Period home extensions

Ground floor extensions

Ground floor period home extensions are ideal for those who wish to maintain the home’s original façade. Rear extensions allow you to modernise living spaces, allow for open plan living and easy transition to outdoor alfresco areas.

With over 20 years in the industry, we have extensive experience working with heritage overlays and the challenges that can arise when extending a period property.

Second Storey extensions

Second-storey extensions are a great option if your home is on a small block or you wish to retain your backyard space. Keeping heritage styling in mind, we can build a second level that maintains the architectural styling of the ground floor below.

When you work directly with the builder, you have the opportunity to be in regular contact with the person directly responsible for the project. This more personal relationship allows for greater attention to detail which is critical when working with period homes such as those from the Edwardian, Victorian and Federation eras

Period home renovation 

The ability to undertake a period home renovation in conjunction with your extension means that you can update and modernise areas of your existing home alongside the expansion.

Your renovations will be carefully planned to make the most of your building timeline so you can enjoy your new space sooner.
