Brisbane homes are well known for their classic “Queenslander” appearance, however, when these homes were first built, they weren’t designed with today’s residents in mind. Often, your needs from a home can start to become larger than what the home can provide. Initially, you may think to move and buy a new home that is more suited, however, there are alternatives to this, which include you keeping your gorgeous heritage home!
At Radius Builders, we have years of experience with Brisbane homes, especially Queenslanders and character listed homes. We understand the care and thought that needs to be taken when conducting a project on one of these homes. Whether you are wanting a simple renovation or a house raise and build under, we can help create your dream home.
Raising a house has multiple benefits, including creating more space and flood prevention. If you are concerned that your home is in a flood-prone area, you can consult council websites to confirm. Raising your home can then minimise damage should a flood occur.
Building underneath your newly raised home is a larger project, however, it can create much more space for you and your family. One of our recent projects was a raise and build under for a Queenslander in Coorparoo. This transformed the house into a five-bedroom, three-bathroom family home, creating a much more livable environment for the homeowners.
Extending your home may also be a consideration, however, when you are short of yard space, this isn’t the ideal choice. A house raise means that you can get the home of your dreams without sacrificing any of your yard space.
Radius Builders have helped several Brisbane homeowners create their dream home, from Coorparoo to Clayfield. Raising Houses is just one of the many services that we can provide to your Brisbane home and we look forward to helping you with your next project, big or small!
