    Really like the first floor; is it a window or a door? How does it open and where is sourced from? Thanks

      Transform a side returnIdea 2: Go for a modern twistJust as with the larger house examples described above, the choice of matching or contrasting and classic or contemporary design is very much open. Here, a very modern approach has been adopted with the bottom corner of the original brick wall having been cut away to create an asymmetrical composition. A deliberately thin line of construction denoting the new side wall and roof – to almost look like a simple folded panel – has been used with a great deal of glass to play the visual weight of the original against the lightweight nature of the addition.

      Know when to ask for a quoteThe most common mistake I see is people asking a builder for a price too soon, before the information they have properly spells out what it is the builder should be quoting for.Of course, it’s quite possible for a builder to build something from a sketch on the back of a cigarette packet, but it will be impossible for them to price such work accurately in advance and you will have very little control over what you’re going to get for your money.You may also want to get a few different builders to price for the work and, if so, it’s really important to be absolutely clear about exactly what they are pricing, otherwise you won’t be able to compare like for like.

      Understand what precedent really meansA common assumption people make is that they will have no problem getting planning for what they want, because other houses in the street have already had such changes. However, such precedent often doesn’t count for much. For a start, if the other houses have had those features for some time, planning policy in that regard may well have changed. Some neighbours, for example, may have roof terraces that might never have gone through planning, but if they’ve been in use for long enough, they could be deemed to be ‘established’. This does not mean planning will allow you a similar roof terrace. See ways to make the most of a side return extension
