Cambridgeshire & West Suffolk House Extensions Builders

House extensions in Cambridge

Homes in Cambridgeshire, West Suffolk and the surrounding villages are in very high demand – great news if you already live there! But if you’re relocating to the area or looking for a larger home, finding the right property is becoming increasingly tricky.
A Refresh Renovations extension could be the perfect solution.

How do I find a good builder in Cambridge?

The long history of Cambridge has seen many types of homes built in and around the area, from Georgian townhouses to Edwardian and Victorian terraces, inter-war semi-detached homes, mid-century modern houses and bungalows and, in the surrounding villages, traditional 18th and 19th-century farmhouses and barn conversions.
This variety offers many different opportunities and challenges to homeowners. Some house types are more suitable for basement conversions or side return extensions; others for loft conversions or rear extensions. Choose a local specialist who understands the design, construction and materials of your home to make the most of its potential and minimise the risk of costly delays.
A good designer will retain the period character of your property with a matching extension – or bring it into the 21st century with a contrasting modern design if that’s more your style.
The Refresh Renovations team can cover all your extension needs, from the initial design to a detailed budget and timeline, and work with trusted local suppliers and tradespeople to carry out the project.

Is there a Cambridge builder who can do all the work?

Refresh Renovations works in the city of Cambridge and across Cambridgeshire, including surrounding areas such as Ely, St Neots and Bury St Edmunds. As a renovation specialist, Refresh has extensive experience of all kinds of home extensions and renovations.
Refresh has close relationships with carefully selected and experienced tradespeople, to ensure a high quality service and give you access to trade discounts to deliver the best value for money.
Unlike other Cambridge builders, Refresh Renovations offers a full design-and-build service. From the outset, Refresh experts work with you to understand your needs. You’ll know exactly what to expect, how much the work will cost, and when it will be completed. You’ll also have a single point of contact providing clear, stress-free communication throughout your extension project.

What can I achieve with my budget?

Every renovation project is different, so the cost of a home extension in Cambridge will vary depending on what you want to achieve, the size and complexity of the work needed, and the level of finish you choose.
For example, a basic kitchen extension within the existing footprint of the house can be completed for around £10,000-£20,000. Alternatively, a laundry room might cost as little as £5,000 if slotted into an existing garage or outhouse, and can free up valuable space elsewhere.
A budget of between £15,000 and £50,000 will allow you to add a new room accommodating a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, but the possibilities are endless. Refresh Renovations can help you decide whether a loft conversion, rear extension or conservatory best suits you and your lifestyle.

Do I need planning permission for an extension in Cambridge?

You may not need planning permission for your home extension if it meets certain requirements. Small single- or two-storey rear extensions and small loft conversions, for example, may fall within 'permitted development’ rules and require no planning permission.
There are a number of limits and exclusions to permitted development rules, but Refresh Renovations will take care of all required planning and building regulations permits as part of their end-to-end project management service.

Your Style,
Your Budget,
Our Expertise

Refresh®’s process supports a bespoke design and build: a renovation tailored to your lifestyle requirements and taste. Your local Full Home Renovation renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your Full Home Renovation renovation consultant will want to know is what it is that you want to achieve through your home renovation. In this initial consultation, you can throw all of your ideas on the table - your consultant will then tailor them to your property and budget.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

With a clear understanding of your renovation goals, your Full Home Renovation consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up. This allows your Full Home Renovation consultant to assess whether or not your ideas are feasible, and allows you to point out any changes you would like in the design - before any work begins.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, working drawings will be developed. These will take into account the engineering, structural, design and aesthetic decisions you have made. If you would like to make any further changes, now is the time to do so. From there, your Full Home Renovation consultant will present you with a fixed-quote as well as a contract.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

Finally, you get to witness your project transition from the page to your property! Every aspect of the build will be managed for you, allowing you to carry on with your everyday life. Your Full Home Renovation consultant will do everything in their power to keep your project on schedule so that it can be completed within a set timeframe and budget.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final stage is for your local Full Home Renovation consultant to ensure that all Council documentation is completed and you have the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!
