Eastbourne Home Extensions

If you’re looking to add some much needed space (and value) to your home, building an extension is one of the most popular home improvement projects to take on.






From how much building an extension will cost through to planning permission, the design and finance, there’s a lot to consider to make sure your extension meets your needs and passes planning. This short guide will cover everything you need to know when building an extension, including:

  • How much does an extension cost?

  • As with any project, the cost of your extension will come down to a number of factors, including size, specification and location.

  • Depending where you are in the UK, for a straightforward extension you should allow around £1,000–£2,000/m2.

  • A single-storey extension will cost the following per/m2:

  • Basic quality: £1,010 to £1,690

  • Good quality: £1,690 to £1,930

  • Excellent quality: £1,930 to £2,170

  • Remember: Be mindful of ceiling prices in your area — you’ll want to make a return on the money you spend on an extension so make sure the numbers add up.




  • A two-storey extension will not cost much more per square metre because, aside from the extra interior fixtures and finishes, you are only adding walls and floor joists — a roof and foundations are required whether your extension is single or two

  • storey.

  • Will I need planning permission for my extension?

  • An extension or addition to your house is considered to be permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, subject to the following limits and conditions: No more than half the area of land around the "original house"* would be covered by additions or other buildings.

  • You may need more information on building regulations and building design before you start, so talk to us about what you want to do.

Is Building an Extension the Right Move?

Moving house costs money — there are agent fees, legal fees, stamp duty, as well as the premium for that desired extra bedroom or bigger kitchen diner.

For the same price, you might well find that you can build a decent extension, adding both space and value to your existing home in the process.
