Extension Advice

Found 13th May 2018
Hi. We are hoping to knock down our existing porch and put a new one up, but extending it along in front of the garage. Wanting to build into the garage to create a cloakroom and study. Never done this before so would appreciate any advice on the process.

where to start .......................

1. You may or may not need planning permission. Go onto the council website and start looking.
2. Have you seen a similar conversion? Ask them who did it and if they would recommend them.
3. While on the planning web site, have a look for similar projects and find out who drew the plans (bottom right of each plan document and contact details are usually on the application form as 'the agent'). They will be able to give you some advice and some idea of cost.
4. Find people who have used a builder they would recommend. Phone the builders and ask them to visit/quote. You will get a feel for cost and honesty of them if you do this, say, 5-10 times (I kid you not)

Don't hurry

Really think it through. Find someone to walk and talk about it.
Thank you. WIll look at the council's website
