Extension Floor Plans – More Than A Pretty Picture

Extension floor plans are vital if your project is going to reach completion. Not only do they help you design the room, or rooms you want to build, but they highlight any potential problems or concerns before the building work even starts. When completed by a professional, the floorplan is a valuable tool.

A floorplan that is drawn up by a professional architect will take a number of elements into consideration, alongside your wishes for the new build. It will ensure that you do not fall foul of your neighbours right to light. This is of particular importance with extension plans in city centres where buildings are much closer together, and natural light is at a premium. Floor plans also aid in planning where new pipes and cables need to be placed, and what ground works may be necessary before you can start building. Again, when it comes to neighbours, it is best to be able to show them exactly what is going to be happening and give them an opportunity to discuss concerns. This may stop things escalating to a point where your neighbour blocks your works under the Party Wall Act. House extension plans can become much more complex if you have a listed building, or live in a conservation area. Here the architectural floor plan is a must if you want to get past planning permission. It will be able to show that the needs of the environment have been taken into consideration, or that the extension is being completed in a way that does not detract from the original building.
