Ok, so you’ve decided to extend your home and create more space for you and your family, this is all exciting however before you break out the bubbly, there are a number of steps to consider. Due to the high housing prices, many people are choosing to extend their homes, and stay in the area and that’s a fantastic idea if you have the space to do so.

The average ground level extension is around $1,450 per square metre, as we recommend you do an incredible amount of research to ensure that you’re 100% certain to go ahead with the change, as the consultation and planning process can be costly. We also suggest looking into how much bigger you would like to extend, as the Development Application is a fixed cost. Ensuring that you establish a set cost before the process commences will guarantee there are no added charges.


If you have a tight budget, we suggest that you only include the things that are a necessity, such as the structure, carpet and other essentials as other features inside of the property can be added at any time in the future.

If you have the funds to do so, we recommend selecting the most appropriate blinds for your home. Depending on what type is best suited for your lifestyle; whether you like the simplicity of roller blinds, or would prefer the more noticeable option of roman blinds, there are many to choose from, the trick is to do your homework. If your formal living area requires are more refined look, curtains may be the way to go. Curtains can be tied back at any time and cater to whatever colour suits your style. While many are lead to believe curtains do have a more regal look, they’re not always the best option, it depends on the room and what you prefer.


Even though you might receive an exact figure on the cost of the whole change, there may be some unforeseeable circumstances such as problems or extras that may need to be resolved urgently. Hiring an experienced builder will ensure that all elements are completed correctly.
