House Extension - The Options!
When you hear the term house extension, you tend to think about a single storey, brick build style. But house extension types are varied and cover lots of different things including conservatories and even garages.
At the smallest end of the scale are porches. Most often added to the front but also the side or back in larger designs, they can be brick walls and columns only or have full windows and doors. Conservatories include variations such as garden rooms and orangeries that have more glazing than the average room and sometimes solid or sometimes glazing roofs. Sunrooms are the mid-ground between a conservatory and a brick built extension.
Single storey extensions can be added on the ground or first floor of a property. They can add to the floor space or be located above a garage or an existing single storey area. They are ideal for any possible use including extending existing rooms. They are usually added to the rear of the property or the side.
Two or more storeys can be added to the same height as the original house and have the benefits of creating two or more levels worth of rooms. They do tend to involve a greater chance of planning permission due to the impact on neighbours.
