Home Extensions

When we hear the word "extension" we think "building onto" or "making larger." It's true that "extension" covers a broad range of home modifications. And each extension project is as unique as the homeowner’s vision. But at the core of all home extensions are two essential benefits: adding space and adding value. A well-designed extension not only enhances current living space, the extra room may even lift the property into another price bracket.

Some of the most common uses for home extensions include home office, bedroom with en-suite bathroom, garden room, conservatory, self-contained second residence, and family space, to name just a few.

No matter what your motive, extending a home or garage is a complex undertaking. At Bird Properties we specialize in residential extensions, as well as conversions and refurbishments. Our home extension experts manage the entire process, and every detail, with minimum disruption to your household.

The Extension Process

The first step is to review your property and where you propose to extend. Bird Properties know what can and cannot be constructed. Different extension types (for example, rear house extension, single storey, double storey, multi-storey or garage) present different engineering and design challenges. There may be local planning restrictions and impact on your neighbours to consider, as well. Not to worry, though. We often come up with solutions you wouldn’t have dreamed of on your own!

Bird Properties will guide you through the building planning application (including knowing whether your project requires permits) to ensure that your plans are approved by planning authority in your local council.
