Growing Your Home - Deciding to Get an Extension or Addition

February 18, 2023

Houses can grow along with you to suit the needs of your growing family. They may not grow like a plant or a living being, yet they grow nonetheless.

Read on to find out how to make your home grow with house extensions Perth.

If you do not have space on the ground, you need not worry, since most homes can grow a level or two as well, with home additions Perth.


When you need more space, there are a few ways you can add onto your home. If all you need is a little bit of space, try a bump out addition. This is the process of adding up to 10 or 12 feet of space — enough for a dining table or kitchen expansion. You can also go for a full add-on, which can give you an extra room or two. The thing with extensions is that you will likely need to take up yard space and add extra foundation.

Level up

If you want to save the yard space, you can always build up. An extra level can be added as a loft or to fully double your home — depending on your needs, foundation strength, and space available.

You will need to have the home surveyed to determine if anything needs to be done to make your home more stable before the level is added. Other options include adding an attic or digging out a basement. Either way you go, adding levels will give you up to 3 or 4 extra rooms or one huge, luxurious master suite.

The best part of adding a level is the expanded view you get — especially if you live near the shore or have an open view of the sunset or sunrise.

Finding a good builder

Regardless of whether you plan to build out with a bump out or full room extension, or even build a new level, you should do your research to find a good builder. Ask family, friends, and neighbours if they know anyone.

Look at online reviews and pictures of their previous projects. Shop around to find the best price. To find the best value, do not take the lowest quote or the highest, without knowing all the details.

Discuss your needs, ideas, and bring pictures of your home to get a simple design sketch — this will tell you if they can design what you want.

A growing family means more space is needed — extra rooms or bathrooms. There are two options to make your home grow. One way would be house extensions Perth, which is the process of making your home bigger on the ground level.

If you do not have any space on the ground level, then you can have a builder give you home additions Perth — adding extra levels to your home.

Any way you decide it is best to make your home grow, a professional builder will make it look like the home came that way and give you all the space you need.
