Tips on extending your home.

Tip 1: Think about natural light. Extensions often increase the floorspace of your home but block light into the middle of the building. Courtyards, rooflights and clever planning can avoid creating problems in the existing parts of your home when you extend it.

Tip 2: Your garden is an extension of your home. Make the most of it by thinking careful about orientation, where does the morning light enter your house? How do you get into the garden? Does your garden make you feel better about the rooms next to it?
