Home Extensions Sunshine Coast
What is a house extension?
House extensions involves adding extra room to your home. There are a lot of different ways you can add extensions to your home, and what may suit one home may not suit another. Common home extensions include:
- Changing the layout of your current floor plan
- Adding another storey to your home
- Single storey side or rear expansion
- Building a porch or pergola
- Lifting and building under
- Adding a granny flat
Home extensions are one of the trickiest forms of renovations, so it’s important that an experienced building team of house extension builders, designers and architects are involved in the process.
A good builder will help you prioritise choosing the right kind of extension for your home instead of choosing a costly build project that isn’t appropriate for your style of house. Our extension builders will offer guidance and advice to ensure you’re making the most out of your property space.
Is an extension right for you?
If you find yourself pressed for space in your home, it’s likely you’re considering whether to move house or increasing the size of your home. It can be a difficult decision to make, especially if you’re hesitant to leave your home and start afresh. The most common cause for concern when it comes to extending is the worry that adding another room or opening up the home will cost a lot of money and leave little return if you sell in the future.
On the flip side, trying to purchase a bigger home will likely result in you having to move to a different postcode, which can disrupt family life. If you require more space for a growing family, adding house extensions under the guidance of an extension builders can be a much more cost effective alternative to selling your home.
At Renovare, our home extensions experts will make your extension not only solves your space problem but adds value to your home too.
TYPES OF HOME EXTENSIONS
Single Storey Home Extension
A single storey extension is one of the most common types of home extensions, and typically involves joining a new dwelling to your home. This works best if you have a large block of land, as an extension can simply be built into the side or rear of your home.
Second Storey Addition
A second storey addition requires a lot of skill on builders’ part, as it involves removing your roof and replacing it with a second storey structure. This is a popular option for homes that sit on small blocks of land, as none of the land will be lost to the build.
A granny flat is a separate dwelling that can be either attached or detached from your home. It usually comes complete with its own bedroom(s), living room, bathroom, kitchenette, and laundry.
Adding a granny flat is dependent on the size of your land, as it takes up a lot of room.
Granny flats are a wonderful option for housing family, or a way to earn a passive income from occupants.
If your home is on stumps – such as the classic Queenslander homes – it might be possible to add another floor below it. There are a couple of possibilities when it comes to a build under, with the first option being the simplest one.
If your home is in on stilts and at the right height, it’s possible to built underneath as long as it doesn’t affect plumbing and meets council regulations.
If your home is on stumps but not at the correct height, a lift up and build under might be the best option. However, this is not always possible so it’s best to talk to an expert to see if it’s an appropriate solution for your home.
