When you’ve run out of space, a house extension eliminates the need to pack up your life and move to a bigger home. But housing extensions aren’t always built out of necessity. Sometimes they’re just a great opportunity to increase the resale value of your property or to create that home theatre or gym you’ve always wanted.
Whatever your motivation behind your home extension, our Renovation Consultants in Marlborough are here to help. Just get in touch to arrange a complimentary consultation and begin your home extension adventure.
Renovations can be stressful; there’s no doubt about it, with poor communication and disorganisation the most common issues for homeowners. At Refresh, we believe these problems are easily avoided with a thorough planning process. So we’ve fine-tuned our approach to renovations to provide our clients with an enjoyable experience. Because, at the end of the day, we’re creating your dream home. And that’s something to be excited about.
To kick off your house extension project, you’ll meet with a local Marlborough Renovation Consultant who will be your single point of contact throughout your entire renovation. This is your opportunity to outline your goals and budget for the project. And, if you’re not quite sure what you want, your Renovation Consultant is there to provide expert advice and inspiration.
Each Renovation Consultant has a professional network that includes designers, architects, and engineers who can create realistic concept drawings for you to visualise your house extension design. This is the time to make any plan changes; it’s more expensive to do so down the line. Ultimately though, you’re always in control.
After you’ve approved the plans and your project’s cost estimate, your Renovation Consultant will arrange the necessary permits and coordinate the contractors and suppliers so construction on your house extension can get started. It’s that easy.
Marlborough’s varied property styles may influence the type of extension you build. In rural areas where lifestyle blocks are abundant, in Renwick or the Wairua Valley for instance, homes are often already quite spacious. But building an open extension to create an airy outdoor living space that flows seamlessly back inside is a dreamy way to enhance any property. A full outdoor kitchen and lounge set-up is the ultimate addition for those who love to entertain.
In medium to high-density areas like Picton, your renovation doesn’t need to stop at the extension; adding extra space to your home can give you freedom to alter the existing interior layout. For example, by building a chic glass kitchen extension you can then replace the original kitchen with a family room or a home office. There’s also the option to extend up, though there may be zoned height limitations. In smaller urban sections, small, terraced house extension ideas could provide a creative solution.
We’re here for you every step of the way, from creating house extension plans and designs to obtaining the necessary Code Compliance Certificates. From start to finish, our Renovation Consultants work alongside their established networks of industry professionals to deliver an excellent experience and outstanding results.
