Geelong House Extension Builders

outdoor renovation in geelong

A house extension is one of the best investments you can make in your property. If you plan on staying in your home for years to come, the additional living space enhances your daily life tenfold. And, if you plan to sell, a house extension will more than likely increase the resale value of your home. 
We can help you to get the most out of your investment. Just get in touch with a local Geelong Renovation Consultant today to arrange a no-obligation consultation. 

Why choose Refresh Renovations?

Expanding your home is a big undertaking, involving a range of professionals simultaneously: contractors, electricians, structural and architectural engineers, and tilers for starters. Your project may even require specialists. But when you work with Refresh, you only ever have to deal with one person, your dedicated Renovation Consultant. 
At Refresh, we believe that renovations should be exciting, not stressful, so we’ve streamlined the process and put homeowners’ experiences front and centre. Our Renovation Consultants act as a single point of contact from start to finish, sourcing premium materials, contracting local professionals, and coordinating all the necessary permits. They’re your single most important resource during your renovation as they work hard to bring your vision to life while dealing with all the detail behind the scenes. You can just enjoy the transformation. 

House extension ideas in Geelong

Cream brick houses, one of the more popular residential styles in Geelong, are highly sought after. Built mostly in the 1950s and 60s, they now display a distinctly retro look. Since they are well known for their solid construction, these homes are easily modernised and ideal for an extension. Adding an extra bedroom to a cream brick house is sure to increase the property value since they’re a hot-ticket item for home-buyers. 
If you’re one of the many Geelong homeowners whose property is on a quarter-acre lot, a second-storey extension may be a preferred option. Living space is still increased without reducing your precious outdoor area.
At Refresh, we work with properties of all shapes and sizes. To discuss what kind of house extension is best for your home, get in touch with a Renovation Consultant and arrange a free consultation.

How much does a house extension cost?

House extensions come in all shapes and sizes, so it makes sense that the costs vary considerably as well. To give you an idea of what can be achieved at different price points, let’s take a look at some real-life examples of Refresh house extension projects. 
This Refresh project involved creating an additional bedroom for overseas guests. This was completed for $88,000* and included:
- A fourth bedroom with walk-in wardrobe
- Concrete slab foundation
- A triple-stacking sliding door
- Roofing and cedar cladding
- A small patio
- Air conditioning installation
- Polished concrete floors in the main house 
This property needed additional living space for extended family to occupy. The extension was completed for $290,000* and included:
- A timber retaining wall 
- Changes to the interior layout
- Two new bedrooms
- An additional bathroom and laundry area
- A new living area combining two existing rooms
- Mid-century exterior weatherboard

*Costs are rough estimates and are subject to change. For a fixed-quote accurate to your specific project, please consult your local Refresh Renovation Consultant.

Do you need consent to add an extension to your house?

Yes, in the city of Geelong, “building permits are required for almost all new buildings, alterations, demolition and change of use” with few exemptions. Luckily, your Renovation Consultant will take care of any council applications required for these projects.

Let’s expand your dream home.

Your property is ideally located - but is lack of space compromising your lifestyle? Not any more. To arrange a free consultation, just get in touch with a local Geelong Renovation Consultant today to discuss expanding your home.

Your Style,
Your Budget,
Our Expertise

Refresh®’s process supports a bespoke design and build: a renovation tailored to your lifestyle requirements and taste. Your local House Extension renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your House Extension renovation consultant will want to know is what it is that you want to achieve through your home renovation. In this initial consultation, you can throw all of your ideas on the table - your consultant will then tailor them to your property and budget.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

With a clear understanding of your renovation goals, your House Extension consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up. This allows your House Extension consultant to assess whether or not your ideas are feasible, and allows you to point out any changes you would like in the design - before any work begins.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, working drawings will be developed. These will take into account the engineering, structural, design and aesthetic decisions you have made. If you would like to make any further changes, now is the time to do so. From there, your House Extension consultant will present you with a fixed-quote as well as a contract.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

Finally, you get to witness your project transition from the page to your property! Every aspect of the build will be managed for you, allowing you to carry on with your everyday life. Your House Extension consultant will do everything in their power to keep your project on schedule so that it can be completed within a set timeframe and budget.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final stage is for your local House Extension consultant to ensure that all Council documentation is completed and you have the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!
