Spreading Out: Where to Extend or Gain Space in Your House

If you are thinking about extending your home, I assume you need more space. First, consider all the ways your house could be adapted to achieve your desires; there may be restrictions according to the type of house you have. If it’s a heritage home, for example, there could be limitations on building works or materials, especially to the facade facing the street. The position of your house on the site – front, middle or rear – can also significantly impact how you might be able to extend, and the site’s topography is a further consideration. A level site can be more accommodating to an extension than one with a steep slope.
