You are looking at this page because like many others you dream of having the house you always wanted: a custom built home that reflects who you are, the needs of your family, is spacious, well designed and built, environmentally efficient and value for money.
Many people are put off because they believe so many things stand in their way: finding suitable land in the right place, the planning system, difficult finance, the hard work and most importantly, the risk.
Curve Build is a highly experienced development company, dedicated to helping you get involved and build your own home in a way that suits you.
Initially we help you find self build plots for sale:
- in locations where you want to live;
- at a price which is affordable compared with other new build homes;
- in locations which have access to shops, schools, open space and public transport;
- with all connections to utilities provided;
- with detailed planning consent to provide financial and planning certainty;
- using our expertise and advice to help people make your self build project happen.
Once you have chosen the right development and plot for you, there are several ways to get your custom home:
Create a unique house by customising the permitted design and choosing from a large range of exterior and interior materials options agreed as part of design code with the planning authority.
Gain a detailed planning permission for your own unique design (but within the context of the approved design code), with the confidence that the principle of residential development has already been secured for the plot. Whichever option is for you, we are here to assist you in your chosen journey.
Whether you are looking to extend for a new kitchen, extra living space or to add an additional bedroom to your home, we can help not only with the build but also with cost effective designs and ideas to both extend and also increase the value of your home.
If your looking for a small single storey extension or a much larger double wrap around extension, we are more than happy to meet up with you at your convenience for a no obligation chat and free quotation. Typically our quotations will fall between £1000 & £1200 per square meter (plus VAT)
How much will it cost?
Generally the cost will be between £1000 and £1200 plus VAT per square meter. This obviously dependant on a number of factors, single or two storey, bathroom or kitchen fittings to be included and the overall design specification.
How long will it take to complete the extension?
From our first day on site, a single storey extension will typically take between 6 and 8 weeks with a two storey extension typically between 8 and 10 weeks.
Do I need planning permission for my extension?
This is dependant on lots of factors, your local authority will advise you on this or we can investigate for you if you preferred. Typically if the extension effects the outlook of your neighbours then permission will be required, however if you are looking at a single storey extension to the rear then there is a good chance that no permission will be required.
