House Extensions in Holmfirth | Optimising Living Space with our Local House Builders

A house is the single biggest investment most of us will ever make in our lifetimes but, as the years go by, there can be many reasons why a property is no longer suitable. Perhaps your children are growing up and need their own bedrooms, or an elderly relative is moving in with you. Whatever the reason, if your home in Holmfirth is starting to feel a little cramped, A H Construction’s range of house extensions may be the answer.

Operating out of Holmfirth, our friendly team of building contractors have over 10 years of industry experience and specialise in the construction of house extensions across all of Yorkshire.

Our team delivers quality results at competitive prices and offer a full project management service for your peace of mind. Contact us to find out more.

Extensions undertaken to maximise your living space include:

  • Side-Return

  • Rear-Facing

  • Wraparound

  • Multi-Storey

  • Above-Garage


A popular choice for period properties in Holmfirth, or for houses with an alleyway on one side. Side-return house extensions use these wasted outside areas to expand your inside space without sacrificing any of the garden. Although this type of extension is generally quite small, it can have a significant impact on the overall flow of a home. Our building contractors can source and utilise reclaimed stone to seamlessly blend in new additions with any period property.


For some homeowners, side-return extensions are not a viable option, and the only available alternative is to extend out from the back of their properties. Our team of building contractors can optimise the layout of any home by creating an open-plan kitchen/diner with a seating area for the family.


A H Construction can combine a side-return with a rear-facing design to create L-shaped wraparound house extensions. This is the perfect solution for adding more storage space, a new downstairs toilet or a utility room for domestic appliances while also expanding the kitchen or living room.


For homeowners in Holmfirth who want an open-plan kitchen but are also looking to add a new kitchen or an ensuite to a master bedroom, multi-storey house extensions are the answer. This is an excellent option for those wanting to add two or more rooms to a property because the work doubles the amount of living space gained without doubling the cost of the job.


To really optimise your living space in Holmfirth without sacrificing an inch of your garden or patio, our team can build an extension over your garage. We can even reinforce the existing foundations to ensure your garage can take the load. You might also be familiar with these house extensions by their other name, over-structure.

We liaise with your local building control inspector to ensure all construction work completed by our team in the Holmfirth area, like new builds and house extensions, complies with the current version of the UK Building Regulations.

It is important to note that some house extensions fall under permitted development, but others may need planning permission.
