The home is an important part of life. If you own your own landed property, you will surely be very much interested in designing your own space. You want your house to reflect your personality and to showcase what you have and such. That is why some houses are so much better designed than others.
Some houses look larger than others because of the way they are designed. By replacing a pillar with a thinner beam or using a certain type of color scheme, you could create an impression of a larger house. However, this can only facilitate a finite way of looking at your home. Another method is to build extensions.
Building extensions can be quite costly depending on the size and what you want to do. Extensions include building a longer porch, a larger kitchen or even a protruding balcony. This is something that can be done in many ways because it is up to the designer’s creativity and your requirements.
Everyone would want a bigger house with bigger spaces but this cannot be done the way you deem fit. If you are planning to build an extension in your house whether internally or externally, you will need to obtain the approval from the relevant authorities. This must be submitted together with the blueprint of your design.
Once you have the approval, then construction can start. Without the approval, anything you do is deemed illegal and you could face a summons with the extension being torn down. Hence, to avoid such problems, the approval must be the first thing you do. On top of that, if you build an extension without approval and someone was injured during construction, you could be charged in court.
Most contractors will require seeing the approval from the authorities prior to building the construction for you. They will usually hold a copy of the document as officers might be around to check on them in the process of building the extension. Do not believe any contractors who claim that they can build the structure for you without any approval as you will be breaking the law.
