What are some house extension ideas in Timaru and Ashburton?

House extensions provide much needed space in your home and while most house extension ideas in Timaru and Ashburton see extra space added to the side or back of a house, there is space added on top too.

Turning your single storey dwelling into a two storey house will take some planning but it can be possible, particularly with the help of Refresh. And a second storey on your home will give you space for extra bedrooms, bathrooms, ensuites, walk-in wardrobes, home offices, or even a second lounge.

Another house extension idea that’s popular in Timaru and Ashburton is extending out, to provide more living and dining space and achieving better indoor-outdoor flow. A backyard house extension usually involves decking as well, which can add some nice landscaping features to your project.

How much does a house extension cost in Timaru and Ashburton?

The cost of extending onto your home depends on what your house extension entails. Are you going up, out, extending to the back, or creating space to the side? How big a space are you adding onto your home? To what extent will it increase the footprint of your home? There are many questions to ask but your Renovation Consultant will have the answers so they can provide you with a fixed quote accurate to your project.

A bedroom extension in Wanaka achieved a generous walk-in wardrobe and brought the main bathroom closer to the bedroom, making the new room ideal as a master bedroom or guest suite. This $88,000 project meant the homeowner achieved a much needed fourth bedroom for a growing family and occasional overseas visitors.

In Christchurch, a 1970s family home needed more space and an upgrade before baby arrived. Focusing on the kitchen, laundry, and bathroom, this project achieved a successful outcome by relocating the laundry room to maximise space and positioning the bathroom next to a bedroom to allow room for a larger shower.
