Livingston house extension builders such as Ekco are busier than ever. More and more home owners in West Lothian are discovering the benefits of adding an extension, conservatory, sunroom, or garden room to their properties to acquire that much-needed extra space instead of moving to a bigger home. Why is this?
The main reason is location. Livingston and other areas in West Lothian have excellent amenities and schools so why move elsewhere when you can improve instead? Then there's the cost. A bigger mortgage is one thing - paying thousands in stamp duty however, is another thing entirely and it can, quite rightly, put people off. So what are your alternatives to getting the extra space you need without moving home?
The Best House Extension for Your Livingston home
Which type of house extension is best for your Livingston home? Creating an extra room is generally limited to a few option such as a conservatory, garden-room or sunroom. The conservatory, although beautiful to look at and relatively quick to build can be limited to perhaps an extra lounge or a dining room but is rarely, if ever, used as a kitchen, bedroom or home office. A garden room (or sunroom to give it its other name) usually less windows and is therefore a more solid structure.
This means it can be more adaptable but on the downside it can take months to build and can involve a great deal of upheaval in the process. There is however, a brand new alternative on the market that can give you the extra space you need for a much lower cost than either moving home or building a traditional house extension. Introducing the Ekco spaceKube.
Ekco SpaceKube: The Modern Home Extension Designers in Livingston
The Ekco spaceKube is the ultra-modern and speedy way to add an extension to your Livingston home. Custom-designed to suit your needs our spaceKube can give you the extra room you need. Extremely versatile it can give you many more options such as an additional bedroom or a home office for your budding new enterprise, usually for a lower cost than a traditional extension or moving home. Here's what you get when you invest in an Ekco spaceKube:
Our spaceKube One-Stop Service has been created to make adding an extension to your West Lothian home as easy and convenient for you as possible. We will design your spaceKube according to its initial purpose and your current needs – however, its versatility means you can easily adapt it for a different use when you need to at a later date.
We will liaise on your behalf with architects and planning departments (although not always required with our spaceKube). We will then pre-manufacture your spaceKube offsite in our purpose built workshop, lay the foundations and finally erect your spaceKube which will come complete with the highest quality finishes. The whole project will take around 4-6 weeks from the manufacturing process to completion rather than months and with very little disruption to your daily routine throughout.
Warmer than Brick
A spaceKube has a higher U-Value rating than a brick-built extension which means your home will be warmer in winter. However, if you opt for bifold doors then when summer comes round you can open them up and let in more light and air to your home.
Cheaper to Build
Our One-Stop Service gives you the total package which means your spaceKube will cost less per square metre than your existing Livingston property but could increase the value of your home by up to 11%.
An Ekco spaceKube is made from the highest quality materials and will look as beautiful in years to come as it does today.
Choice of Exterior Finishes
Your spaceKube can be designed to either blend in with your Livingston property or offer a modern contrast to a more traditional home. The exterior finishes include premium-grade, eco-friendly wood such as larch or cedar cladding. We can also render the external walls or add conventional harling should you prefer it.
Ekco SpaceKube Home Extension Costs
An Ekco spaceKube should be regarded as an investment rather than a cost. How much you’re prepared to invest will depend on whether you would like finishes such as a new German-built kitchen, bifold doors, triple-glazing and so on. However, as a rough guide a standard 6m x 3m spaceKube for an average semi-detached Livingston or West Lothian property using our complete one-stop service will require an investment of around £27,000. An 8m x 4m spaceKube for an average detached home will cost around £45,000 fully completed.
