Amazing homes on a budget, extending an older house, Kevin McCloud’s air-con advice and more
If you want to know how to build or extend a home for as little as possible, you won’t want to miss out on the inspirational projects in the Grand Designs March 2022 issue.
There’s a four-bedroom house in Kent built for just £200,000, an overhauled three-bedroom London home for £130,000 and more. You will be amazed at how far a small amount of money can go. See the 10 brilliant low-cost projects on page 87.
Finding a way to increase limited space that’s in harmony with the character of an older house is possible. But it’s likely you’ll need expert help. You may be able to carry out the work under Permitted Development Rights (PDR).
There are instances where planning permission must be sought, however. Getting the right team together from the outset is key to success. The extensions guide on page 97 covers every aspect you’ll need to consider.
