Choosing to extend your existing home to create more space and in turn, add value, is a great investment and when carefully thought through, doesn’t have to break the bank.
Our timber frame panel systems suit a variety of extension designs, from modern single storeys adding more living and dining space to the ground floor, to two storey extensions creating additional bedrooms/bathrooms to your first floor and wrap around extensions which offer a number of existing rooms more space and ‘open up’ the existing structure. It is also possible to add on an extra storey – see our Bungalow Conversions page.
Some examples of the above can be seen in the photos below (click on each image to open the blog article about that project).
Opting to use timber frame for the structure will allow for a quick build-time with a weatherproof and secure structure in place much faster than other construction methods. Whilst your groundworks are underway, we’ll be busy manufacturing the timber frame structure in our factory facility meaning there are no delays or ‘down-time’ on site. To find out more read our pages Timber Frame Construction and Benefits of Using Timber Frame.
Below are two time lapse videos of timber frame construction projects.
Depending on the final specification for your extension project, the timber frame structural elements can be installed within a matter of days, meaning roofing works can be scheduled in advance and commence immediately which in turn allows for internal works to start once your extension is in the dry. Since an extension is to your existing home, which is usually where you continue to live during the works, using timber frame as the construction method will reduce the disruption due to the speed it is installed as well as the benefit of off-site construction meaning very little to no waste at all left on site.

Timber is an environmentally friendly material with excellent insulation properties meaning your new extension will not only be eco-friendly, but super energy efficient with its excellent thermal properties. Teamed with our well researched insulation options, your prefabricated timber frame structure will offer a low-cost addition to your home.
We can work with you to build your new extension in a variety of ways…
- We can provide a complete design and build service looking after all aspects of the architecture and construction depending upon your location in the UK.
- We can quote to build your extension to your specifications and designs.
- We can work with you (self build) or your chosen builder to supply and erect (if required) the timber frame structure.
See What Our Clients Say About Their Timber Frame Extensions
We wanted to extend our 2 bed bungalow so that we can start a family and after much research found Vision Development. We are first time self builders and from first contact, Vision made it very easy for us to get our head around elements within our build. The structure was assembled within 3 days from delivery date and the site was left tidy.
The service was excellent throughout and it has been great to deal with a local family run business who really cared about our project.
I would highly recommend Vision Development for anyone looking to self build be it first time or seasoned builders.
Thank you Tim and team for your efforts.
We had plans to build a sizeable extension to our home and chose Vision Development South Ltd to do the job. The project was carried out with skilled courteous tradesmen who worked non-stop in all weathers and the office staff were always on hand. The transformation is amazing and I am delighted with the finished works.
We have recently had a two storey extension from Vision and would like to say that, we cannot speak highly enough of this company, from the friendly family feel when we visited them before placing an order, right through to completion of the building. Roy, and his team of Christian, Nathan, Paul and Ben were on site every day at 8am and worked their socks off, even on the first two days when the heavens opened they still ploughed on, nothing was to much trouble and what a fantastic job they have done for us. The whole process has been a pleasure and we would like to thank all at Vision Tim, Lucy and everyone for your help guidance in making it a pleasure. We will be back for our next project.
From the outset it was clear that we had made the right choice in using Tim and his team at Vision.Tim’s vision, values and high standards run through the whole company whether they be in the office, the workshop or on site.Vision have restored our faith in the building trade.It really has been a joy and a pleasure for them to be involved in our project and we are sorry that their part in our project is at an end. The coffee machine is always on and you are all, always welcome in our home.
