Second Storey Additions

A second storey extension (or first floor addition) is a great way of transforming your home to add more space and increase its value. Whether you want to create more rooms for a growing family or give yourself a greater view of the beautiful Northern Beaches landscape, a second storey extension is a great option for revamping your home.

Family Home have over 25 years’ experience building quality second storey additions – North Shore residents can rest assured that we’ll get the job right. We’ll take care of the entire process from concept to completion including designing, planning, construction, and ensuring that you are kept in the loop through consultations at every stage.

Our team works with your family by holding weekly onsite meetings during construction to keep you involved and informed with each existing space. In most cases, there’s no need to move out of the house. We endeavour to minimise disruption and inconvenience wherever possible.

A second storey addition can be a daunting project to undertake, but we’ll ensure your specifications are met and the build is completed on time and on budget. You can count on our team who have a demonstrated track record of success when it comes to building quality second storey additions in the north shore and northern beaches.

Building a Second Storey Extension – How it Works

Most first floor additions involve adding between 2-4 bedrooms and one bathroom on top of the existing dwelling. Other families prefer adding an additional living space upstairs, particularly when there are good views which is often the case in the North Shore and Eastern suburbs. Whatever your goals are, the award-winning team at Family Home can help execute your vision.

Our process starts with a consultation where we discuss your requirements and best solutions, and then design the layout tailored to your needs as well as the finishes you would like incorporated. You’ll then be given a proposal with design sketches, specifications, budget, and timeframe. If you approve, we’ll move forward with the agreements and approvals before commencing construction.

Featured Project – Second Storey Addition at St Ives

Our clients from St Ives needed two additional bedrooms and office space, as well as a new kitchen layout. They didn’t want to encroach on the backyard too much, so we decided that a second storey addition would be the best solution. We built the large kitchen and family room at ground level overlooking the pool.
