Architectural Extension DesignRequest a Quote
Duncan Thompson Extensions are specialist designers and builders of quality home extensions. Only a specialist extension company knows what your extension will cost to build and how long it will take to complete.
Architecture by definition is "The art or practice of designing and constructing buildings." Importantly it is the style in which a building is designed or constructed, especially with regard to a specific period, place, or culture. There has and always will be good architecture and not so good. This is the same for house extension design.
Dedicated to great design
At Duncan Thompson Extensions we ensure our design not only delivers on your expectations, but also complements your home, with total consideration for your home's period, place and culture.
Do I need an Architect to Design my Extension?
You do not need an Architect to design your home extension. An architect will design your extension based on your needs and wants, but they won't know whether their design is accurate to your budget. They are not estimators. Because of this, an extension designed by an independent architect may exceed your budget dramatically, but you won't know this until you've already paid all the architect fees and go searching for a builder. At Duncan Thompson Extensions you will have a accurate designs and a quote within weeks of the very first meeting.
Who do you talk to and where do you find the right people?
Anyone who's built a house before understands that home builders have their own display homes for you to visit to get an idea of what they offer. Extension builders are different. An extension builder is a specialist at what they do, they build extensions, not houses. There are no places to go to see a range of different extensions on display. All their work is now a part of someone's home, it's attached. This can make choosing an extension builder a little more difficult.
When we first informed friends and family that we were going to undertake a home renovation everyone had a story to tell about their own personal experiences with building and renovating. We were pleasantly surprised to find that our renovation journey was relatively easy, stress-free and we are very happy with the end product.
