By Jan Dowling January 23rd, 2015. Comments Off on How to have it all: Why upper storey additions make sense

Are you desperate for more living space but only have a small yard to work with? Maybe you have great views that will be missed if you only build a single storey addition?

The good news is there’s a solution: an upper storey addition. Watch video 2 below for a room-by-room tour of what we’re adding to this Unley home.

If you’ve been following our latest project in Unley, you’ll know that we’re building a two-storey addition at the back of a stunning four-roomed villa. With the slab poured, we’re now in the framing stage of the build – which is when everything starts to come to life!

Need a quick reminder of what this project looked like before we got to work on it? Check out our first blog and video: Brilliant Plan for Space: Upper Storey Extensions in Unley.

With an upper storey addition, you can get the living space you want without sacrificing your garden. Plus you gain fantastic views, extra light and add value to your home. Check out the views from our upper storey beach house project.

Let’s take a quick look at the benefits of upper storey additions:

  • Gives you more space
  • Provides breathtaking views of a city skyline, sea, countryside etc.
  • Brings more light into your home
  • Preserves your existing garden
  • Dramatically increases the value of your home

As the Unley villa demonstrates, ultimately the success of any home extension – whether single storey or upper storey comes down to a great design.

A great upper storey extension isn’t about putting boxes on top of roofs; it’s about creating spacious, light living spaces that lift your home and give your property a fantastic street presence.

Look at the difference our double storey addition made here –

The exterior cladding and style matches and enhances the original home, and adds enormous new living spaces – here our customers already had plans ready to go, and are thrilled with their “new” dream holiday home!
