Ground Floor Extensions

A ground floor 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 ground floor addition can be a great decision for your family.

The reasons for adding a ground floor extension are many.  This kind of extension is popular for beginning families as it’s often done to give young children their own room. It’s also the favoured extension for retirees, because no stairs have to be installed. A ground floor extension is also generally cheaper than a double storey- it’s easier to heat and cool, and you keep your roof.


Some families choose to extend their ground floor 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 ground extension is to increase space not just by adding more rooms, but by removing walls and introducing your home to open plan living.

Family Homes can be there from start to finish of the extension process. We are committed to completing your dream home and providing the home that your family deserves. We always aim to have your project completed on time, on budget, and with the minimal amount of stress. We are always satisfied when we leaver our clients thrilled with their personally designed new extension.

Featured Project – Ground Floor Extension from Linfield

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.
