House extension costs

Each home extension will have different requirements and with it, varying budgetary limitations. In general, an average sized home extension costs between $200,000 and $400,000. Second storey extensions tend to be slightly cheaper than a ground floor extension. This is because a second storey doesn’t involve foundation work and other related expenses. The main factors contributing to the price of the home extension are:

  • Size of your house
  • Whether you are adding another floor
  • Quality of materials used
  • Appliances and fittings featured in your design
  • Permit and regulation costs
  • Costs of hiring external professionals
  • Demolition costs – including removal of hazardous materials

We understand that everyone has a different vision in mind when it comes to how their home should look. We also appreciate that everyone has a different budget. That’s why we take the time to understand your needs so we can tailor the perfect package just for you.

Our house extension costs are affordable, meaning everyone can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from going with the best.

Other home extension cost considerations

There can be a range of other factors to consider such as heating and air conditioning, number of bathrooms and kitchens, cost of higher quality material, and furnishing expenses, to name a few. Furthermore, if you’re adding an extra bathroom or kitchen you would need to account for plumbing, bathroom and kitchen fittings as well. Bathrooms and kitchens are usually the most expensive extensions for this reason, followed by living spaces and bedrooms.

Saving on extension costs

It’s important for you to consider all the different elements that will go into your building extensions. One of the biggest factors that will affect the bill will be the size of the extension itself. Looking at a possible smaller extension space could slash a noticeable chunk off your expenses. Alternatively, you could look at converting your garage to a room which would be a cheaper solution. Whichever project you decide to undertake, we have an enthusiastic team of specialists to help you re-craft your perfect home.

Is building a home extension worth it?

Our team understands that no home is truly stagnant. As such, it’s important for your home to be able to meet your needs on a daily basis. For some, this means refreshing your space with a quality renovation project, while for others it means optimising and expanding the space with a hearty house extension.

As master builders, we believe in the power of a quality home extension. Our home extensions are intricately plotted to increase your home’s liveability, but also to stand the test of time. 

Compared to moving to a larger house in a different location, building extensions are both cost-effective and time-saving. You can save on a lot of relocation costs including marketing the home, real estate agents, conveyancing, repairs, cleaning and moving. This also means your family life will experience minimal disruption. Ultimately, an extension also contributes to the property’s overall value, a sound investment should your circumstances change along the line. 

How much additional value can a house extension add to a property?

It is difficult to estimate the exact amount of how much value a house extension will add to your home as this can also depend on your location and the market value of your property. It also differs based on whether it is a bathroom, kitchen, living room or bedroom extension. Interestingly, we find that having an extra bedroom adds the most value to the home. This may be something you want to consider if you are renovating and planning to sell your home, as it’s good to know what buyers are willing to pay extra for.

How much does it cost to build an extension on my house?

The cost of a house extension will depend on what you choose to have done. For instance, if you simply want to redesign a room with new features and a fresh coat of paint, then the price for this will be considerably less than if you wanted to add a whole new storey. At Cameron Construction, we provide affordable, fixed prices so you know exactly what to expect from day one.

What is the cheapest way to build a house extension?

The cheapest way to extend your home is by choosing to work with a professional team. The reason being that they can provide you with advice as to what will work best according to your budget. Going with an expert team will also reduce the risk of damage being caused to your home, which can lead to expensive repair bills.

How do I build an extension to my house?

The best way to build an extension to your house is by contacting an experienced team of professional builders. The reason being that they will have the skills and equipment to ensure that the process is quick and seamless. Doing things yourself is dangerous, inefficient and will leave you with sub-par results.

How much extra value can a house extension add to a property?

A good start is to compare similar projects in your area. The addition of extra bedrooms can have the biggest impact on the sale price. The more bedrooms a house has, generally the dearer it is. It’s challenging to put an exact figure on how much it will increase by as this would depend on the extension project itself. For instance, if you build a new bedroom and a bathroom in an area where buyers look for this feature, your return on investment will be much higher. Talk to one of our specialists for more details.

What permissions and approvals will you need for a home extension?

Any form of home building extensions requires permissions and approvals from your Local Council or Building Surveyor. Once approval has been obtained, Cameron Construction can create your home extension within the parameters. The permits required can include:
