Second Storey Extensions & Builds
Build On Top & Second Storey Extensions:
Can I build on top of an existing structure or request a second story extension? Can I raise a brick house? This is a question asked by many and if you watch enough television you’ve probably seen a documentary or two where companies in the United States raise brick houses. In Brisbane though this doesn’t occur, there is a far more efficient method of dealing with this scenario.
In this circumstance you lift your roof up and create an additional storey on top of the house. This process has a number of names which include, but are not limited to the following:
Second storey build
Second storey extension
Second storey addition
Build on top
Essentially they all mean the same thing. You lift your roof, insert a new structure and then re-lay the new roof. The whole time the lower level is left intact and protected from the elements and building debris. A series of tarps, careful planning and an efficient and experienced labour force ensures that the new roof is installed and back on within days. Then with the protection of the new roof the fit-out commences, creating your new second level living space.
The mind starts to muddle as to how a whole house can be plonked on top of an existing house. The response to this, is that it requires careful planning and engineering. This is something that T&B Builders Brisbane are very good at assisting you with.

The new level with Brisbane City views?
The new level can have a host of options. Some clients want to extend to create as much new room as possible. Others just want to create a parents retreat with, bedroom, bathroom and walk in robe. Being able to have that little extra space and privacy might be all that you need for your sanity with a growing and ever demanding family. Not to mention, with the peace and quiet of your newly completed renovation comes the new scenic views. Perhaps the Brisbane City lights will now be visible from your bedroom window.
