Top 5 Advantages of a Second Storey Extension

  1. Get more Space without Moving House

This is probably the number one advantage of adding a second storey extension to your home especially if you already live in your preferred neighbourhood that meets all your lifestyle needs. So, by opting for a second storey extension you will gain more living space and live more comfortably in a home that you have designed in the neighbourhood that you already love.

  1. Keep Your Backyard

By building upwards instead of extending to the side or rear of your home, you won’t sacrifice outdoor space letting you keep that great yard you love. Also, if your house is on a small block, building a second storey extension is the right choice to maximise your living space without compromise.

  1. The Views!

By adding a second storey extension you may end up with stunning views that you would have never been able to enjoy if you had built a rear or side extension. Even better, include a nice deck  as part of your second storey extension plans to get even more benefit. So, take advantage of what your area offers, go upwards and enjoy those views!

  1. Makeover the Ground Floor

This a practical idea to consider  when planning a second storey extension and a wonderful idea if your ground floor needs a new look. Once you’ve decided to go through the house renovations process why not hit two birds with one stone? Your ground floor has to provide access to your second floor as well as structural support, so some necessary changes will be required. Why not use this opportunity to make some nice home design changes to the first floor too?

  1. Raise the Market Value of your Home

Finally, the last advantage of adding a second storey extension is being able to add value to your home. In other words, by building a second storey to your house you will raise its market value.

So, if your family has outgrown the house you live in, contact Urban Scene Construction to learn more about building a superb second storey extension that will help you take advantage of these great ideas.
