Eco-responsible home extension tips

Needs change over a lifetime, and a family may find itself needing more space without necessarily wanting to move. Building an extension can be a good solution to this problem, but remember, extensions can cost tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars.+Having a bigger house means having a smaller yard, and it also increases energy consumption. The loss of green space can make thermal islands worse and reduce your quality of life, so it’s important to make some carefully considered eco-responsible choices. Adding an extension demands thorough planning based on real needs and a budget. Certain environmental objectives should also be considered, such as reducing resource use and waste production.

For a well-planned extension project, please see the “Before you get started” section.
