A single storey extension is a great way to increase the value of a property, but it’s not the only reason why people choose to expand their single storey home. Whether it’s to make way for a new member of the family, or to add some extra living space, a single storey addition, or a first floor addition, can be a great decision for your family.
The reasons for adding a single storey extension are many. This kind of extension is popular for beginning families as it’s easier for parents to keep track of their children. It’s also the favoured extension for retirees, because no stairs have to be installed. It's also easier to heat and cool than a second storey dwelling, and you get to keep your roof. Some more benefits include the option of a vaulted ceiling, and reduced lawn space, which is easier to maintain.
Some families choose to extend their single storey in order to have a secondary dwelling. These suites, or “granny flats”, are a fantastic way to care for loved ones without the difficulties presented by a second storey extension. Another reason to get a single storey extension is to increase space not just by adding more rooms, but by removing walls and introducing your home to open plan living.

Our Linfield clients wanted to build a deck with roof extending over from their family room. We also converted their external laundry into an internal one and added another shower room. The raked ceilings and soaring highlight windows are a feature of this beautiful addition.
