The biggest growth area in our projects is now undoubtedly second story additions.
With good economical vacant land limited in the Illawarra area many people are now opting for a second story addition in lieu of building a new home.
Second story additions are also called first floor additions, attic conversions, cape cod extensions or top floor additions.
They are all the same thing, they can be standard construction with frames and trusses or can be complex pitched roofs with dormer windows.
A second story addition is much cheaper, faster and less intrusive to home owners than same floor extensions as work is completed above the existing home rather than in the owners yard.
When there is limited room to extend or a tight budget, this is the popular solution by adding another floor.
Not only can a second story addition add significant value to your home, capture available views and preserve your outdoors entertaining space but it also frees up your downstairs areas for more spacious living.
In most cases the owner's are not required to leave their home while construction takes place.
