Which way should I extend?
There are many different kinds of renovations and extensions you can undertake and the sheer number of available options can be overwhelming. Knowing what type of project is going to work best in your home and for your family is the best way to sort through this confusion. There are four basic types of extensions; Second storey extensions, ground floor or same level extensions, outdoor areas including decks, entertaining areas and carports and finally the lift and build under.
Second Storey Extensions
As the name suggests, this is an extension built on top of your existing dwelling. A second storey addition is the most cost effective way to extend your home, maximising the floor area without losing any precious backyard space. This type of extension may also add significant value to your property, by increasing the number of bedrooms and bathrooms in your home.
When you take your living to the next level, you can choose to either match and blend the design and style to suit the architecture of the existing dwelling or Update and modernise the appearance of the house for added street appeal.
Ground Floor Extensions
Ground floor, same level or existing level extensions vary greatly in design and outcome and typically involve minor to major alterations to the existing house whether its a high-set or low-set brick veneer.
At Update Renovate we strongly believe in designing and building the extension to tie in and appear part of the existing house by matching the roof shape, external finishes and architectural elements.
Decks and Outdoor Entertaining Areas
In Brisbane your house just isn’t complete without an outdoor entertaining area or deck to soak up the Queensland sunshine. Whether your house is a low-set or a high-set, an outdoor entertaining area extends your living and often opens up the house to take full advantage of the sunshine and breezes.

Lift and Build Under
Lift and build under extensions are a typical extension for Update Renovate of high set Queenslanders common in inner city Brisbane.
By lifting the house clients often maximise any local or city views, gain sought-after off street parking whilst restoring and enhancing the Queenslander charm of the house. This type of extension and renovation is relatively costly in comparison due to the lifting, restumping and heavy ground works involved such as excavation, retaining walls and new concrete slab areas.
