Local builder’s top tips for Autumn Winter house projects
The nights are drawing in and the weather is getting cold and wet. Not the time to be starting an extension or commissioning a builder to work on your roof (you might not mind, but he probably would!)
Wet, cold weather affects the ground, laying bricks in bad weather is not advisable and then we have the issue of ever-decreasing daylight hours.
However, there is plenty you can get done at this time of year, with a range of building projects, renovations and internal works being ideal for October, November and December. Here’s my best advice as a local builder who’s been advising domestic customers in the Wokingham area for a long time.
Think about internal work that needs doing at your home, including redesigns and internal modifications. Focus on the inside of the house:
– is it time for a new kitchen?
– have you been thinking about a new bathroom?
– could you get some work done to floor coverings?
– how about changing your internal doors?
Work to the inside of your house can range from small touch-ups and minor jobs which make the world of difference, to major building projects which totally transform your home (new bathrooms, knocking through walls to open up space, even moving stairs and walls to alter the internal dimensions of the house). You can update a room or even create an entirely new one!
As you can see, bad weather and short daylight hours don’t have to put the brakes on building work at home. One last thing to add is that now is actually a great time to get the ball rolling on those larger external jobs such as extensions and conversions. Get in touch with us here at K Design and Build, we can talk you through the process and get you through the planning to building point, so you can progress a lot more quickly when the weather does pick up. We can put you in touch with the architect, the planners and even help you get a budget and timeframe together.
