Building Extension Ideas
We can help with many different types of house extensions:
- Single storey building extensions – kitchen/meals area, living rooms, extra bedrooms.
- Second storey extension – a new living area, bedrooms, a study.
- Addition of a sunroom, conservatory or pool house.
- Over-structure extensions – an office, bedroom or extra room over a garage.
Capital Building takes a holistic approach to all its home renovation projects, from initial design, the renovation build and finally the hand-over of the home improvement.
