What Are House Extensions?
Do you love where you live, but need more space? A home extension might be just the solution. To experienced extension builders, home extensions involve more than just adding an extra closet or two. There are many ways the space within your home can be reimagined and the type of extension that is suitable may vary from one home to the next. Different types of home extensions can include:
- Reconfiguring your current floor plan
- Opening the house up and extending as a ground floor build
- Considering building an additional story
- Lifting and building under
- Building a separate dwelling such as a granny flat
It is crucial to have experienced home extension builders and building designers as part of the house extensions process to assist you in selecting the ideal type of extension, and to offer suggestions to ensure we are best utilizing the space and maximizing the value of your home extensions plan.

TYPES OF HOME EXTENSIONS
Single Storey Home Extensions
Single-story home extensions involve building a dwelling that directly joins to your existing property. Depending on the layout and current design of your home, there are many ways in which this can be done. This is ideal for homes who are situated on a large block with usable land. Most single-story house extensions involve adding a room in front of, or behind your home.
Second Storey Addition
Second-story home extensions involve removing your current roof and constructing the second story on top of the existing foundation. This virtually doubles the space in your home and is a great option, especially if your block is smaller in size and you do not want to lose any of your existing land space.
Granny flat home extensions involve building either an attached or detached ‘separate dwelling’ which will usually be self-contained with its own bedrooms, living/dining area, kitchen/kitchenette, bathroom and possibly a laundry. Whether a granny flat is a possibility for you will depend on your land size and location, your house extension builders will have an understanding with what is possible for you in your unique space. A granny flat is also an ideal way to optimize your home for introducing a second source of income.
There are two possibilities when it comes to building under your existing home. If your home is currently on stumps and is at the right height, you may be able to build-in the space underneath provided this does not affect drainage around your home and fits with council regulations.
If your existing home is on stumps, it may be able to be lifted and then built-in underneath. This is ideal for ‘Queenslander’ style homes and may not be possible for all existing home designs. Your house extension builders will be able to clarify if this is a possibility for you.
