Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between us and a project home builder?
The difference is that project home builders build the same house over & over. By building with us, we can customise every aspect & tailor it to your exact needs. Your home will be unique building with us.
I’m not sure about the budget, is this important?
As the home owner you will have an idea of how much you are able to borrow to carry out the build. We need to know this so we can advise you it’s realistic. We will be honest and upfront with you so you don’t waste your time & money if the build is unrealistic.
I don’t have plans and I’m not sure where to start?
To start the process of obtaining a quote from us you can fill in your information on the contact us tab on the homepage. Once your contact information has been entered it will take you through to our questionnaire where we ask you for some building details which will help us to assist you. We also have a couple of draftsmen that we regularly use for the design process if you don’t already have someone in mind, it’s totally up to you.
How much does a ground floor extension or first floor addition cost?
There are many variables involved when quoting a ground floor extension or addition. No two quotes will be the same so it’s hard for us to provide an accurate m2 cost until we have gone through the enquiry process and discussed the different materials and finishes to suit your needs.
Is it better to extend up or out?
It is easier to build a first-floor addition because we are building on top of the existing home, so we don’t use any valuable yard space. With a ground floor extension, there are more costs involved with groundworks. Eg. digging, concrete etc.
When constructing a first-floor addition we don’t need to enter your existing home until upstairs is locked and watertight which is when we need to install the stairs. This minimises the dust and disruption to you and your family while you are still living in the home.
How long does the build take?
Generally we say its approximately 3 months for first floor additions or extension and 6 months for new builds. Every project is different, but from the start when we sit down & provide you with a quote we will also give you a timeframe for which we will have your home completed.
