In modern construction there is such a concept as free planning, that is, there is an apartment that has a large area and only four bearing walls. And then the matter of your taste. But what if there is no possibility to buy a new building? Can be done in the old apartment redevelopment.
The history of Reequipment of the surrounding housing or, in other words, the theme of redevelopment has more than a dozen years. Redevelopment has become necessary to expand the living area at the expense of storage rooms, loggias or balconies, as well as the combination of bathrooms with sanitary knots.

If you want to enlarge the corridor by a bathroom, to increase the area of living room due to auxiliary rooms, to move the entrance doorway or dismantle the window sill of the wall with the installation of hinged doors on the balcony, then in the Bureau of Technical Inventory no need to apply.
But in cases when you want to combine a loggia or a balcony apartment by disassembly of an external wall, to transfer a battery on a balcony, to increase a bathroom at the expense of a dwelling premise or to arrange an aperture in a bearing wall, then to address in BTI, and then and to architect it is necessary.
The next step of redevelopment is your meeting with the designer. If you wish to make redevelopment and repair on your own, it will, of course, reduce your costs, and perhaps it will bring pleasure. But it is better to entrust this case to specialists.
