What is a Single Storey Extension?
A single storey extension is a type of home extension that adds extra living space to your home on a single level. This type of extension is perfect for homeowners who want to add more living space without taking away too much from their outdoor space. Some common types of single storey extensions include rear extensions, side extensions, and wrap- around extensions. These extensions can be designed to blend seamlessly with your existing home and can be used for a variety of purposes to suit your way of life.


Benefits of Single Storey Extensions

There are many benefits to choosing a single storey extension for your home, including:

More living space:

A single storey extension can significantly increase your home’s living space, giving you more room to entertain guests, work from home, or simply relax and enjoy our surroundings.

Customisable design:

With a single storey extension you can customise the design to suit your family’s needs and build an extension that will future proof your home. Whether you want an open-plan living area or something designed more around individual areas we can bring your dream to reality.


a single storey extension is a cheaper option then a double storey extension so if you wish to keep your costs lower than this may be a better option for you.

Increased home value:

By adding more space and functionality to your home your home should increase in value plus make it more attractive to any prospective purchasers.

Regulations for Single Storey Extensions

Before you decide to go ahead with a single storey extension, it’s important to be aware of the regulations that govern this type of work. Some items to be aware of are:

Planning permission:

In most cases, you will need to obtain planning permission from your local council before starting your single storey extension project. This will ensure that your extension meets local planning regulations and will not negatively impact the surrounding environment.

Building regulations:

All building work in the UK must comply with building regulations to ensure that it is safe and structurally sound. This includes single storey extensions. We have extensive experience in complying with building regulations and will ensure that your extension meets all necessary standards.

Party wall agreements:

If your single storey extension will affect a shared wall with a neighbour, you will need to comply with party wall agreements. This ensures that your work will not damage the shared wall or the neighbouring property. We can help you navigate this process and ensure that all necessary agreements are in place before work begins.

Costs of Single Storey Extensions

The cost of your single storey extension will depend on a variety of factors, including the size and complexity of the project, the materials used, and the location of your property. Here are some factors to consider when estimating the cost of your single storey extension project:


The design of your single storey extension will play a major role in determining its cost. The more complex the design, the more expensive it is likely to be. However, we can work with you to create a design that meets your needs and your budget.


The materials used for your single storey extension can also impact the cost. For example, a timber extension will generally be less expensive than a glass extension. However, different materials offer different benefits, and we can help you choose the right materials for your project.


The location of your property can also affect the cost of your single storey extension. For example, if your property is in an area with high labour costs, you may need to budget more for the work.

Site conditions:

The condition of your site can also affect the cost of your single storey extension. For example, if your site requires extensive groundwork or has difficult access, the cost may be higher.


Finally, the timeframe for your extension will also affect the cost. The longer the project takes, the more you’ll need to budget for labour costs. We understand that cost is an important consideration for our clients. That’s why we work closely with our clients to find a solution that meets their needs and their budget. We provide transparent pricing and will keep you informed of any additional costs throughout the project.
