Adding Value to Your Period Home with Extensions
Period home extensions are an excellent way to increase living space while preserving the original character and features of your home. You can add a larger kitchen, additional bathrooms, or bedrooms to your home with a period home extension, giving it new life and increasing its value. An extension that is well-designed and executed can improve the flow and functionality of your home, making it more comfortable and enjoyable to live in.
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.
The benefit of engaging with a designer-builder on the outset is that they can work to a budget. Often, people get plans from a drafting company or architect and then get a big surprise as to how much it all costs.
By doing it all at the same time, you can avoid cost-shock and save time in the engagement (and build) process.
We deliver high quality, exceptional work, fostering innovation, and quality suppliers & contractors.
