It is common for families to outgrow their current home and for homeowners to want a little something more after a few years at their house. One of the best and most efficient ways to create additional space is to extend your home. Extending out is often cheaper than buying a larger house and relocating, and gives you more control over the final result. Refresh’s North Shore team of extension builders have tons of experience in extending homes and can help you do so.
If you are ready to discuss your home extension plans, get in touch with one of our Renovation Consultants today. Alternatively, we’ve compiled a common list of questions below.
Homeowners in the North Shore often love their neighbourhood too much to want to move to a new area. This is why they often choose to extend their homes instead. Not only can extending your home give you the freedom to add as much space as you are looking to create, but it often adds a significant amount of value to your property as well.
One of the most common trends is to extend outwards by making use of underutilised backyards and side-lawns. If you find yourself no longer using your backyard, why not extend out and add another room or two?
Another popular trend is to extend upwards by adding a second or third storey to your existing home. This can often double the available area in a home and can be achieved without sacrificing your yard space or getting uncomfortably close to your neighbours.
Different homeowners extend to add different rooms, as each person has their own wants and needs. Perhaps you’ve started to work from home and would like to create a dedicated work office? Whatever your needs are, you have the option to decide what you want, and the Refresh North Shore team can advise you on exactly how to achieve this within your desired budget.
Although each home extension project is unique, based on Refresh North Shore’s previous completed projects, we estimate* that a home extension can cost anywhere between $1,000 per square meter to upwards of $3,500 per square meter, depending on your property’s land area, your home’s age, the materials you choose, and the scope of your project.
