Is your home bursting at the seams with teenagers and their friends? Is space at a premium now the grandchildren are coming to stay? As time goes on, needs and lifestyles change. A home that once ticked all the boxes may no longer have enough space or a large enough garden to accommodate family and friends. It’s time to upsize. Or is it?
Before you join the sellers and buyers in Queenstown’s hot property market, consider creating more space in your existing home. At Refresh, we have a network of house extension builders in Queenstown and Wanaka who could expand your kitchen, add a second storey, build an extra lounge or cover the deck to give you the extra space you desire.

The majority of homes in Queenstown and Wanaka are ultra-modern new builds with a few heritage buildings sprinkled in. Due to their clean lines and geometricity, most modern homes can accommodate an extension.
Heritage homes are a bit trickier. Since the council requires them to maintain their curb appeal to a certain standard, extensions off the back of heritage homes are more practical and common. There’s also the option to expand up, instead of out, with the addition of a second storey or roof expansion. This style of extension makes it easy to retain the charm and character without dominating the existing dwelling.
Of course, homes in the region are not limited to these two styles and neither are home extensions. A Renovation Consultant can help you determine what kind of extension works best with your home, budget, and lifestyle.
Each Renovation Partner has a preferred network of trusted professionals, including tradespeople and suppliers, allowing them to provide a wide array of house extension services.
House extension costs generally start around the $100,000* mark. Ultimately, you can expect to spend more if you’re thinking about a second storey or luxury addition, while a ground level or simple small home extension is a more affordable option.
*Costs are rough estimates and are subject to change. For a fixed quote accurate to your specific project, please consult your local Refresh Renovation Partner.
