Internal Alterations

Need to remove an internal wall? Want to install an extra toilet or shower room? Like to install an extra window or french doors ?

Home Extension Designs have many great Internal Alterations ideas to help you better enjoy your home without the need for extending.

By remodelling the existing space, Home Extension Designs know how to make the best use of the available area.

Adding a utility room or toilet and shower area, removing or indeed building/reinstating a previously removed wall or even moving a door, can make a huge difference to the enjoyment of your home. Internal Alterations will not need planning permission but will require Building Regulation Approval.

This can be achieved through a Building Notice procedure, without the need for drawings – a simple process of filling in an application form and paying the Council a fee. The work is inspected by the Council and an approval given.

For more complicated Internal Alterations – removing a load bearing wall, installing a toilet, etc – it is recommended that Home Extension Designs prepare a detailed construction drawing, which will be of use for obtaining competitive builders prices and gain Full Building Regulation approval off of the Council.

If a structural engineer is needed to design a steel beam to replace a load bearing wall Home Extension Designs will arrange this for you, based on our detailed drawings.
