Add-Style matches your budget for a home extension in Sydney’s Northern Beaches
We are a full-service design and build company. Due to our expertise being under one roof, we offer the considerable advantage of being able to give you accurate costing advice at a very early stage in the project.
Our architecture qualified designers will work with your defined budget and identify which type of design satisfies your vision.
An upstairs addition will cost different than an outward home extension, and we can give you a comparison of the costs of either option. We guarantee no surprise charges and additional work cropping up later on.
We also work with a fixed price contract since we know how budget plays a big role in pursuing a home extension in Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Building a home you will appreciate many years into the future
We will design a home that addresses not only your current needs but also needs that may arise in the future as your family grows.
Issues like having a baby, children growing into teenagers, children leaving home and parents ageing can all have an impact on the type of addition you build.
Our design expertise and building experience allow us to look at a home objectively and assess how to modify the existing space to create an addition that will suit you now and into the future.
Creating upstairs additions that add value to your home
Trust that your upstairs home addition will not only open up more space for your family to live in but also add value to your home. We build to offer a style of living that people aspire to.
Over the years, we have seen many of the homes we have worked on sell at significantly improved prices.
Our home additions consistently add genuine value because they are well-designed and well-integrated into the existing structure.
Committed to providing high-quality construction and using only the best materials
Each of our qualified builders and preferred sub-contractors are selected for their high standard of expertise and professionalism. We demonstrate superior craftsmanship and pay great attention to the tiniest details — details that even you may overlook.
We do not choose materials based on their low price, for we can obtain high-quality materials for an affordable price. Since we have been doing this for over 30 years, we have built a relationship with local vendors who can give us a good price for the best construction materials.
Leave the legwork to us — we have an excellent relationship with local councils
Before commencing work on a home extension in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, a Development Application (DA) or a Complying Development Certificate (CDC) must be approved by the local council.
We lodge around 25 CDCs and 5 DAs every year, which means we have an intimate understanding of the guidelines and requirements of local councils and certifiers.
Our knowledgeable team of architecture qualified designers will review, assess and design your home according to the method of development application best suited to your circumstance.
We make it possible for you to remain in your home during construction and save money
There are enormous cost savings to staying at home while building a home extension in Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
Around 95% of our clients are able to stay for the duration of the construction. Our designers deliberately avoid moving essential living spaces such as bathrooms, the laundry, and the kitchen.
Our well-trained builders and tradespeople will accommodate you and your family, making sure there is minimal disruption to your everyday lives.
First Floor Additions in Sydney’s Northern Beaches – How it works
Having been specialising in first floor additions for over 30 years has enabled us to move fast for you.
Our design consultants will be there for the initial meeting. This is where you will discuss your budget, requirements, and your vision.
For the second meeting, our design team, along with the registered architect, will carry out a site inspection. At this time we take measurements to establish design constraints. These include elements such as:
- overall structure
- compliance with council approval or private certifier codes.
Soon after, we will have our third meeting. At this point we present several home extension approaches (we like to give you options) together with an estimate of costs.
Typically at the fourth meeting, after we get approval for the design, we can prepare a more accurate estimate by conducting a further inspection and specification.
Subsequently, upon your approval, we will lodge the DA or the CDC with the council or a private certifier. It generally takes around 3 weeks for a CDC and 6 weeks for a DA to go through for a home extension in Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
We will let you know once we receive approval. Once we do, we will present you with a formal written building contract.
Typically within the next month after signing the contract, we will commence work on your home extension in Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
