If you love your home but need more space, extending provides an ideal solution.

That’s why Refresh exists - we can take care of every detail for you: just tell us your ideas!
Refresh Manukau can take care of the design and build of your home extension - as well as every step in between. This means you don’t need to worry about trying to keep consistency across two separate design and build companies; we provide it all, including:

Home extension costs can vary significantly depending on the size of the extension, structural considerations, hidden damage within the home etc. In the past, Refresh has carried out home extensions that fall within a range of $90,000 - $350,000+. If you have a budget you would like to stay within, Refresh will work with you to create a feasible design and plan that works for you and your lifestyle.
Yes. Refresh will take care of the application process required for building consent and, where necessary, resource consent. Building consent is generally required for any structural changes made to homes, while resource consent is required for projects which might affect the surrounding environment, land and neighbourhood.
Same-level extensions are generally the most affordable option, as structural weight-bearing considerations need to be taken into account for second storey additions. However, if you live on a small section, a second storey addition might be the most feasible option. The third option, and likely most costly, is a basement extension or conversion. It will require extensive excavation - but could be well worth it.
