Home Extension or Second Storey Addition: Which One is Right for You?

Apr 13, 2017

We have built a lot of home extensions and second storey additions for our customers in the Perth area. For many, the decision isn’t whether or not to expand their current homes; it’s choosing between home extensions or a second storey addition. Here are some helpful hints for choosing between the two.

Why Expand Your Home At All?

There comes a time when most people start to “outgrow” their homes. Whether it’s a single professional who just wants more space to enjoy a great lifestyle or a growing family who needs more space for their kids, people just need more space. In addition, a lot of people want their “dream home” once they get to a certain point in their lives. Usually, a “dream home” has more space than a first home does.

While a lot of people decide to “buy up,” that involves selling your old home, buying a new one and moving all of your possessions. Also, the odds of finding your “dream home” built by someone else are not very good.

The answer is to turn your current home into your dream home. You can have it built just the way you want, as large as you want, with the features you always wanted. It’s just a matter of choosing which way to go: up or out.

When a Home Extension is Best

There are a lot of great reasons for choosing a home extension to expand your home. The most common reasons are council restrictions and a foundation that won’t handle a second storey addition. Another great reason is that there are no stairs to climb, ever. If you have enough land, a home extension can give you what you want.

When a Second Storey Addition is Best

A second storey addition is best when you don’t have enough land or when it will give you a scenic view of your surroundings. It’s also great for putting bedrooms upstairs and common rooms downstairs for entertaining.
