We now have official plans for our new extension! The last update I posted was to say that were planning it and all my ideas, but now I have it down on proper paper and not just drawn by me!
Here is our house as it is, with a garage to the side
Here is our house with a new extension. Which is all out to one side where the garage was and the new part pushed slightly out backwards.
Here is our house from the inside how it is currently.
This is the exciting one! Here is the floor plan of the new extension layout, look how much room we will have, it really hit home once I could compare the floor plans!
The internal layout of the utility room, kitchen layout and what’s going in the old dining room will be different once we have proper room sizes and have figured out where things can go properly. BUT that’s our new semi-detached house extension!
So What’s Going To Happen Now?
Well, now we wait! The plans need to be submitted to the council for planning permission to be approved, so now I need you to keep your fingers and toes crossed for me! As soon as we get approval I will let you know!
Any Tips For Finding Builders?
I want to try to contact and meet a few builders whilst I am waiting. I thought I could meet them and see how they work regarding quotes for work, their timescale and availabilities etc. That way once I have approval from the council I can then just crack on with getting the builders booked in ready to start!
It’s such a big decision though isn’t it which builder to go for, I am going to contact recommended ones from friends and family first and see how we get on with those. But any tips would be fantastic.
So keep those fingers and toes crossed for approval for us PLEASE!
