What Houzz contributors are saying:
Allow a decent budgetGlass is more expensive than bricks and other building materials. The more you wish your project to ‘disappear’ into the area around it, the more costly the system becomes. If you would like to keep costs down, choose a glazing system with “off the shelf” sizes and, if suitable, a uPVC or aluminium frame. I only say “if suitable” because, when you’re applying for Planning Permission for an extension with a new glazed door or window, you may need to specify the material the frame will be made of, and in conservation areas, you may not be allowed to use uPVC or aluminium if this isn’t used anywhere else.

Here, what would previously have been a gloomy basement below this glass extension is now flooded with natural light.What to consider when planning a basement conversion
