In this blog post, we'll delve deep into the rules and regulations surrounding single storey rear extensions, drawing from our extensive experience at STAAC, particularly our successful project in Surrey.
The beauty of a single storey rear extension lies in its simplicity and functionality. It's a straightforward way to add more room to your home without the complexities of a full-blown renovation or the need to move to a larger property. Whether it's to accommodate a larger kitchen, a new dining area, or simply a more spacious living room, these extensions can transform the dynamics of a home.
Moreover, beyond the immediate benefits of added space, such extensions can significantly boost the market value of a property. It's an investment that often pays for itself, especially in bustling property markets.
In Surrey, we worked on a notable project that showcased our expertise. The task was to modernize a home through a design that integrated well with its current structure.
We opted for a single storey rear extension, which enlarged the home's space and introduced a new open-plan kitchen. This functional area provided a place for family gatherings and entertainment. This project highlights the practical benefits of single storey rear extensions.
When planning a single storey rear extension, it's crucial to consider the Party Wall Agreement. If your extension is to be built up to or near the boundary of your property, you may need to notify your neighbors under the Party Wall etc. Act 1996. This agreement ensures that any work carried out does not adversely affect the adjoining properties and that all parties are protected.
Understanding the planning permissions and building regulations is paramount. Here's a brief overview:
To conclude, single storey rear extensions open a realm of potential,especially for homeowners of terraced houses in this area. Our transformative design in Surrey, along with numerous other projects, underscores STAAC's deep-rooted expertise in this field.
