Side Extensions in Egham, Twickenham & Weybridge

When it comes to adding to their home with an extension, too many people only consider what space is available to the rear, without thinking about the space at the side. A side house extension could extend your home’s footprint by occupying outside space you might not be currently using to its full potential.

At Highline Design & Build, we have over 20 years of experience making luxury home improvements to homes in and around Egham, Twickenham and Weybridge. With an expert team of designers, builders and craftsmen to call on, we can manage every aspect of your side extension project, from the drawings and planning you’ll need to get permission right through to completion of the build.

Small Side Extension Ideas

If you have the space for a side extension, but aren’t sure how to make best use of it, we have plenty of ideas and solutions. A kitchen side extension could allow you to create a large open plan kitchen/diner, ideal for family get-togethers, dinner parties and allowing you to spend time with the family even when you’re making their dinner!

Meanwhile, a side double storey extension can also increase your space upstairs, giving you the potential for an extra bedroom, an extra bathroom – or both. Extending over both floors also means you can get far better value per square foot out of the build.

How long will my project take?

Each project is different and the size of the build will determine the time it will take to complete; however, an average rear extension/loft conversion will take approximately six weeks from start to finish.

Will I be able to live in my property while the work goes on?

Yes, you will be able to live in the property. If this is the case, we will attempt to leave the breaking through into the house until as late as possible in the project.

Will someone be on site every day?

Yes, we will have someone on site every day. However, the caveat to this is if we are waiting on drying times or materials. That being said, we will endeavour to have a team member/team members present as much as possible to ensure the project is completed in a timely manner.

Will an extension add value to my property?

Absolutely, it is becoming more and more popular to add space to your existing property instead of the hassle and fees involved with moving. Adding additional square meterage can add up to 10-20% onto the market value.

Can you help with plans/designs?

Of course, we can offer suggestions and ideas, and show you previous projects. We can also arrange for you to visit a previous project if required. We have built relationships with trusted architects and can introduce you to our preferred contacts in order to obtain your drawings.

How long does it take to get planning permission?

It will depend upon whether you are applying for permitted planning or full planning permission. Different councils work to different timescales; however, as a guide from submission of plans it will take approximately 8-12 weeks.
