When a Home Extension Makes the Most Sense

Jul 4, 2016

With more than 70 years’ combined experience providing home extensions in the Perth area, we have become experts at helping homeowners decide which makes more sense: a home extension, a second storey addition, a home renovation or a knockdown/rebuild. We would like to focus on when a home extension is the best option for you.

When to Choose Home Extensions

Restricted from Building Up

Some neighbourhoods won’t allow you to build upwards. Some councils won’t, either, depending upon where you are located. If you need more space and can’t build upward, a home extension makes perfect sense.

Love Your Home but Need More Space

If you have a one-storey home that you love but you want more space, a home addition is the best option. It will keep your home as it is but just bigger. If you love your current home’s build and design, building out will keep it the closest to what it is now.

Have More Backyard Space than You Need

If you have a large backyard, building out is a great move. It will give you all of the indoor space you need and less backyard to maintain. You may want to talk to us about adding an alfresco living area adjacent to your home, too.

Physical Limitations

If someone in your house is physically challenged or has mobility issues , it is a lot easier to have everything on one floor than it is to make them use steps or put in an elevator. Make it easy for everyone. If you are getting up in the years, you may want to consider this option, too.

Structural Deficiencies

In some homes, the structure can be deficient for a variety of reasons. In some situations, it costs a lot more to build a second storey addition than it does to build a home extension. This makes it an easy decision for most.
