If you desperately need more space in your home, there’s no need to pack up and put the house on the market. Property owners are less inclined to move these days, opting instead to experiment with structural additions such as rear facing house extensions and bespoke garden rooms. Newman & Sons is a building and landscaping company in Hove, and continuously growing a satisfied customer base in Lewes and East Sussex.
Our team of builders can create the perfect extension for you, and our landscapers complement the new addition with a garden design that will merge both home and outdoor space effortlessly.
We have a large range of exterior constructs for you to choose from, including our bespoke garden rooms. The following are some of the more popular designs Newman & Sons promote as part of our rear facing house extensions portfolio:
Light-Filled Walls – By using bi-fold doors and full-length windows, these extensions are permanently filled with natural light and use a solar reflective coating to prevent overheating. Doubling the height of the glass walls to include an atrium will dramatically illuminate the interior.
Mix The Old With The New – Adding a contemporary extension to your period home in Hove, Lewes or the surrounding areas can enhance the overall look of the property, giving it a new lease of life. Consider blending complementary brickwork with bi-fold doors and timber cladding for that wow factor.
Extend Up and Out – Double-height extensions not only add extra square footage, they can increase the overall value of your property. Our builders suggest modern ground floor blockwork with upper-level timber cladding as a popular extension solution for semi-detached properties.
As a landscaping company, we love to see timber cladding and decking outdoors. The two enhance the overall look of your home, combining both structure and land beautifully.
Be Sympathetic – Some period properties will benefit from a traditional addition rather than a contemporary one. By adding a wood frame extension to a stone cottage, for example, the property’s natural structure remains intact. Full-length windows will add light without compromising the look.
Or Be Very Bold! – Should your Hove, Lewes or East Sussex property stand out from the crowd? If so, the builders at Newman & Sons’ can construct new rear facing house extensions from pre-coloured zinc. How about treated or weathered copper for that timeless look instead?
Rules for planning permission have eased somewhat recently but, whichever type of extension you decide upon, make sure to check if you need to complete the paperwork or not.
A renowned landscaping company serving Hove, Lewes and the surrounding areas, Newman & Sons goes that extra mile to ensure your new house extension blends seamlessly with your garden. Our builders will carry out the hard landscaping, installing pathways, decking, patios, steps, rockeries, retaining walls and water features.
