First floor additions in Ryde
What drew you to Ryde? Is it the great community spirit? The exceptional primary schools? Or the easy 15-minute commute to the CBD? Whatever it is, you know you’ve made the right choice by choosing to live and raise your family here.
With new houses going up every day, more and more families are moving to Ryde for the same reasons that you did. It is a great suburb for professionals young and old, as well as retirees.
Evidently, Ryde will only become stronger in the future. With a first floor addition in Ryde, your home can better accommodate your growing family, so you don’t ever have to leave this great suburb.
There is this rather common belief that a home renovation is a stressful undertaking. What with several service providers with several contracts, plus securing council approval, and conducting site inspections and more.
This is where design and construct companies have a leg up in the competition.
Building you the home you envisioned, with respect to your needs and budget
Talk to us about your vision for your home. Let us know your budget and we will work with it.
Both are of equal importance. We believe that sticking to a budget does not mean sacrificing your vision.
We cannot stress enough the importance of working with you to design your first floor addition. It is through this that we can customise a design tailored to your family’s tastes and needs.
It is by creating a design that you are happy with and that is mindful of your budget that we provide you a valuable return on your investment.
Hence we do a lot of listening during our initial meetings to learn what exactly you need, by asking questions like:
- What is your ideal lifestyle?
- What are your family’s current special needs?
- Are you planning to have a bigger family?
Then, we make use of the most innovative programs to help you visualise your design
Using an innovative design software program called ArchiCAD, we will present you with computer-generated images. This way, you are able to see how your renovation ideas will look.
You can visualise the design in its completed form, and make changes as you go. With this method, we will be able to differentiate smart designs from impractical ones.
Most importantly, any renovation must put you and your family first. This is your home and we want you to be thrilled with your home renovation for many years to come!
A unified workflow with zero conflict between architect, builder, and subcontractors
There’s no conflict between architect, owner, builder, and subcontractors as we work on your first floor addition and when things go wrong.
We are a team and we work as one. It is our responsibility to ensure that your home renovation in North Ryde gets done on time and without mishap.
There is a single contract to refer to and we assure a seamless delivery from initial concept through to completion.
There will be no pointing fingers and no passing the buck with our design and build company.
Securing council approval quickly
Applying for CDCs or DAs can be a long process with a longer waiting time without having a good relationship with the Ryde Council, but we can secure approval in no time.
We lodge many CDCs and DAs every year, including for house extensions in Ryde. This means we have an intimate understanding of the guidelines and requirements of Ryde Council and certifiers.
In addition, we will also obtain structural certifications, advising on materials and fittings, take care of site preparation, rubbish removal, and organisation of trades and final handover.
We commence work on your home extension usually within two to four weeks of signing the formal written building contract.
Stay home during the renovation process
We do not want you to have to temporarily move out of your home any longer than absolutely necessary. Often we can help you avoid having to move out at all. This is made possible by perfect timing.
Done right and with proper care, we can usually have our clients live in their homes throughout the entire renovation period.
Staying at home during the build rather than renting temporary lodging saves you a lot of money. Around 95% of our clients are able to stay for the duration of the construction. Our builders and tradespeople accommodate homeowners and work around them with minimal disruption.
Our designers deliberately avoid moving essential living spaces such as bathrooms, laundry, and kitchen unless absolutely necessary, again to minimise the disruption to the homeowner.
We want your experience of having a home renovation in Ryde to be smooth and stress-free.
We are a team of experts in staircase and stairwell design in Ryde
A beautifully designed and structurally-sound staircase adds significant value to your home. A visually appealing staircase is your home’s centrepiece.
We can customise a staircase design that showcases your tastes and personality. It is where beauty and functionality meet.
The correct positioning of the stairs to your new first floor addition is crucial. You do not want your staircase to get in the way of downstairs living.
The best place to build a staircase is where it enhances the layout and look of the whole entry area. We will integrate it into your existing layout that one could never guess your home was originally a single-level house.
We carefully plan the design and make sure your home can handle the additional weight of an upper level.
Our qualified architect in conjunction with our builder and carpentry team will ensure the design and construction of your staircase goes smoothly.
The result will be a staircase that connects your new upstairs area seamlessly to downstairs.
