If you are thinking of improving your home but want the real story of how to be successful, this richly illustrated and completely up-to-date book is for you.

The book is a practical guide for homeowners, with checklists and guidance on how to make their project successful. Most people considering a significant alteration to their home have no experience or knowledge of the process that has to be followed to make their project successful, and the consequences of things going wrong are serious.

As with the first edition, this fully-revised guide distils all of the practical information needed to run a project from dream to reality, highlighting the pitfalls along the way and suggesting ways to avoid them. Peppered with inspirational case studies and giving indications of costs and timescales, Home Extension Design 2e demystifies both the building process and all the surrounding issues to do with design, sustainability, budgeting, planning, regulations and the use of building contracts. This book is the essential go-to resource for reliable, independent advice on how to set up and run a building project.

It distils all the practical information needed to run a project from dream to reality, highlighting the pitfalls along the way and suggesting ways to avoid them. Peppered with inspirational case studies and giving indications of costs and timescales, Home Extension Design demystifies both the building process and all the surrounding issues to do with design, sustainability, budgeting, planning, regulations and the use of building contracts.

The comprehensive guidance includes chapters on making the best of what you've got, designing the changes to your home, types of house alteration projects (including extensions, loft conversions and basements), submitting applications to the local authority, and getting the building work done.

A vastly experienced self-build architect used to directing and responding to his clients briefs, the author has a well-honed understanding of home improvers needs.

The book has been carefully crafted to offer friendly, jargon-free guidance full of hints, tips and watchpoints to answer all your home extension questions.
