Move On Up or Expand The Existing Homestead

Oh so any new homes having to go up around where I live.  There is an almost constant thumping sound as the tipper truck tears about the new site like a Bob the Builder on irn bru.  I am amazed that we need so many new houses to go up.  There are developments springing up on each single parcel of land within my immediate area and it holds some significance to me as I bought my house from new and on the planning notes and special search results, there is no mention of this expansion of course!  But if you already have a house and need to move or size up but canot afford to, then how about getting quotes to add a room on to or up above the existing?  Contacting a construction or small building company can be the first step – they will be much cheaper than buying bigger!
