Total Building and Construction are dedicated, building extensions professionals. We understand and implement important design and building elements to provide our clients with home extensions that not only suit the needs of their family but which are also in line with our clients’ desired design and layout.
Building extensions can present an exciting opportunity to create a new space in your home. Many times our homes can become outdated or outgrown, causing homeowners to feel pressured into selling and buying something bigger. Building extensions are often the easier, more affordable route for those looking to update the look and feel of their home or to add additional functionality, such as a home office or workspace.
We can help turn your ideas into reality! Our building extensions services include but are not limited to:
Factors to Consider When Carrying out Building Extensions
If you want to carry out building extensions to your home or on your property, there are several important elements to consider before you begin. This will ensure that your home still provides the space and functionality that you and your family need after your building extensions have been carried out. We know how daunting the building extensions process can be, and we want to help make it easier for you!
When extending your home, the land you plan to build on can have a major impact on the finalised design. The size of the land, existing slopes, the land’s general location and its orientation all impact on the design of the additions to your home. It will also dictate how you can maximise the available space and natural light. Land types, shape and accessibility can also impact on the cost to build the extensions you want, which makes them important elements to consider when creating your building extensions budget as well as when laying out your floor plan.
The space of the design of your extensions can play a big part in the flow and functionality of your home, as well as have an impact on your floor plan. Important elements of space to consider are:
- Storage and shelving
- Flexible areas
- Potential furniture placement
While open-plan designs are popular and provide an easy way to maximise the space of your home, poor open-plan designs can lead to excessive noise carrying throughout your house. It’s important to try and balance an open plan home design with privacy and noise reduction.
In home design, zoning helps determine where you should place your bedrooms in relation to communal areas like your kitchen or living room. The way you zone your home design will affect how much privacy you have and how well noise carries throughout your house. In major building extensions projects, where there are a lot of structural changes, zoning is a very important factor to consider.
The Australian Government estimates that 40% of household energy is used for heating or cooling. That’s a lot of energy! We believe that smart house builds can alleviate the pressure placed on artificial cooling.
By considering the land type and available space, your building extensions can incorporate useful design elements that can help provide natural means of cooling, such as:
- Large frescoes or outdoor living areas
- Large windows for better ventilation
- Integration between indoor and outdoor living areas
- Open spaces that encourage breezes.
Lifestyle is often a building extensions factor that gets overlooked. At Total Building and Construction, we like to get to know our clients and learn about the type of lifestyle they lead as this can affect the planned layout of your home. The completed build must suit your family’s needs aesthetically and practically.
As experts in building extensions, we evaluate the floor plans of your home to make the most of the available space you have. We also ensure that the building and construction materials we use are of good quality and fit the dream home you have in mind.
Building extensions require a perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics, which is why we use high-quality materials while building the extensions to your home.

Building Extensions FAQs
The total cost of building extensions depends entirely on the scope of the work and the materials used. Total Building and Construction can assist with estimates and quotes, but ultimately, we recommend that our clients create a budget from which to work. This will allow us to see how much of your building extensions are possible, and if we can assist you.
Generally speaking, building extensions can take several months to complete. However, the amount of time taken also depends on the scope of the work, the availability of your chosen materials, and your budget.
Planning is the most crucial step when conducting building extensions. With so many important factors to consider, such as the type of land your home is situated on or whether your extensions are on the same level or will be an additional floor, proper planning will help ensure the success of your home extensions project.
Building extensions can be extremely disruptive to your family’s daily life. Extensions also entail a work-in-progress construction site, which can potentially be unsafe for small children or pets. Though the scale of building extensions differ, it may be advisable that you and your family live elsewhere during the construction project.
The total cost of your building extensions project depends on the scale of the project, the materials used, the length of time it is predicted to take to complete the project, the tradesmen used and several other factors. While buying a house may seem easier, extending your existing home can be cheaper, and it provides long-term benefits, such as increasing the value of your home.
