This was a wonderful example of intelligent design creating an entirely new living space for a period home

The Project:

Adding a second story to a lovely period home.

Client Story:

Leah and Marco were ready to live in style in their lovely character home but they needed to create an inviting children’s space for their growing family. They wanted to add another floor to their home and it was important to them that their extended home look like it had always been there.

The result:

This was a wonderful example of intelligent design creating an entirely new living space for a period home. Gables, render, tuck pointing, ornate tiled finials, timber windows were all matched to relate to the existing residence. 

The street facade turned out picturesque. A new double carport was built as well as other light renovations to freshen up the home. 

They wanted the upper floor to be a dedicated children’s area. Great views of the tree and backyard  add to this delightful living area. 

We were able to create 2 large bedrooms with great views to the park, a comfortable bathroom and a large living area in their new upper floor space. 

We added windows to the staircase void to filter light and warmth to the ground floor.

There were difficulties to get the job approved through the council due to height restrictions. However, due to the contours of the site, we were able to justify the design to the council and they agreed to our proposal.

This is now a wonderful family home, in a great location, and designed exactly as they wanted it.

A flawless double story character home to accommodate this lovely, growing, family, in a beautiful suburb and neighbourhood.

Customer's Feedback

As completely novice builders, we were very nervous about the whole process, but right from the start we clicked with Max. He really listened to what we wanted, what we didn’t want (we had a better idea of that), and how much we wanted to spend, and within the first hour of our meeting, he sketched an idea that ended up being very close to the final build. He also explained the process and drew us a flow chart (council approvals, etc) that we referred back to more than once. Aesthetically, we really wanted our house to look like it had always been two stories, and Max absolutely achieved that – in fact, we have random people in the neighbourhood unsolicited telling us how great the house looks.

Getting council approval was challenging, given that our house is old, and meshing the older build with the new left (in combination with the height of our block) us in a bit of conflict with the planning department. Craig was fantastic in guiding us through a stressful process, making all the accommodations that he could with the plans while also helping us understand all the steps involved, and the reasoning behind all of the engineering decisions. Not only that, but Craig is a brilliant bathroom designer! It’s a small thing, but he planned the tiling even to the perfectly symmetrical placement of the drains.

We were incredibly lucky to have Allan as our site foreman. He was on top of every step, explaining to us what we needed to know, timelines, walking us through on site decisions and giving us lots of warning about our own timelines, like needing to move furniture. He looked after our build with a laser focused attention to detail that we certainly would not have been able to do ourselves. Allan looked after our build like it was his own home. At every decision point, he was fully transparent about the how and the why, and we were able to make decisions with complete confidence knowing that because of Allan, we really understood the pros and cons.

Despite COVID 19, our build finished on time and on budget, and we’re absolutely delighted with the results. We would recommend Next Level unreservedly. We don’t plan to build again, but if we did, we would absolutely go back to Next Level.
