Terraced House Extension Plans – How Can You Improve Your Home?

Terraced house extension plans have the added complexity of having neighbours on both sides that need to be given consideration during the design stage. However, this doesn’t limit your options when it comes to how you can improve your home with the help of a skilled architect.

Extension plans for terraced houses can become complicated because you need to consider your immediate neighbours. This is particularly true of any boundary work that comes under the Party Wall Act. However, being in a terraced house should put you off extensions. Simple small extensions to your property often don’t require planning permission as long as they come under permitted development. A front porch can add character and value to your terraced house without disturbing your neighbours. If you are an end terrace, you could consider extensions to the side of your terraced property. You can achieve great results; all without boundary and party wall concerns. Other ideas include adding a conservatory to the rear of the property, or extending your existing kitchen or living area at the back. As long as these remain within the permitted development, and you take the time to talk to your neighbours and show consideration of their needs, all you will need to do is comply with building regulations. To ensure that this does not become the stumbling block of your house extension plans, the best solution is to hire an architect with specific experience in residential extensions. Not only will this provide you with design support, but also aid your builders in creating your dream.
