Research has revealed three main reasons why families are seeking more space; 1. Children staying at home well into adulthood 2. Couples moving in with parents while saving for their future, and 3. Home owners wanting a better life style. Traditionally these scenarios resulted in a knock down-rebuild project or the traditional sell-purchase-relocate option, but now it seems that in today's day and age the trend is to extend. Extensions of today's era give home owners exciting flexibility in addressing the need for more space. This flexibility can been seen as one of the major driving forces which enables customised designs to be matched with available budgets. In many cases it has been found that older homes that are in need of improvement and more space have immediate equity that can fund a typical extension project. A well designed and constructed extension will solve the space issues, improve the quality of living and indeed have potential to add value to the property. Extending can mean; adding a room that opens up much needed space with materials that blend in with the existing house or, adding numerous rooms and additions to re-create the entire architectural style and feel of a home.
