A second level extension can be a great move for your property. You can add value and amenities to your home, create extra living space and even extend your floor plan.

Next Level Construct can help you with all your second storey extensions. With our team, you’ll get all the features you want, ensuring that your home grows faster than your family and taking your home to the next level!

Essential Considerations for Second Level Extensions

Most people are wary of the cost of adding a second storey to their house in New Zealand. It’s common sense to be cost-conscious with any major upgrade, especially exterior renovations. To get the best value out of your second storey, talk to our experts about your renovation plans.

Like most home renovations, budgeting needs to start at the planning stage. We can give you a good idea of costs before you even start, and more importantly before you make any financial commitments.

Next Level Construct’s Second Storey Renovations

When we construct your home’s next level, we make sure you have instant access to all the information you need from day one.

This is how it works:

1. Our highly experienced licensed builders work directly with you and your designer or architect. At the planning stage, you can explore your design choices, costs, and have fun planning your dream home. We’ll contribute practical help and guidance to ensure you can make an informed decision about costs and cost options.
2. We give you an all-inclusive quote, based on a rigorous check for the whole project. We don’t guess about costs and you won’t have to either.
3. You can access your extension information directly with us. You’re always fully informed, and always up to date with progress.
From start to finish, you’re able to see your costs upfront. You’ll never need to worry about cost overruns or other annoying added issues. Our 999 point checklist ensures you receive high-quality work at all times.

scaffolding

 

 

Construction is set to begin! The scaffolding is the first thing to go up, as this is a double story house no work can be done on the upper level without it.  We have also decided to install a plastic wrap so work can continue throughout the winter as we are adding another level and replacing the existing tiled roof with a corrugated iron roof.

Whist the scaffolding is going up our builders get to work removing the internal walls to make way for the new open plan layout that we will be having.  The frames all need to be checked for moisture and damage by the council as the house is a plaster house originally built in the 1990's.  
We were very fortunate with only having to change 1 beam of timber in the whole house due to water damage.

The weather has just turned but we were lucky enough to get the plastic wrap on to prevent delays as we had a tight timeframe this renovation had to get done before baby number 3 came along! While the wrap is on the exterior cladding will be replaced, the roof, and the new level that we are adding will be built.  The windows and doors will all be installed so once the wrap is down the house will be water tight and the work inside will continue nicely.

 The wrap has been removed to reveal our new house! One of the most exciting times of a renovation is when the wrap comes down and you can see what your new home is going to look like.  All the new joinery has gone in, the new roof is on and the painters have been hard at work getting as much painted while the wrap was on so when it comes off you really get an understanding and feel of your new home.  However on the inside there is still plenty of work to be done before it's time to move back in.

The interior is well underway with all the plastering done and the painters are now busy.  The painters need to get most of their painting down so the bathrooms can be installed followed by the tiling and the installation of our hard wood floors.

Now it's time for the specialists from Freedom Flooring to come and install the flooring, we are using Rustic American Oak that is being filled with black proprietary filler which will then be white washed ever so slightly to prevent any yellowing with age. Once the floors are done then it's time for the kitchen to go in, carpets are laid and wardrobes all installed.  Before we knew it the cleaners were there and the awesome guys from Tiger Transport were moving us back in!
