Does your home feel smaller with each passing year? The longer you live in a house, the greater the struggle for space becomes. Be it a growing family, starting to work from home or simply accumulating more possessions over the years, it’s inevitable that you will start to feel cramped and boxed in. If you love your current home, as well as the neighbourhood and wider community, moving to a bigger property simply isn’t an option. To resolve your space dilemma, MW Carpentry Ltd designs and builds bespoke house extensions.
Based in Caversham, Reading, our team of carpenters and builders covers locations across Berkshire, from Henley-on-Thames to Newbury. With FMB membership and years of experience behind us, we manage extension projects to completion on time, within budget and to the highest standards of construction.
The Complete Extension Package
House extensions are large-scale projects that forever alter the way you use your home, not to mention the way it looks. They are sizeable investments too. For your own peace of mind, and the best possible results, you need to place your work in safe, proven hands.
MW Carpentry Ltd provides start-to-finish project management for extensions of any kind. We ensure the preliminary phase runs smoothly, be it planning the project, drawing up designs, liaising with building control or applying for planning permission, if needed.
During the physical construction itself, we use a team of FMB-approved builders, experienced carpenters and qualified tradespeople. With unmatched knowledge in these respective fields, we create results that not only look fantastic, but also comply with all relevant building regulations too.
When it comes to house extensions in Reading, Henley-on-Thames, Newbury and the wider Berkshire area, our service includes:

At MW Carpentry Ltd, we understand the personal nature of your extension project. The results we produce have a huge impact on your home, both in the immediate- and long-term. This is why we take a collaborative approach. We want to deliver built-for-purpose new living space, with results that exceed your expectations.
To do this, our Reading-based carpenters and builders sit down with you to discuss your ideas and concepts in detail. It’s important that we have a complete understanding of your design aspirations, lifestyle requirements and overall vision from the outset.
This gives all parties a clearly defined image of the new room(s) you want us to build, be it in Henley-on-Thames, Newbury or any other Berkshire location. In turn, we use this information to design an effective interior layout. This includes considerations like the right amount of electrical sockets and the installation of plumbing connections.
During the preliminary stages, we also confirm whether your project needs planning permission from the local authority. Generally speaking, most single-storey house extensions do not need approval because they qualify as a permitted development. However, they must meet strict limitations to fall into this category.
Most double-storey house extensions in Reading, Henley-on-Thames, Newbury and the neighbouring areas exceed permitted development rights. This means they will almost certainly need planning approval before our carpenters and builders start the construction phase.
We clarify your own situation during your initial consultation. If you need to obtain planning consent, MW Carpentry Ltd will prepare and submit the application on your behalf.
