With more than 70 years combined experience building home extensions and second storey additions in the Perth area, we have helped a lot of people make the important decision of whether to build up or out. Here are the factors we think are important.
Why Add to Your Home in the First Place?
If you want or need a larger home but don’t want to go through the hassle of selling your current home, buying a new home and moving, it makes sense to renovate and expand your current home. A lot of people want more space but love where they live and don’t want to move.
Basically, home extensions are for people who have room to build out. If you want more living space or more entertaining space, a home extension is perfect. You can even add in an alfresco living area because the addition is a great way to open your home to the outdoors. A home extension is also great for people who may have mobility issues and don’t want to go up and down stairs.
The main drawbacks are that you will be losing a sizeable portion of your backyard. In addition, it could cost a lot for excavating and building a new foundation.
Second Storey Addition
Second storey additions are the only option if you don’t have enough space to build out. In addition, they work well if you want more space for extra bedrooms and you are happy with your living area downstairs. They are also great for separating the bedrooms from the main living space. If you are in a neighbourhood where the views are nicer a few metres above the ground, a second storey addition can be a great enhancement for your lifestyle.
