It’s a dream for everyone to build a comfortable house for their family and children to call a home.
For an existing home, it is the norm for families to plan for an upgrade through adding an upper floor extension to add more space as the family begins to grow.
What keeps you from pursuing your plan?
- The cost of knocking down the ground floor is an added expense to rebuild an entirely new house, either single or double storey. It includes the planning and approval process, the construction materials and the residential building contractors.
- The amount of time it will take to finish the whole building construction.
- The hassle of moving out or getting rid of the items inside the house and moving to a temporary place while the construction is going on.
Decision making may be tough when you think about these disadvantages.
How is it done?
Builders will provide an easy way to help you make an upgrade through adding an upper storey extension for your home.
There is no need to knock down your existing house. Lightweight timber or steel stud construction materials can be used to construct your upper storey extension. It means there should only be minor structural upgrades.
Lightweight stud framed buildings are much easier to modify for any alterations if you decide to make structural changes in the future.
If you are planning to add more space and make a more comfortable home, now is the time to get it done. You may still be able to live in your house while builders are working on the upper floor of your home.
