Budgeting for an House Extension in Sydney

Before you can determine your final budget, there are a few things that must happen. Based on the size, quality, and complexity of the construction associated with the build, we’ll calculate a rough estimate per square metre in the early stages.

Following that, we’ll work with all contractors throughout the design phase to insure that everything is within budget. Be aware that various drawings, permits, and reports will be required at this stage, all of which must be budgeted for in addition to the costs directly associated with the construction.

We’ll be able to calculate your fixed price and provide a final quote once all of this preliminary work is completed. Choice of materials, fixtures and fittings, labour, equipment, and timeframe, as well as any additional expenditures on luxury items, will all play a role.

Luxury house extensions

House extensions in Sydney that are elegant

Move outwards, not outwards. Extend your home if you’ve outgrown it. Building a stylish kitchen extension, fully equipped home gym, orangery relaxation room, or open-plan entertaining space for family meals and parties with friends is now far easier than ever before. You could live somewhere completely new without having to move if you combine this with a refurbishment of the rest of your home.

Extensions to a house: considerations

When adding a ground-floor extension to your Sydney home, keep the following issues in mind:
  • Budget – discuss this with your designer in detail at the start of the project.
  • Natural factors – such as land slope, orientation, and trees:
    • A ground floor extension can be built on gently sloping land. Slightly sloping land, on the other hand, might be suitable for a two-storey addition.
    • A south-facing rear extension, for example, may need to be single-story to allow plenty of light from skylights to penetrate deep into the house.
    • The location of existing trees on your property or on a neighbouring property may influence whether or not a ground floor extension is permitted.
  • Council Regulations and Building Code Requirements – setbacks from side boundaries, landscaping space, and not exceeding the home’s maximum floor area are all important Council considerations when considering options for expanding. A first-floor extension is often a wise option to pursue if your property has large areas of paving, driveways, pools, etc.
  • Shadows – first-floor extensions must be designed with the new structure’s shadows in mind. A sufficient amount of daylight must be provided to neighbouring properties. This is governed by strict guidelines.

If you’re planning a first-floor deck as part of an extension, keep in mind that Council will want to make sure your neighbours‘ privacy is protected. Similarly, your extension should be designed to keep your privacy from neighbouring houses.

Check to see if you need to make any changes to your own home insurance during the extension. Legislation — Before beginning construction, a licenced builder must provide the necessary insurances.

How do I locate the best house extensions builders in my area?

The first step towards your ideal renovation, extension, or new construction is to find the best builders in your area. But how do you pick the wheat from the chaff when there are so many local builders to choose from?

We’ll look at four important factors to consider when looking for the best local builders.

1. Are they in close proximity to you?

The first question to ask is whether or not there are any builders in your area. Some builders will present themselves as a local company when they are actually located elsewhere.

It’s not uncommon for builders to have multiple websites, each aimed at a different market, and then subcontract the work to someone local. While you will eventually find a local builder, it may not be the one you were hoping for.

Check for a local phone number and address to insure that the builders are actually close by.

2. Knowledge of the area

When it comes to something as important as your home, you want to hire people who have worked in similar situations before. You’d like that experience to be as close to home as possible. Working in the same place for years, if not decades, is a true test of quality and service.

Builders will have a better understanding of local properties if they have a lot of experience near them. With many neighbouring homes built at a similar time, they often have the same structure, design and materials, all of which will give builders a better starting point for work on your home.

Builders who work in their community will be familiar with all of the best local suppliers. This will enable them to obtain the best materials at a reasonable cost, which will be passed on to you. On the flipside, if a builder has experience but only in other areas, is raises questions as to why they’re moving about so much – and have to go further afield to find customers.

3. Certifications

As with any contractor, you want local builders to have accreditations and memberships to back up their experience and expertise. 

4. Local reviews

That leads us nicely onto the final point – reviews. They say the proof of the pudding is in the eating. Who better to tell you about a local builder’s work than the people whose homes they’ve been working on?

Check for local builders’ reviews on sites like Facebook and Google to see what previous and existing customers think of their work – and highlight any potential problems before working with them.

A truly amazing group of people to work with!! The team completely remodelled our new office space for our driving schools . Everything from the construction to the electrical and even the soundproofing was completed to a professional, high standard and on time. They are not only constructors, but also problem solvers! We are on the ground floor of a multi-story building and have received nothing but positive feedback from everyone. People are still peering in from other floors to see it. It is truly the centre of attention in the building!!

The space is absolutely beautiful! We owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to George, Jason, and the rest of the team for making this possible. We've only been here a couple of months, but it feels like much longer...

We recently completed a major extension, which included raising our house to add additional bedrooms, bathrooms, laundry, indoor and outdoor living space, and reconfiguring our existing first floor to better suit our growing family. One of our biggest concerns before embarking on such a large project was cost overruns, and I'm happy to report that there were none! In comparison to the other builders we contacted, their quote was the most detailed and comprehensive – I could see room for variation in other quotes that didn't include everything they did.

They provided a practical and cost-effective solution to our drainage concerns, which were not seen as a problem or even identified by other builders. When other issues arose during the construction, they were dealt with quickly and, in some cases, with multiple options.

This is the house extension contractors you've been looking for! Excellent value, excellent work, and outstanding service! We needed to update the kitchen and main bathroom, as well as add a second level with two bedrooms with en-suites, to bring our lovely (and very old) house into the twenty-first century.

The problem was that there were several building restrictions on old homes in the area, and we didn't like any of the plans that previous owners had drawn up. We needed someone who could manage and complete the project from beginning to end because we both work full-time. We needed someone we could trust to turn our ideas into reality because a house is such a large investment. They were upfront and honest from the beginning, and  they offered references. Their philosophy appealed to us, and he listened to our requests without dismissing them.

Renovation-Builders-Sydney-Experts-review-stars5

We chose a fantastic builder who was extremely personal and flexible in all aspects of the project (unlike other builders that lock you in with large variation charges every time you change a small aspect of the build). Builders Sydney Experts also provided top-notch builders who were clean and accommodating to all of our lifestyle needs (for example, we were able to stay in our home while they built the second level extensions, which saved us a lot of money because we didn't have to move out for the entire renovation!).
Thank you for making our construction process go so smoothly and for being such a pleasure to work with!

We will definitely use you again for any future House Extensions.
