Adding an extension to your home is a great way to add extra space where your existing home no longer big enough for your needs. There are many reasons why you might like to add an extension to your home. These include extending your kitchen, adding an extra living or dining area, adding an extra bedroom, adding an office or adding a play area to name a few. If well planned with the help of an architect, adding an extension can also be a good opportunity to let more light into your home, improve the energy rating and reduce your heating bill.
Recently we did a House Extension Cost Survey with some of our tradesmen.

there are lots of advantages of having a nice garden for your home. The physical activity required to maintain a garden is good for your body and for your health. Spending time in the garden is a great way to reduce stress and anxiety so it is good for the mind as well. Encouraging kids to spend time outdoors in the garden is good for their health as well and will lead to better sleep and better performance in school. Growing vegetables in the garden will result in you and your family eating healthier food. You can create family time together with your kids by planning, sowing, and tending to the family garden resulting in physical activity with a purpose shared by everyone.
