Home extensions- advice please on steel framed extensions vs brick built costs and erection
Hi Guys, Im after some views on a home extension as its obviously easier than moving in the current financial climate. Our 3 bed house has already been extended by ourselves with a 4m x 6 m side extension, but now we are looking to add another extension to the back in the middle to form a new master bedroom and then turn one of the smaller bedrooms into an en suite.
The new extension will be 5m wide against the house x 3m. So my question is please, Has anyone used a steel frame to build an extension and how do the costs and options compare? I have been told they go onto pad stones so need less excavation of foundations? Its not a huge extension but will be two stories, so would this be an easier option than brick. The other option would be green oak extension, but I think this may the most expensive option.
Many thanks guys for your time and help, regards Els
