House Extension Cyprus
CYPRUS HOUSE EXTENSIONS
Building the most stunning house extensions in Cyprus necessitates two key ingredients: a client with a vision and the proper team of architects, builders, and interior designers to turn that vision into a marble-edged, fabric-matched, open-plan, high-tech, bi-fold lighted reality. BCA Property Developer in Cyprus has exactly such a team, so what are your property extension ambitions?
EXTENSIONS TO AN ELEGANT CYPRUS HOUSE
Move outwards, not outwards. If you have outgrown your current home, extend expanding. It is now far easier than ever to build a contemporary kitchen extension, fully equipped home gym, orangery leisure area, or open-plan gathering space for limitless family meals and parties with friends. When combined with a refurbishment of the remainder of your home, you may live somewhere completely new without having to relocate.
Our on-site assessment includes a detailed examination of your house extension goals, structural aspects of your home, and the viability of your ideas.
Although not all extensions require planning permission, all extension builders in Cyprus should be aware of the possibility of requiring local authority consent and the best way to obtain clearance for you.
As your dedicated project manager, one of our senior consultants will be assigned to you as your point of contact throughout the build and the individual responsible for organising all parts of your project.
If your extension is going to be built near your neighbor’s property line, it’s worth contacting our staff if you’ll require a party wall agreement. If you do, we can assist you in navigating this procedure.
Once your build is completed, we will supply you with a file containing all of your documentation, from your completion certificate from the local authority’s building control officer to the manufacturer’s documents for all of the equipment we install for you.
Building a house extension is one of the most exciting and enjoyable jobs. We are ready to begin after the necessary measurements have been gathered, a design has been agreed, blueprints have been drawn up, and planning permission has been obtained. Here are some ideas and the most popular forms of house extensions so you may pick the one you want:
MANY TYPES OF HOUSE EXTENSIONS
- Single-story or rear-extension home extensions
- Extensions that are two or more stories tall
- Basement or cellar conversions
- Home extensions that wrap around
- Kitchen extensions
- Outbuildings, orangeries, and conservatories
Porches are tiny extensions to a house’s front. They might be larger and built to the side or back of the house. Simple structures with merely brick walls, columns, windows, and a door are typical examples. Larger versions might be bare brick or plastered, with a full electrical installation. As a result, the porch might feature lighting and electrical outlets.
The majority of porches do not require planning permission. They will not require building certification as long as the porch is isolated from the house by an internal door and is not heated. If you want electrics installed, you must do one of the following:
- Have the work inspected by the building department or use a Part P registered electrician.
They are simple constructions made of UPVC, wood, or aluminium. Some conservatories require planning permission, while others do not, but the same restrictions apply to porches as they do to conservatories.
A sunroom is a conservatory with a solid roof extension and walls that include plenty of glazing. They are strong and warm, while also letting in a lot of light. Because the expenses and complexity are more than for a wrap-around conservatory, it is best to hire both an architectural firm and an experienced building business.
For Planning Permission, the rules for sunrooms are similar to those for conservatories. Permission from building control will be required.
EXTENSION OF A SINGLE-STORY HOUSE
Single-story house extensions are built onto a portion of a house, with one or more sides of the extension attached to the property and only the bottom floor plus any basement erected onto it. Building control is required for single-story extensions, but planning permission may not be required.
The installation of a Single Storey Side Extension can significantly increase the value of your home. Some of the possibilities for your home extension include:
- a dining area
- A home office, a new bedroom, a playroom, a new kitchen, and a utility area
The size of the extension, how the roof will function with the existing building, and the influence on neighbours are the most important concerns for this sort of extension. Other potential issues include the locations of drains and chimneys, as well as any excavations that may be required.
REAR EXTENSION WITH A SINGLE STOREY
When enough space is available, a single-story rear extension has the ability to completely transform the appearance of your house. Internal property renovations such as opening up your kitchen to your back garden and creating an open-plan area that can be utilised as a combined kitchen, dining, and living area are examples of this type of house extension idea. You will benefit from the increased size of your property if you choose this option. You will significantly improve its value. This form of house extension can be used to enhance the space in your rooms or to change or reorganise how you use the interior floor space.
A well-designed and built side extension will appear and feel like a natural extension of your home rather than a foreign entity.
EXTENSION OF TWO OR MULTI-STORIES
Any component of the current building can be extended with a multi-story extension.
A two-story side extension can be utilised to add a bedroom or bathroom. You can design a dining area with a stunning ceiling height.
The prices are higher than for a single-story house extension due to its complexity. The effect on neighbours is far more severe. Only detached or semi-detached residences with a side plot or garden can have a two-story extension.
The higher the value, the larger the scope of the extension. This form of house extension will necessitate the acquisition of planning permission.
WRAP AROUND THE EXTENSION OF THE HOUSE
Wrap around extensions are made by merging a side return extension and a rear extension, resulting in an L-shaped wrap around extension. They entail building the side wall closer to the next building’s boundary and relocating your property’s back wall into the back garden, resulting in an L-shaped house extension.
You might opt for an open plan wraparound extension to create a more expansive and well-lit space. A wrap-around house could be ideal if you want to redesign a whole floor, increase the size of your kitchen, add a dining room, extend your living room, or construct an extra bedroom or guest room.
Other advantages of this type of extension include increased flexibility and a significant boost in the value of your home. You can calculate your value using a calculator.
There are several ideas and things to consider when planning a wrap-around extension, such as the overall design balance of your home and the more disruptive character of this form of extension. A few examples include a wrap-around conservatory and an L-shaped extension.
EXTENSION OF THE STRUCTURE
An over-structure extension is an extension built on top of an existing structure, such as a garage, living/dining room, or kitchen.
Many UK residences (detached and semi-detached) built in the previous 40 years include a single-story side garage. This opens up the possibility of a second extension on top of the garage.
This style of garage extension provides numerous advantages. When compared to other sorts of extensions, such as adding a big master bedroom with an en-suite. Alternatively, a separate utility room could be added to the kitchen. Those solutions would allow you to blend in with the house’s design while keeping the existing garage.
If your present structure has single-skin brickwork, building over it will not suffice because the new brick and block construction above will be twin-leaf. If your new structure has single-skin brickwork, you can build over it by excavating down through the garage floor and installing a new foundation and inner leaf. Alternatively, you may build ‘piers’ out of blockwork in the garage and place a steel beam over the top.
You will need to dig a trial hole to assess the foundations’ conditions.
It could be a costly way to extend your property.
A building permission will very definitely be required.
