We are currently trying to decide if to move or not to move! We really need a bigger home and are trying to decide if to move or to stay where we are and extend. The problem we have is extending will cost us a lot of money but probably wont add that much value. We could then move and spend the extra on moving to a new area, with new neighbours and a new start. At the moment we love the area we live in, we have the most fantastic neighbours all around us and it is really nice and quiet. This is what is making our decision hard.
At the moment we have a 3 bedroom detached house with a big conservatory on the back and a nice garden. These days if you move to a new home the garden’s are so small which is a problem for us. We all love being outside as a family and would love to keep a big garden.
We have been thinking about knocking the wall down between the living room and kitchen to make the downstairs feel a lot bigger and more open. Our living room is quite dark as well so this would really brighten the place up with the light coming in through the conservatory.
We would then love to have our loft converted. This would be our bedroom and en-suite which would be amazing. I have looked into prices already and what suite I would love in there. I would love it to be bright and fresh and very modern looking. My parents have some lovely windows from the brand VELUX and I think this is something we would definitely go for, really can’t compromise on quality.
We then would love to add an extension to the side to make a bigger bathroom and a play room for the kids, this would be built over the top of our garage. At the moment we have most of the kids toys in the living room so it would be nice to be able to put them all in the playroom.
We have some big decisions to make in the next few months and really get a plan together. We keep talking about it and just can’t make up our minds. We are swaying more towards extending where we already live for the simple fact we love the area and we have such great neighbours. We could move and have the most awful neighbours and it could make our lives a nightmare.
Any suggestions, what would you do?
