of paying a professional to take on the work for you.
What is the most expensive part of building an extension?
The most expensive parts of building an extension are usually the roofing and the foundation, as building these requires the most manpower and time. Building a two-storey extension can offer better value to those with the funds who are willing to maximise the space in their home.
Is it cheaper to do a loft conversion or an extension?
A loft conversion is usually cheaper than an extension. The cost of new foundations and roofing typically make house extensions more time consuming and expensive than loft conversions, however in many cases they add more value and practical use to the homeowner.
Can I draw my own plans for building regs?
You won’t be able to draw your own plans for building regs, as these plans should be professionally drawn in order to satisfy the local authority building council if their approval is needed. Hiring an experienced firm to manage your extension build can help you quickly navigate any problems that might arise from seeking planning approval.
