While a home addition is to ‘go up’, a home extension will extend an existing property, creating a larger footprint while remaining at ground level. An example would be adding an extra room/s or expanding on an existing space, keeping in mind this will reduce your landscape area.
Depending on your lifestyle, creating a larger level home with little or no stairs over a two-level house may be a significant benefit, one which out ways having a large yard.
We highly recommend obtaining professionally designed plans. By doing so you ensure that you create a space that is functional and utilised in the best possible way. Thorough documentation allows all parties (client, architect and builder) to have clear and transparent information about what is being built. This results in more precise tender costs, less chance of budget blow outs and a better build process.
