WHY CHOOSE A TWO STOREY EXTENSION
Opting for a double extension not only gives you that extra space but will also add value to your property. Many homeowners consider a two storey extension over a single one as whichever option you choose, you only need one roof and set of footings. Hence the reason of getting more value from your build and that extra space for bedrooms or bathrooms you require.
There are many options for where to have your extension built, the rear is normally the best location. Keep in mind not to take too much away from your garden but if you have land to the side of your property this works well with many designs.
Before you start you will need to consider how to use the extra space, extra living space, kitchen and bathroom are the best use and easier to blend in to you existing property.
HOW MUCH DOES A DOUBLE EXTENSION COST
This all comes down to your location, project size and final fixtures and fitting you want for your new two storey extension.
Costs that you can expect are those of tradesmen and labour, materials and planning fees.
Once you have your Merriott Chard plans, aside from the actual build cost you will need to budget for the non build fees.
These include any party wall agreements you may need, application fees for your planning and building control charges.
Other cost that should be factored in are if you require a project manager, structural engineer or any survey costs.
The time of year can also play a factor in to the overall cost of a two storey extension with summer being the preferred option.
Once the 'cut through' from the new build to your home has been done you will have cold spots making the overall temperature drop meaning more heating costs.
Building work can be delayed by bad weather with trades unable to work in adverse conditions.
