Home Extensions Built By Local Professional Tradesmen And Women

Home Extensions

Build8 are Scotland’s premier kitchen, home extensions and side return extension specialist builders.

We specialise in a wide variety of successful bespoke home extension projects in Scotland designed to expand your space and breathe new life into your home, inside and out.

Moreover, with a home extension, you could make more room for a growing family or add value to your property.

Our extension designs are drawn up with your needs in mind and our qualified, experienced home extension local builders can bring them to life in a matter of weeks.

Furthermore, home extensions or kitchen home extensions are relatively cost-effective and extremely versatile.


Another reason a home extension, whether this is a kitchen, wrap-around extension, flat roof extension, rear extension or side return extension can provide you with the additional room you need at your existing property.

Therefore a House extension can build you and your family an improved home without breaking the bank.

In addition, while home or kitchen extensions are cost-effective in comparison to home purchases, they still require a lot of effort and a fair amount of time from the initial site survey to the décor in the finished space.

That’s why a Build8 extension builder prides themselves on providing the simplest, clearest, most comprehensive home improvement and domestic extension building service available in Scotland.

Build8 is also proud to be a part of the local senior savers program.

Frequent Questions

How long will it take to receive my quotation?

Once a surveyor has visited your property and carried out a site survey it will take no longer than 1 week for you to receive a comprehensive quotation. If you have not received your quotation in this time, then please visit your junk email folder (as sometimes our quotations can end up there by accident!) or give our team a call on 01294 557 744. 

How long are your quotations valid for?

Our prices are reviewed from time to time to cover things like the increasing prices of materials and are therefore valid for a maximum of six months. During this time your quotation can be altered to further suit your needs if necessary. 

How quick can you start to build my extension?

We might be able to begin the build in as little as two weeks after your specification is submitted. Of course, you will need to have received planning permission from all the relevant places and considered potential blockers such as party walls before any work can begin. 

How long does it take for a set of plans to be approved for my extension?

You might be surprised to know that not all extensions require planning permission, but for those that do, it can often take 8 weeks for plans to be approved through planning permission.

What is a party wall agreement and do I need one for my extension?

A party wall agreement is required if your home has a wall that is connected to another property on either side. Each neighbour will have to be informed of the proposed works using a party wall notice form at least two calendar months before the intended start of the build. The party wall agreement is there to protect you and your neighbour from issues that might arise due to work done on the party wall. It draws up an agreement between you and your neighbour on what needs to happen if there is a problem. By law, your neighbour can insist you have one before the work starts.

We needed a big extension to accommodate a home/office. The folks at Build8 couldn’t have been any more helpful. Planned and executed to perfection, this was the experience we hoped for.

Stuart from Build8 was great, he knew his stuff and understood our requirements from the off. I can’t recommend this company highly enough! And plan on using them again for another job.

We were looking for an extension to the rear of our property with a kitchen added and we got exactly what we wanted and are thrilled with the end result. Stuart was fantastic throughout the time spent here and we had a few laughs to boot. Brilliant guys, brilliant job.
