A Home that Keeps Growing? There's Nothing Magic About it!

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

We all want to find our forever home. You know; that place where we can grow old. Every house move is an attempt to get closer to that space. And, each time, we think we’ve found it. But then, circumstances change and that forever home doesn’t look like it’ll work anymore.

One such change is that you need more space. It’s never nice when we outgrow our homes. It can happen for a variety of reasons. It may be that you have another family member on the way. Or, maybe you’ve changed work and need a study or office space. Whatever the reason, the prospect of moving is never nice. Aside from the fact that you considered this your forever home, there are the costs. And, one thing you can be sure of is that a bigger house is going to come with a larger price tag. But, what if we were to tell you that you could stay where you are, and still have more space. All it takes a little out of the box thinking!

Outside Space

Outside space is the best way to make more room in your house. If you already have an outhouse, turn it into a living space. With a little work, you could add a few new rooms this way. You could even convert it into an annexe. If you’re going down this route, make sure to get appropriate permissions. You’ll need to declare that you’ll be using the space as residential. If you’re not extending, though, getting permission shouldn’t be difficult. If you don’t have an outhouse to play with, consider building your own. There’s no denying that this won’t come cheap, but it’ll be a lot cheaper than moving house. And, you don’t need to go all out. You can make the space as small or large as you want it. As long as you know your budget, it’s a goal you should be able to achieve.

Think Cost

Talking of budget, it’s important you consider how you’re going to pay for the extra space. Making space may well be cheaper than buying a new house, but it’s still going to cost you. Even so, something like a new arrival will not wait for you to save enough money. If you’re working to a time limit, it may be necessary to look into loans for home improvement to ensure you can afford the work. It’s also worth shopping around for the cheapest deals, and doing as much work yourself as possible. Any savings are worth making.

Make the Most of Every Room

If an outhouse build isn’t on the cards, it’s important you make the most of every room. It’ll surprise you how much extra space this can afford you. If it’s an office you’re after, turn your spare room into a sleeping/working area with the incorporation of a sofa bed. Clearing out the clutter in spaces like the garage will also give you a lot more room to play with.
