It is no secret that second storey additions have become extremely popular in Perth. Second storey additions are a great way for homeowners to add space to their homes without having to sacrifice their backyard or their swimming pool. Here are some advantages and some things to consider about second storey additions.
Advantages of Second Storey Additions
Second storey additions allow you to build up instead of out, saving you space in your backyard that can be better used for amenities such as a swimming pool or an alfresco living area. If you like having a space in your backyard or you don’t have enough space to build out with a home extension, a second storey addition may be perfect for you.
Second storey additions can also provide you with great views, especially if you are living in a scenic area. At any rate, second storey additions allow you to add plenty of space to your home, which comes in handy if you have outgrown your current living situation but don’t want to buy, sell and move all of your belongings.
Since you will be adding extra space and extra rooms to your home, it will increase in value when it comes time to sell. The longer you keep your home, the more profit you will make from a second-story addition.
How to Know if a Second Storey Addition is Right for You
To know if a second storey addition is right for you, there are some important factors to consider. First of all, your foundation must be strong enough to hold a second storey. You will need a staircase to get upstairs, which will subtract some living space from your home. If you are advancing in age, you may want to consider a house extension so that you don’t have to climb stairs when you are older.
There are also many Council and neighborhood regulations to consider so you must make sure that your neighborhood will allow you to build a second story.
