Top tips to cut the cost of your home extension

  • Generally, the most cost-effective floor plan is square, so choose a simple design and keep to it.
  • Hire an architect to produce your planning and building regulations drawings for a fixed, all-inclusive price.
  • Hire a reputable builder who is recommended by friends or family and get the price agreed in advance based on those drawings and specifications.
  • If you have the time and basic skills, consider being your own project manager and if you have good DIY skills, do some of the more basic work yourself, such as decoration.
  • Buy second hand / reclaimed materials where possible subject to product suitability.
  • Finally, employ a reputable, helpful Approved Inspector such as us. We work with your designer and builder to make sure your project fully complies with the Building Regulations.
