With or without the help of a professional, before making the extensions you dream of, it is good to be aware of the preliminary steps to be accomplished and to follow certain instructions, as the architect Nils Degrémont indicates. Interview by Gilles Wallon What steps should you take before expanding your home? You must first consult the town planning department of your municipality. In the big cities, there is a public permanence of an instructor who will guide you in your steps and will allow you to confirm the possibilities of the field. This is the most important rule. This service will help you to know if your project requires a PD (prior declaration) or a PC (building permit), and if the services of an architect are necessary: this is the case when you want to make an extension that will carry the net surface area (Shon) of more than 170 m2. Once the administrative possibilities are understood, check the available budget according to the desired area. What financial cost to expect when you build your house yourself? It all depends on the type of project, the surface, the materials chosen, and the ease of construction. First you have to draw your project and then cost it, even at the sketch stage. If the project is carried out in self-construction, on normal land without special foundations, the construction cost can be estimated around € 1,000 excluding tax / m2. How to choose the rooms to enlarge to optimize the potential of the place? All houses and families are unique. It all depends on what you want to bring to this extension. Speaking to an architect will allow you to see, according to your needs and desires, the best way to expand your home. Expanding your home means a strong visual change. Is it necessary to register in continuity, or in rupture, with the already existing architecture of his house? With contemporary architecture. We can bring a touch of modern that fits well with rustic architecture. A contemporary project brings character to the house, in a regional style, for example. Nils Degrémont is a DPLG architect. He is associated with Laurent Mayoud within the Lofta + Playtime Architecture Agency, specialized in renovations, extensions, constructions and in public contracts. > More info on www.lofta.com
