Planning, design, cost and permission
When it comes to designing your extension you need to take in to consideration what extra space you require along with cost and the chances of gaining permission from your local council.
What extra space do you need?
Whatever your present requirements are, Acorn Building Solutions will liaise with you to ensure the design or your extension not only meets your current requirements but will also provide longevity. We will encourage you to consider any addition needs you may encounter in the future which will help your decision as to whether to build a one or two storey extension. An example may be that you only require some extra office space and a downstairs WC at present but are planning on starting a family in a couple of years, perhaps then warranting a double extension to incorporate an addition bedroom upstairs. Acorn Building Solutions can assist you in deciding exactly how big or small you want your extension to be and are willing to offer additional suggestions for those who are unsure of the design and cost of what they require.
