Customised Second Storey Additions in Perth
If you are thinking about creating more space in your home and avoiding having to move, consider a customised home extension or addition!
Many people add onto their homes with an extra room or two at the back or side, but what if you don’t have the room to build outwards? Considering all the space above your home, it makes perfect sense to build upwards with a second storey addition.
The Benefits of Building Upwards
Apart from the extra value you’ll add to your home investment, a custom built second storey extension has many benefits.
Save Money and Space
Creating more space by building upwards preserves your precious outdoor space so you can still have an entertaining area or a pool, or a flourishing flower or vegetable garden.
Second storey additions can often be more cost effective than building out because you’re building onto an existing structure, and almost any type of home can support a second storey addition.
There are no noisy and invasive excavations and no need for footings, and your garden and fences won’t be ruined by heavy machinery.
A top floor addition can mean less disruption for the household, and the new extension will blend more easily with the existing home.
Things to Consider When Building Upwards
Design: When you’re planning a second storey extension, there a few things to consider, and design is an all-important factor. When planning the layout and style, make sure you do it according to your house’s current architectural traits.
Space: You’ll need to be clear on what you want the new space for – do you want an extra bedroom, bathroom, rumpus room, or perhaps a parents’ retreat?
Structure: The first thing to consider is the foundations of your home. Can they take the added weight? Will they need to modified or strengthened? What type of stairs will you have, and where is the best place to put them? If you’re planning on adding another bathroom, you’ll have to consider the new plumbing.
Consider additional storage options – you could clear a lot of living space on the ground floor by having storage space in your second storey addition.

David and Josie, and their Mindful Homes team were fantastic to work with. We found their professionalism outstanding from the first time we met them onsite and this continued throughout our major renovation. We ended up with perfectly what we wanted and they managed to not only stick to our plan and drawings but made great practical suggestions that exceeded expectations along the way. We asked for a number of variations during the contracts and they were always willing to work with us managing the process very smoothly and cost effectively for us. All of the finishes have been amazing and we are so very thankful for their help practically delivering us a new home. A great job done!!! We are 100% satisfied clients and highly recommend Mindful Homes! Don’t hesitate giving them a call!
David and Josie are honestly the easiest builders to deal with. We recently completed our home extension with Mindful Homes and the process with these guys from start to finish was just stress-free. Josie was always available on the phone if you needed to ask a question and even offered great suggestions and advice. We were kept informed and consulted every step of the way. It was always a two way conversation with everything including the minor details like where the hot water system should go, instead of just plonking it onto the easiest spot. These guys are genuine builders who care about you and your home.
Thank you Mindful Homes, we love the extension and our home.
