There are many reasons why more people are opting to extend your home Darlinghurst, rather than move, however, some are more popular than others. House extension is a cost-effective way of adding value to your property. Extra kitchen and living space or bedrooms are probably the most popular reasons for growing families and people wanting to rent or share accommodation. Often people want to extend the house into the garden to make more use of the available space. Finally, as more people work from home, adding an extra office space to the home is a popular choice.
Depending on the size, a typical extension could add around 25% to the value of the property. Loft conversion and basement will typically add up to 10% to 15% the property value. The cost of building works will depend on the style and size of the extension. Issues such as ground condition, site access, proximity and location of services are a huge factor in the build budget. Assuming that all of these factors are reasonable to deal with, as a rough guide, a single storey (20 metre sq) extension costs 22,340GBP or 1,117GBP per metre sq; two storey (40 metre sq) extension costs 46,080GBP or 1,152GBP per metre sq; a (32 metre sq) loft conversion costs 25,536GBP or 798GBP per sq metre; and a (32 metre sq) basement conversion costs 27,168GBP or 849GBP per sq metre.
The above figures will be more variable and depend on the preferences of the homeowner Darlinghurst. For example prices of the fitted kitchens can vary enormously depending on the manufacturer. A more detailed cost estimation for your project can be obtained at the planning stage of your project when the outline design is complete and floor plans are ready to be submitted with a planning application to the local authority.
Of course, you can't foresee unexpected problems but you can prepare for them. You should always set aside a contingency fund - we suggest 10% - to deal with added costs that can, and often do, arise.
