This can be on the front, the back or the side and no matter which holds true you will end up expanding the footprint of your home. You can create far more room for much the same cost converting your loft, and you'll not extend the footprint at all. The other option which may be open to you is to do a garage conversion, although this is dependant upon you having a spare garage that is not needed for your car.
