There are many reasons to build a second storey addition to your property. Whether it’s creating more living space or to increase the overall value of your property, doing home extensions, especially building a second storey addition surely offers a variety of benefits. By doing a second storey addition or a home extension project, you won’t have to move out and instead can have the same amount of space you’ll get when you move up.
As a registered Perth builder that provides comprehensive residential renovations and construction services, we’ll make this home extension journey as easy as possible. We’ll be with you every step of the way – from the initial consultation through working with the architects and interior designers and to the build itself and the handover of the completed project.
One of the projects we are working on involves a second storey addition to a home in Mariginiup.
When we first met with the clients to talk about their plans and survey the property, Michael Allen, owner and builder of Chartwell Construction, noticed that the front entry door to the home was not clearly seen and therefore suggested we build a portico style entry to the front elevation to give the house a better street appeal.
Having a portico or porch leading to the entrance of the property gives character to the asset, especially when built for a residential home. In the case of this property it also has the added benefit of breaking the join between the upper and lower storeys giving a more seamless look to the property.
On this particular renovation project, significant structural alterations will be carried out to the ground floor level to achieve the desired space and look that the clients requested for their home.
For the lower part of the property, we will be changing the existing floor layout to create an open plan feel to the home and more living space. The centre of this space will be the true focal point of the home and highlighted by a beautiful floating staircase. We have altered the downstairs bedrooms by removing a dividing wall to create one larger bedroom for growing teenagers. The existing master bedroom is also being removed to make space for a home theatre room.
Currently, we are constructing a timber-framed second storey addition for the moving up home extension that the clients wanted. We will be building a parents retreat, a walk-in wardrobe, and an en-suite, giving the homeowners the space they need to take a break and relax after a hard day’s work.
Stay tuned for more updates on this project and for the final build complete with a second storey addition to this home in Mariginiup!
