Advice about single story extensions
We are looking at extending our semi detached house out the back via a single storey 3m wide by 4 m long. we would want double doors on one side a window at the end and a tiled roof . Can you please supply me with any ideas and advice about the best way to go about it - single builder to do all or seperate foundation , bricky , windows and roofer then a plasterer . I look forward to your advice and feedback
Depends on how much you want to manage the project.
If you don't mind doing a bit of organising and shopping around you would be good to find all the skilled men yourself and co-ordinate it all.
If you just want a fixed price and someone to take it all out of your hands you should use a main contractor, less stress!!!

Find a "builder" on this site. Pay him 25k to 35k and let him do his thing. I get calls twice a day pertaining to self managed builds going wrong.
And if it goes wrong, few decent builders want to get involved to take over.
