The Benefits Of Adding An Extension To Your Home
Adding extra space to your current home is a great alternative to going through the hassle of moving. House-hunting can be a lengthy, costly process. Adding an extension, garage, or deck to your house can get you all the benefits that a new home would at a fraction of the cost. In fact, you often add value to your property ‒ and thus to your net worth ‒ by building an extension.
A second story, verandah, or carport all need to be designed and drafted before they can be built and enjoyed. But first, let’s consider why adding extensions to your home may be a solution you didn’t even know you were looking for.
Add To Your Quality Of Life
After the pandemic, many more of us in Australia have been working from home. While this arrangement has allowed far more family time and better work-life balance, the novelty can wear off quickly if you don’t have an office to work from. Adding an extra room or two to your existing home to function as an office can be more affordable and enjoyable in the long run than commuting to an office or co-work space.
Adding a home office to your property can be as simple as building an additional garage. You can also build more living space into your home with extra rooms or utilise attics to make space for your family as they grow up.
Increase Your Property’s Value
It goes without saying that adding more square meterage to your property will up its total value. When it comes time to sell, you’ll be able to profit from any changes you make now. Additional bedrooms, bathrooms, and home offices are an investment well worth making. Building verandahs, pergolas, or decks leading out from your house into your garden is also an easy way to make your home more social-friendly. Not only will you be able to host your friends and family in more comfort, but you’ll make your home a much more attractive buy in the future.
Bring In Additional Income
Designing and drafting house plans for an additional free-standing unit or space with its own entry can also be an efficient way to earn some extra dollars every month. With the rise of holiday rentals, you could be earning a significant income through renting out additional space on your property, especially if you live in an area that is a holiday destination.
Adding an extension to your home is the easiest way to increase the value of your property, unlock more space for home use or even earn an extra income.
