Thinking of Summer

As you look out your window on these cold, snowy winter days, it probably doesn’t feel like you should be thinking about extending your home.

However, now is exactly the right time to start the process to be finished during the summer.

Unfortunately, the weather here in the UK is not the most conducive for external works from late October through until about February or March – as there are more rainy days and less daylight hours.

At Thames Design & Build we usually advise clients to allow up to four months for the design and tender process which means if you start the process now, you will be building in early summer and your extension will hopefully be finished in time to enjoy the long hazy days of high summer.

As a design and build company we believe there is never a bad time to start thinking about an upcoming project. This is because one of the most important things to consider is the planning aspect. In fact, the sooner you start planning the planning process the better!

At Thames Design and Build we believe there is no time like the present to make a start on planning your extension to make the most of the space and value of your home.
