Extension or Storey Addition for Donger Homes in QLD?

Building an extension has many advantages, with the most significant being the added square footage to your living space in QLD. This added space can be utilised in many ways; an extra bedroom, an office or even a donger home for guests.

Plus, the seamless integration of an extension to your existing home can create a spacious and flowing interior. It could include relocatable classrooms or modular classrooms for corporate or educational purposes. Below, Elite Portables goes over the pros and cons.


Cost-Effective and Less Disruptive

One of the main benefits of an extension is that it’s generally less expensive than a first-storey addition. This is because constructing upwards often involves reinforcing the existing structure to support the additional weight, which can increase costs.

Additionally, extensions can be less disruptive to your daily life. While a first-storey addition might require you to vacate the property for some time, extensions can be carried out with minimal impact on your daily routine. This cost-effectiveness and minimal disruption are significant factors when contemplating temporary office solutions.


Boosting Property Value with an Extension

Adding an extension not only provides you with more living space, but it can also significantly boost the market value of your property. Whether you’re adding a granny flat, expanding the living area, creating an office space or considering a donger home, an extension can make your property more appealing to potential buyers.


Flexible Design Options

Choosing an extension also opens up a world of design possibilities. These can include modern open-plan spaces to traditional designs that match the original home’s architecture, extensions provide the freedom to create a space that suits your lifestyle and aesthetic preferences.

The same flexibility extends to relocatable classrooms and modular classrooms, allowing for a variety of layouts to suit different teaching or meeting styles.


The Right Choice for You

Ultimately, the choice between an extension and a first-storey addition depends on your personal needs, budget and property constraints. While building up can offer benefits, especially in smaller properties or where land is limited, an extension can offer a cost-effective, less disruptive and flexible way to add value and space to your home, whether it be a residential or a temporary office solution.
