House Extension Cost
If you need more room in your home but you would like to avoid moving, you may want to consider adding a second storey or ground floor extension to extend your existing home. While a house extension can be an expensive renovation project, it’s a great way to keep your home and get the additional living space you need – while avoiding the additional costs of moving house.
At Nicholas Carpentry, we are professional home extension builders in New South Wales. If you are interested in expanding your living space, we’re the best choice. Wondering how much a house extension will cost? Find out below, or call us now to get a quote for your project right away.
What Affects House Extension Cost?
There are a number of different factors that can affect the overall building cost of a house extension. Below, we’ve put together a list of a few of the biggest things that contribute to the cost of your project.
- Ground floor extension vs. second storey – Building a ground floor extension is much cheaper than second storey extensions or an additional room to your second storey. Second storey additions are more technically complex and may require you to move out of your home during the renovation process.
- Size of extension – The larger the extension, the more it will cost. Because of this, costs for extensions are often quoted per square metre. This provides you with an idea of how much your project will cost for differently-sized rooms.
- Type of room – A bedroom, a den or a living area will be cheaper to add than a bathroom or kitchen, for example, since there will not be any need for specialised plumbing and electrical upgrades, new appliances, and other such costs.
- Fixtures, finishes & appliances – Just like any other renovation, the quality of the fixtures, finishes, appliances and materials you use will cause the price to change quite a bit.
Let’s take a bathroom as an example. If you want a simple tub/shower combo, a standard toilet and a reasonably-priced vanity/cabinet, your costs will be lower compared to putting in a floor-to-ceiling glass shower, built-in-shelving, and using premium tile and other such materials which will add to the cost.
