Discover the right type of second storey extension for you

There are so many different types of second storey extensions to choose from when you are considering an extension to your home. It does not matter what type of home you have, whether you are living in a small pre-war cottage, a modern home, or something in between, Supa Group has the skill and experience to craft a second storey extension that you will love.

The key thing to consider when thinking about a second storey extension is how you might change the layout of your existing home to enhance liveability and access once you have your new extension in place. After all, if you are thinking of adding more bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs, you may be able to repurpose a room or two downstairs.

The beauty of working with Supa Group is that our design consultants have the experience and understanding that is needed to envision a suitable layout, and go through how this will work in your home. Every second storey extension with Supa Group is custom designed to suit your exact specifications, so whether you are choosing a parent’s retreat for your new second storey or if you are thinking about putting in three bedrooms and a new bathroom, you will be 100% satisfied with the end result.

Types of second storey extensions

A second storey extension is an ideal way to get the space you are after without having to move into a new home — and you may just add value along the way! We can design a second storey extension as individual as your family.

Living space extension

If you are looking to contain the bedrooms on the bottom level, the second storey can become a separate space for cooking and living, allowing for privacy downstairs.

Sleeping space extension

Inversely, moving the bedrooms upstairs can create even more opportunity for separate living. Popular inclusions including additional bathrooms and new living areas.

Extension for additional space

Will my second storey extension interfere with my heritage overlay?

Melbourne is home to some incredible history and architecture from days gone by. Due to the nature of some of these homes and buildings, and the historical significance they hold, they are necessarily protected by heritage listings.

What this means is that certain types of extensions or renovations will not be permitted to the extent that they interfere with the heritage features of the home. When you work with Supa Group our design consultation team can discuss exactly what you can (and cannot do) with your second storey extension and will ensure that you can work within any design constraints that may be in place. Second storey extensions are possible on homes with a heritage overlay in some circumstances, the key factor is the level of visibility from the street.

Book your free design consultation and we can discuss how you might proceed with your second storey extension in your home.

What are the stages of a rear house extension?

We have been in business for over 40 years. In that time we have developed a successful method of working whereby every aspect of design and consultation is considered, and our customers can come out the other side delighted with the end result. This method is:

  1. The Design Phase: Talk to our design consultants and discuss everything you are after from your second storey extension.
  2. The Contract Preparation Phase: We will organise the permits that are needed and ensure we are ready to go when the time comes.
  3. The Build Phase: All systems go – our team will commence and complete your second storey extension in the allocated time frame.

Can my family stay in our home during the second storey extension?

Many of our clients choose to stay in their home during their second storey extension. So long as you have access to bathroom, sleeping, and kitchen facilities and are safe in your home, there will be no restriction on staying put. Each extension is different and has difference impacts on the existing layout., which in turn impacts on your family. You should discuss this with your designer during the design phase.

How much is my second storey extension going to cost?

Every second storey extension will, of course, be priced slightly differently based on what is involved. Naturally, we discuss every aspect of your build with you prior to commencing and ensure that you are agreed on the final price before we do any work. Once the price is agreed this does not change (unless you choose to make changes during the build – and again, these will all be by consent only).

The price is included in the building contract. There is a mechanism for changes called Variation Orders (VO’s) which allows for minor changes to the contract after it is signed.

What our customers are saying

Andrew and Mark of Yarraville

Despite all the stories you hear about how difficult building can be it was a fairly painless process thanks to the professionalism of the Supa Group team and the quality of their people. We even lived in the house throughout the process.

Howard Maher of North Balwyn

Supagroup completed a second story extension on our 1930’s deco house. The team, my wife and I worked  hard to design an ambitious addition to work in contrast with the existing building. The outcome is simply stunning and was completed in a timely fashion and to budget. Read full review here.

John and Grazie of Box Hill North

The works commenced in November and as promised the second storey was at lock up well before Christmas.
