Here at Manchester Builders & Construction, we provide many home building services for our customers, one of which is a home extension. Many people have their home extended for a variety of reasons, such as building a guest bedroom for family or friends, or even if their family is growing but they do not wish to buy a new home. Others wish to get their home extended to add a room within their home that is dedicated to hobbies or even for a home cinema. We provide this service in Salford, Rusholme, Moston, Cheetham Hill, Burnage, Trafford, Stretford, Pendlebury, Failsworth, Droylsden, Prestwich, Swinton, Eccles, Withington and others.
Others in the past have extended their home for more living room or kitchen space and others decided they wanted an indoor swimming pool attached to the side of their home. Whatever the reason, here at Manchester Builders we are more than able to extend your home if there are no restrictions such as planning permissions or residential properties too close to your home.
The most popular reason for home owners to have their home extended is for an additional bedroom. When a home owner needs to have their home extended to add an additional bedroom, the common reasons are for new children or parents and friends that will come to visit overnight. As this is the most popular reason to have your home extended, we usually follow a few guidelines to make sure that you receive the additional space that you desire to be designed to match.
If you are looking for a children’s bedroom, then we will ask if you would like the room to be gender specific or not. If you would, then we will discuss a few extra requirements such as colour schemes for the walls and flooring, flooring type and more. If you are looking for a guest room for friends and family, usually we will make sure to keep the room very neutral unless you have a specific vision in mind. Again, this is still your decision but we will provide input to assist your design.
Reasons to have a home extension
Others usually want to have their home extended so they can add a home theatre/cinema and TV room. This would involve extended the home large enough to fit both a large television screen or projector screen, and enough space for four to six lounge chairs. Often this is to accommodate parents and children but again, this is down to your own specifics.
Usually we will ensure that the room itself is soundproofed for noise, which also means that we will include a sound system installed to the room. We can also add a few more design additions during the extension itself, such as carpeting and underground lighting fixtures, natural light blockers and more. This would be to give your home cinema an authentic feel.
The extension for your living room, kitchen or other living spaces is always an option. Some would like new additions to be installed or placed within these rooms and do not have the space so they need their rooms extended. This process is easier than you may think, and depending on your property type we could even add additional space within other rooms of your home such as a bedroom at the same time.

Other home extension information
Extending living spaces such as these are relatively straight forward and require extending the walls outwards to take advantage of space on land, or even to push back the walls within your home if there is a surplus elsewhere. Usually we will discuss both options with you and if you would prefer one or the other, or even if you would like both we will make sure that you approve and are satisfied with the decision.
We can also add an indoor swimming pool to your home if you need. Some like to have an indoor swimming pool due to weather restrictions and it would be easier for them to extend their home to do so. We would run through space required, pool dimensions and even the upkeep for the pool itself to ensure that you are making the correct decision before we proceed.
