They own a semi detached home which is worth about £150K with a £45K mortgage. The home is roughly 575 FT2 without the conservatory and there's a single detached garage at the rear. I've done an outline budget and reckon I can remove the conservatory, add a traditionally constructed extension and utilise the garage to form the following additional rooms downstairs
- Bedroom 3 x 2.4m
- Wet room 2.4 x 2m
- Lounge 3.45 x 3m (Replaces conservatory and will allow year round use)
I'd welcome constructive thoughts about the concept please.
In addition I've become aware of what the future holds for me and my good lady. We have one child. She's 14. Our needs aren't great. We have no debts but I'm "woefully" short on my private pension. We are working on that currently. I've always "hankered" after an extension on the rear of our home. Single storey, 12m x 5m or approximately 646 FT2. The thought was that as we aged we could "live" downstairs. Does this have legs? Again I'd welcome constructive thoughts.
