My Home Extension – Sharing my Experience

I recently completed by my home extension project. Obviously, home extension entails considerable investment of time and money. However, that’s not adequate to achieve quality results. On most occasions, the outcome does not match with the picture we have in our minds and that is certainly not desirable. There are many reasons behind an extension project going off-track.

Mostly, the root of all the problems is lack of a coherent plan. If your ideas and intentions are not backed by a well thought out plan, your home extension project is bound to falter. My recent experience bears testament to this particular fact. When I started my project, in my eagerness I made the mistake of jumping straight into the execution part without properly planning out the extension. Strategic planning is imperative to string together your ideas into a real vision that can be completed in the stipulated time and budget. I was fortunate enough to realise it on time and hired a professional designer and architect to plan out my home extension, but this mistake is certainly avoidable.

Professional assistance also comes in handy in getting planning permission. Building extensions around Melbourne can be a hassle some task if one does not have the knowledge about the legalities involved. For most people opting for home extensions, a successful application for planning permission is necessary before any work can be undertaken. It becomes even more important where the suggested extension is higher than the highest part of your present roof as in my case.

Therefore, I would recommend taking professional assistance for home extension in order to attain the desired results.

General Discussion Blog – Sharing Ideas for Mutual Benefit

In today’s digital environment, in a world dominated by the Internet, Google and major search engines are considered to be the ultimate fountains of knowledge. But is this really so? Most information on search results is generic in nature with an absence of the very special personalised touch. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if somebody could answer all your doubts from first hand experiences? Welcome to the General Discussion Blog, a forum where you can post events and incidents that you have gone through so that others who face similar situations can benefit from it.

The very concept of sharing ideas for mutual benefit is simply amazing. It enlightens, it warns, it facilitates exchange of thoughts and most importantly cautions you against falling into pitfalls faced by others. Going on a long road trip vacation for the first time and want to know what precautions to take and the car tools to take along? Go to the General Discussion Blog and take advice from others who have undertaken similar expeditions. Or maybe you are wondering which insurance scheme will optimise cover for your family. Know about it all in this medium.

However, this Blog platform is not only about getting the required information. Life is not a one way street. It is also about posting your side of the story, the occasions you have gone through from which others can equally benefit as you have. Anything goes – a cell phone that is not functioning well, details of a plumber who has made major repairs in the middle of the night or simply the best place in town to have your kid’s birthday party. Don’t hesitate to put it all down even if you have to let off steam against a perceived injustice.
