Expanding the Home

If you’re considering a house extension, you’ve probably been thinking about this for a long time. Most homeowners have something that they would like to change about their property whether they’re in Park Gate, Southampton or the surrounding areas. For some, nothing less than a full scale remodel can create the home of their dreams.

When considering house extensions, you’ve probably found overwhelming options. That’s because, with any house extension, the choices are yours. You can choose between a rear extension, a kitchen extension, a garage conversion, or a loft conversion. We’ll help you make the best choice by considering your property’s natural boundaries and architectural style.

The point is that with Eco Home Extensions, you can get the extension you want, whether you’re looking for a new living space or a new bedroom. We’re here to help. Don’t worry about the local authority. At Eco Home Extensions, we’ll ensure that we follow all codes to the letter.

Plus, we’ll be able to help with planning permission. If you live in a conservation area, you should always double check what development is not permitted before planning for your extension.

Considering a large scale change like a house extension is a big decision. That’s why we try to show you our frequently asked questions, to make sure that you understand what you’re getting into. If you have a question you don’t see posed here, don’t hesitate to contact our Park Gate team to talk more about your house extension today.

  • I’ve just started looking at house extensions; where do I start?

      The first question to answer is what the planned use for your home extension will be. Perhaps your galley kitchen is too tight, or the bedroom for your children is now too small.

      Consider what your home needs first. Once you’ve decided that, you can begin to look at whether a side or rear extension is appropriate for your home.

      Finally, look at the Planning Portal website to get an idea of the permitted development and potential obstacles to your build. We’ll try to take care of the rest.

  • What extensions can I do without planning permission?

      There is a surprising amount that you can do with permitted development. First, you may need to start measuring your property and the plans for your extension. Within permitted development, you can build an extension:

      • 6 metres away from the property line, when single storey, or 8 metres away from the property line, when double storey.
      • As long as the single storey extension is below 3 metres high. Or 4 metres within 2 metres of the side of the property.
      • The extension is not over half the property width for a side extension.
      • As long as the extension is not to the front of the house.

      There are a few other restrictions, however, these basics cover a great deal of permitted development.

  • What are your coverage areas?

      We work in Park Gate, Portsmouth, Southampton, Fareham, Havant, Chichester and Guildford, but we can and do travel further for large projects.
