Why Choose a Second Storey Addition?

Mar 8, 2016

Second storey additions have become extremely popular in Perth for numerous reasons. We’d like to tell you about a few of them.

When you outgrow your home and need more space, you have two options. The first is the messiest: you can sell your current home, buy a new home and move. That is a lot of physical work and it’s also a lot of work turning off services at the old house and turning them on at the new house. If you have kids, you force them to move away from their friends.

The second option is by far the easiest and least expensive: expand your current home. This saves you the cost and hassle of moving. It also saves you the commission you have to pay to sell your current house.

When you expand your current home, you can either build out, as in a home extension, or you can build up with a second storey addition. We have more than 70 years’ combined experience in building both second storey additions and home extensions in the Perth area. Here are the reasons why a second storey addition may be appropriate.

Why So Many People Build Second Storey Additions in Perth

The most common reason for building a second storey addition is that there isn’t enough room in the yard to build out. Maybe you don’t want to cut into your garden. Maybe you don’t want to tear down your swimming pool. Or maybe you have a small lot. Either way, if there isn’t enough land, you can’t build out.

But there are a lot of benefits to building a second storey addition even if you do have room to build out. It can provide a scenic view if you are in the right location. You can nearly double your house space and put all of the bedrooms upstairs while leaving the downstairs for all common areas. This can be very peaceful for parents.
