Star let­ter Ren­o­va­tion rev­e­la­tion

Build It - - LETTERS -

We have just com­pleted a kitchen ex­ten­sion in our pre­vi­ously dreary two bed­room dwelling. The orig­i­nal home was very much un­suit­able for our needs, and for a long time we had our hearts set on mov­ing. Un­for­tu­nately, it was a real strug­gle to find a house that ticked all the boxes in our area. We started to con­sider ex­tend­ing, and af­ter a few hes­i­ta­tions, fi­nally took the plunge. The re­sults are ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic – we thor­oughly en­joy spend­ing time here now. I would se­ri­ously urge any­one to con­sider whether re­work­ing their cur­rent prop­erty could be a bet­ter op­tion than leav­ing – and if you de­cide to move in the fu­ture, your house could be worth more, too!

Editor’s re­sponse: Con­grat­u­la­tions on com­plet­ing your project. A thought­fully de­signed ex­ten­sion can add so much value to a prop­erty – both in terms of its mar­ket worth and your life­style, es­pe­cially if you are happy in the area in which you al­ready re­side.
