THS Homes What's New?

09/03/2019: To move or not to move?

As families grow and expand, space in many homes begins to seem a little scarce. Teenagers' bedrooms are no longer just places to sleep. The bathroom queue seems never ending. Kitchens must adapt to changed eating patterns as timetables for work and study evolve.

Time to move? Maybe.

Perhaps it is time to talk to a specialist in extensions and conversions to gain the space that you need without going to all the trouble and expense of moving. There are many good reasons for staying put such as:

Cost
In many parts of the country, each additional room can add a hefty six-figure sum to the asking price. Then there are direct costs to physically moving your family and possessions, which can be substanAs families grow and expand, space in many homes begins to seem a little scarce.

In most cases, we find that the cost of even major changes can be much less than moving.

Convenience
With sympathetically planned conversion, extension and renovation works, the disruption to your normal life can be much less than the heartache of packing, moving and unpacking again. As family people ourselves, we understand that life must go on even when undertaking a major home renovation. Our specialist team works with you to make sure that the schedule fits in with your way of life.

Administration
If you were to move, how many people would you have to inform. The list seems endless and can take up vast amounts of your valuable time. Extending your existing home saves a lot of paperwork.

Familiarity
All the reasons that you chose your existing home are still valid. You get to keep those, like the area, your neighbours, travel arrangements and the character of the building.

Education
If your family is still at school, moving even a short distance can cross the boundaries of catchment areas, causing unwelcome disruption to the people you care for most.

THS Homes specialises in adding useful living space to existing properties with care for comfort, convenience, style and character. Extra rooms can be added, existing space can be re-purposed and converted, or a combination of both. This can make sure that your home works the way your family needs it to. Lofts, garages and even landings can be converted to useful living space. Adding en-suite facilities can relieve the pressure on bathrooms and modern, convenient kitchens can utilise space better to make sure that everyone gets fed when they need to be.

Our specialist team has a wealth of experience in making more useful space available. Call us or click in the header of any page to send an email for help at every stage from planning and design, dealing with matters of permissions, construction and final decoration. From changing a single room to major refurbishment of substantial properties, you can be confident that the result will exceed your expectations.

04/03/2019: Your Home, Your Way

As a child, one of the biggest treats for me was to be allowed to use the Bonzer catering can opener in the kitchen of my parents' pub. It's funny how pub parents can always disguise work as a treat, isn't it?

Anyway, it always felt good from the satisfying 'thunk' as the cutting head pierced the can, through the smooth movement of the large handle to the final 'ting' when the lid was free.

Small things like that mean a lot, not only to a child, but feeling good about the things that we use in our everyday life makes a huge difference to our overall happiness.

That's why THS Homes believe that the most important step in any extension, conversion or renovation project is to listen to the people who are going to be living in the house and using the facilities, day in, day out.

By helping you make the right choices, then making a beautiful installation, THS Homes will deliver a new living space which is just the way you want it in terms of appearance, comfort and ergonomy.

If you are planning to make changes to your home in the south east of England, have a talk with our team of experts, who are there to help you personalise your home, your way. Simply click in the header of any page to send us an email.

27/02/2019: Web site relaunch

Having been responsible for a large number of high-profile housing developments over the years, it seems a perception has grown up that this is all we do. To make sure that nobody is deterred from asking about smaller projects, our web site has been re-launched to bring back to the fore the work on extensions, conversions and renovations which has been, and will continue to be the mainstay of THS Homes' activities.

Take a look at the new site for examples of work carried out on a wide range of buildings from re-purposing a parades of shops to sensitive restoration and refurbishment of listed buildings from Tudor times.

Whether your plans include a major extension involving a footprint change to the building, or a simple re-purposing of another room, garage, loft or landing, your project will receive expert attention.

Extension or conversion of your existing home is most often more cost effective than moving and cuts down on the disruption to family life immeasurably.

All our work is carried out to the most modern standards of environmental friendliness, energy efficiency, comfort and style, in keeping with the character of the original building and the area. Call us, or click in the header of any page to send an email.
