What kind of extension/how big? How much did it cost, roughly?
We're considering our options for our next home and thinking of buying an old 3br red brick house and extending it.

I haven't done this but looked into it. I love Sarah Beeney double your home for 1/2 money.
I suggest checking the price difference between the smaller place and bigger place in your preferred area.
I've heard 2-3k per m2 for extensions. In our area it would be better just to buy the bigger house if you are planning to renovate straight away as the price difference isn't worth the hassle

Have done several for myself and more for others
Variable pricing depending on what and where you are doing.
As an wner builder you can save some depending how much you do yourself. More importantly you can generally get auch better job if you habe some idea of the trades and who to use etc.

I'm not 100% sure of costs involved but I know of 2 friends that it worked out cheaper for a knock down rebuild than to do extensions.
