House extension design examples

A great source of obtaining a sample of house design examples is to search for house extension designers and architects on the internet. Most architectural practices will have a previous projects gallery for prospective clients viewing their selected work.

Each practice will give you a flavour of previously completed house extension design work which should be wide ranging in design styles. Some practices specialise in modern or contemporary designs while others may specialise in historic buildings. However, you are not using this exercise to select a planning and building design consultant but simply looking at their previous work sample photos to obtain some inspiration for your own home extension scheme.

House extension design examples can also be sourced from most councils planning departments offering public access via their web sites. This can be a very time consuming process going from application to application and drilling down into the pdf drawings for each scheme but it is another source of house extension design examples.

Go walkabout around your local area with a ken eye. Something like 30% of all current homes older than 15 years have been extended. Take your camera and snap away at the house extension examples you like. Don’t just focus on the overall extension shape and format but look at any detailing elements of eaves, verges, roof and wall lines or abutments for example. Again zoom in on the details that you do and do not like.

Buy using any or all of the above research methods you can create a pretty good swatch of previous and proposed house extension design examples that you can then use, adapt or dispel in association with your final selected house extension designer.
