Types of home adaptations
- Single storey extension – A single storey extension is a popular type of project for existing homes that need more space. It can provide sleeping and bathing facilities on the ground floor for people who have difficulties in accessing other floors in the house, or can be used to create extra space to improve access for example for wheelchair users. A single storey extension can enable people to stay in their own home for longer and can add real value to your home if properly designed.
- Garage conversion – A garage conversion is a popular type of project for properties that have the benefit of an existing garage with adequate floor space for a development into an annex. Annexes are becoming more and more popular when more living, sleeping and or bathing space is needed and can add real value to your home. A garage conversion undoubtedly has many benefits for the property owner. In most scenarios garage conversions will fall under permitted development criteria, which means it does not require an application for planning permission, provided certain limits and conditions are met.
- Internal alterations or space conversion – Making alterations to the existing space in your property can be a cost effective solution to provide easy access to all floors for example by installing a through floor lift, widening doors and installing ramps.
- Accessible bathroom – Other internal adaptations to your home can be bathroom alterations and adapting the kitchen to help you live independently in a safe environment. Internal alterations do not need planning permission but will need building regulations approval. We can handle this as part of our project management service.
