When we first buy or build our first home, we pretty much figure that this will be the home that we will bring up a family in and we will probably retire there as well. However, sometimes life throws us a curveball and our family gets much bigger than we first planned for. This means that you have teenagers in your home who are demanding their own private space and you as a parent are expected to get it for them. You could move to a larger home but this wound prove to be incredibly expensive in the current property market and you will be moving out of an area that you love. The other option is to make some changes to the property that you currently have and if you have the space around your property that is going to spare, then it makes a lot of sense to invest in your current property.
If you are a current property owner and you need to create more room with regard to your current property, then a knock down rebuild in Canberra might provide you with the perfect solution. It’s going to be a lot cheaper than having to buy a larger property and it probably won’t work out as expensive as you thought it would. The great thing about it is that you can decide what kind of building work happens which you probably didn’t get to decide when you bought your current property. There are a number of different things that you can do as part of a knock down rebuild and the following are just some of those.
* Convert that attic or basement space – Many homes have either an attic at the top of the house or a basement at the bottom of it and this is space that is generally going to waste. We generally just use these areas for storage when they could be so much more. Your attic could be converted into one or two extra bedrooms and with the installation of a sky light, the kids are going to be fighting over who gets this room. The same applies to the basement and it is the perfect place to create something like a study or a laundry.
* Create a granny flat – The garage where you’re supposed to park your car every night is not being properly utilised and you always park your car in the driveway anyway. For now, it is been used as a laundry and storage facility when it could be so much more. This space can be changed to be an extra room or flat that will be perfect for the kids or is accommodation for family guests when they stay over for a few days. It is so much potential and it won’t cost a lot to create it.
These are just two examples of how to create extra room in your home and there are many more. The space is there and so you need to talk to your local building contractor to find out exactly what can be done and how much it is going to cost you.
