Edinburgh house extension builders such as Ekco are busier than ever. More and more home owners in the capital 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. Why move from somewhere with excellent amenities and schools when you can improve instead? Then there's the cost. A bigger mortgage is one thing - paying thousands in stamp duty in addition to your mortgage however, is another 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 in Edinburgh from SpaceKube
Which type of house extension is best for your Edinburgh home? Creating that extra room on the ground floor has traditionally been limited to a few choices such as a conservatory, sunroom or garden room. The conservatory, although beautiful to look at and relatively quick to erect tends to be limited to perhaps a dining room or an extra lounge but is rarely, if ever, used as a bedroom, kitchen or home office. A sunroom (or garden room to give it its other name) is a solid structure and can be used for a variety of purposes but it can take months to build and can involve a great deal of upheaval. 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: Ultra-Modern House Extensions in Edinburgh
The Ekco spaceKube is the ultra-modern and quick way to add an extension to your Edinburgh home. Custom-designed to suit your needs our spaceKube can give you the extra room you need. It can also be used for every purpose from a bedroom to a home office or even a home-gym, 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 the whole project as easy 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 purpose 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 that it will keep you and your family warmer in winter.
Cheaper to Build
One-stop service includes everything which means your spaceKube will cost less per square metre than your existing property but could increase the value of your home by up to 11%.
An Ekco spaceKube is constructed of the highest quality materials and is designed to 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 Edinburgh 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 in Edinburgh
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 Edinburgh 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.
