Why consider adding a second storey addition?

Adding a second-storey addition not only gives you the space that you require but will help you boost your home’s value and make your living space more comfortable and convenient.

Have you outgrown your home but love where you live on the Central Coast? If you answer yes to this question, a second-storey addition may well be the answer to your problems. Adding a second storey is a fantastic way to increase the value of your home by increasing the space within it, as well as boost capital growth by creating potential views that enhance your overall living experience. We all know the Central Coast is a stunning region, and boosting your views is something on the top of every homeowner’s list.

A second-storey addition ensures that you and your family are comfortable in your home and enables you to enjoy it for many years to come.

WHY CONSIDER SECOND STOREY ADDITIONS?

Adding a second storey to your home or space may seem like a big task, but with the assistance of Blue Horizons Projects, it can actually provide many benefits to you. First, you are essentially getting a whole floor of new space for you and your family to live and grow. Second storey additions are a great way to transform your central coast home and provide that much-needed space and room. If you have currently outgrown the space of your home or feel cramped, but love where you live, building a second storey is sometimes the perfect option. 

  • A secondary benefit of building a second storey addition is the added value it brings to your home. By adding this extra space, you raise the market value of the property, which is fantastic if you eventually decide to sell. The Central Coast is quickly becoming a popular place to live, due to its gorgeous coastal views and close proximity to Sydney and Newcastle, thus making properties high demand.
  • If you had previously been considering a ground floor extension, consider a second storey addition instead. Don’t give up your beautiful backyard or front lawn! Keep your entertaining area and garden by building upwards instead. You still get the same effect – more space – but it also allows you to keep your outdoor space. 
  • Do you live near the beach or a nice garden or bushland? Capitalise on these views by adding a second storey, which will let you enjoy your picturesque surroundings.
  • Privacy is a big concern for homeowners these days, and a second storey addition can provide separation from your family and guests. It can also reduce the ability of neighbours our passers-by to see into your home as well as provide noise reduction.
  • Second Storey Additions are often seen as too expensive, but in reality, they are usually a more cost-effective way of gaining more space, as there are already foundations of which to build upon. Ground floor extensions require a concrete slab. Buying a new house and moving for the sake of more space can also end up costing you more.
