Major Alterations

Major alterations are more than a second storey addition or renovation. These are projects of the largest scale, second only to building a new house, and make the biggest difference to your home.

Some major alterations are done to reflect a lifestyle change- many of our major alteration clients are families with young children who are already in a great location but need more space (either for the children or the parents!) Or, they’re ready to increase their home’s value to sell. Other times it’s a way of getting their dream home on their block of land without having to demolish. A major alteration has the potential to dramatically increase the worth of a property without the hassle of starting from scratch.

If you are looking for a new home but want to keep important qualities of your old one, such as a great location or unique features, then this form of renovation is for you.

Major alterations can be expensive and time consuming, the largest of these projects taking over a year to complete. This can also mean that they have the potential to produce the biggest payoff for either your family or a buyer. Family Homes has done many major alterations over the years for a wide variety of circumstances. If you are considering or planning a major alteration, Family Homes can help you from start to finish.

Featured Project – Major Alteration at Pymble

An example of one of our major renovations is this home in Pymble. This major alteration involved a second storey addition and a complete interior renovation, as well as some landscaping, external rendering, and a re-pitched roof. The kitchen was reoriented to catch the afternoon sun, the master bedroom extended, and a new living, dining, and study area were added to the ground floor. The second floor became a teenage retreat with a separate study area and en suite bathroom. The backyard was landscaped and gained an outdoor entertainment area complete with a spa and covered deck. The home was also rendered and repainted, and the front yard landscaped to complete the renovation.

Now this home gives the parents and their kids a bit more space to themselves.
