Build an extension with a budget (The Ultimate Guide)

So you must be wondering, how can I plan the extension properly so it fits within my budget? Well, here at Substructure Developments Ltd, we have listed a few points that you need to consider!

Choose the right extension size

The bigger your extension is, the more it helps increase your home's value. However if you are on a budget, you can opt in for a smaller sized extension, not only does it give you the extra space you are looking for but it is also at a price that you can afford. 

Build a cost effective extension

Another question you need to be asking yourself is whether the extension you are looking to build is cost-effective when compared to repurposing a space that is not used so much. For example, if you have a loft that is underused, you could consider getting it refurbished, so you can still get the extra space you need without the cost of building an extension.

Stick to the plan

It can often be easy to get carried away with getting upgrades or not planning your new extension properly. However certain upgrades or changes can come along with additional costs. Our professional builders recommend that you carefully plan your design, from the position of the light sockets to the materials you use.

Reduce Waste

Reducing waste helps reduce the costs. The reason for this is because there may be chance that you have over ordered material. To avoid this, ensure you have an accurate plan in place with all the correct measurements that you may need before any building work starts.
