Before you begin think about what you want the room for. Do you need extra bedrooms? Extra living space? A larger kitchen? Depending on how you want to use the space you can plan the extension accordingly – it is a good idea to use and architect who will be able to make suggestions to you.

How will your extension look? You may need planning permission for it, and it is important that the building is aesthetically pleasing. Consider things like roofing as this has a big impact on the overall look of the building – always get an expert like this roofing Cheltenham based company Storm Roofing to do these sort of jobs.

Think about your budget and how you will finance the extension. There is nothing worse than getting halfway through a building project and running out of money, as then you will be living with a partly built extension! Work out your budget and costs for the extension before you begin so you know timescales and when payments are due.
