Ways to Extend your Home

Ways to Extend your Home

The Cube design has been developed with the following key functions in mind; sustainable development, prefabricated construction methods, visual impact and cost efficiency. The major benefit of The Cube extension is that it can be installed for the same cost as a glass roof conservatory, which means you get the benefit of thermal mass construction providing great energy efficiency, large glazing with bifold doors and frameless skylights, allowing maximum day light penetration and amazing opportunity for evening star gazing when relaxing or entertaining.

An extension to your house can be a easier option to moving for gaining more living space, but how much will it cost for types of extension of different sizes? As a rough idea you can typically say that it will cost 1000 per m2 or 93 per ft2 including basic plumbing and electrician work. This price is per unit area of internal floor space and so a 5x4m single floor extension will have a total floor area of 20m2 and a double storey will have 40m2.

Typically, single storey house extension costs will cost more per metre squared than a double storey. In theory a triple storey would cost less still. In practise the difference in cost may be small though. The price per square metre also depends on the size of the property. There are basic costs that dont increase too much with size and hence the cost per square metre will decrease as the floor area increases.
