This Is Why People Love Custom First Floor Additions

First floor additions, also known as second storey extensions are increasingly popular for those homeowners who donโ€™t want to lose valuable garden space but want to increase their family living space. Best of all, going up is easy and our team will do their best to ensure the process is smooth and the build is completed on time and with minimal disruption to your daily lives.

You can have a modern, liveable home with plenty of space for your family โ€“ without giving up the location you love.

Our team are the experts in planning and building custom/tailor-designed First Floor Additions

We are often approached by clients who would like to create an open plan living environment downstairs, whilst adding more room for the family to live comfortably upstairs. The best way to achieve this is with a Custom First Floor Addition.

As specialists in these types of builds, we have many years of experience enabling us to easily offer solutions and suggestions on products, layout and how to get the most from your investment. We are able to share with you relevant quality projects that have resulted in many of our clients becoming raving fans.

No Plans? No Worries!

If a client comes to us without plans, part of our service is to organise for a building designer to assist with the plans and design process. This is will be included in our Preliminary Agreement if required.

We can arrange for our draftspeople to consult with our clients at their home and discuss their project requirements. From there we will then provide plans based upon their specifications and work hand in hand with our clients and the draftsperson to ensure the plans continue to work within the tailored build cost estimate that we have provided.

Improve your lifestyle and bring your family together

When building their addition our clients often decide to open up downstairs living spaces, renovate their kitchen and bathrooms and create new living spaces internally and externally. Once the addition and renovation are completed they are left with a finished product that is like moving into a brand new home.

We are able to create open plan living spaces and improve their current living situation. Our mission is to bring families closer together.

Take away the stress, let us help you plan, manage and design your build

We have a streamlined process which is stress-free and fun. When you are building with 32 Degrees Building you don’t have to worry about anything other than choosing what you want to add to your home and we will work with you on the design to suit your home and your lifestyle.

Nailstrip Cladding

Corey and the team installing the nailstrip cladding at our Belimbla Park Extension #32DegreesBuilding #ExtensionSpecialists #colorbond #lysaght #nailstripcladding #groundfloorextension #hometransformation

Posted by 32 Degrees Building on Sunday, 29 September 2019

Some of our team were over at Belimbla Park recently installing the nailstrip metal wall cladding on stage 1 of the parapet of the ground floor extension.

Here are several benefits of using this material for your wall cladding: 
– It’s quick and simple to install, with no clips or special seam tools required
– It achieves an architectural facade with no visible fixings and has a modern clean style compared to traditional cladding
– You can get custom widths for your individual design style
AND our favourite;
– It requires minimal maintenance compared to other cladding materials, such as rendered brick and timber!

This look is definitely the new trend that we are seeing coming in across our builds, with our client in Rozelle also opting for this cladding! Want to know how to incorporate it into in your build either as a feature or across your home? – just ask us!

Connecting Families

Second storey additions, parents retreats, ground floor extensions, large scale renovations, granny flats, knockdown rebuilds – this is what we do and we LOVE it!

Did you know that a part of our job is also specialising in connecting families by creating additional, practical well thought out living spaces for families that are growing, those that are looking to move back in and those that require looking after.

Often we are contacted about creating more space for growing families, a great option to consider in this case is a parents retreat, teenagers retreat and retirees retreat through the addition of a second storey.

Parents Retreat: A parents retreat is the addition of a master bedroom, ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. The aim is to create a luxurious space where relaxation and privacy are the priority.

Teenagers Retreat: A teenagers retreat creates a space with additional bedrooms, a bathroom and living space creating a sanctuary away from the parents.

Retirees Retreat: A retirees retreat creates a space tailored to the more mature audience, they often include the addition of a bedroom, ensuite, wardrobe and a living area with a wet bar. They can be fitted out with features that can assist with ease of accessibility including wider entryways, stairlifts, a lift, even floors throughout and even a wet bar to maintain their independence.

If you are planning a build, talk to our team. We want to be a part of your building journey and make it a stressfree and enjoyable build, so much so that at the end of it, you will say to us that you would do it all again!

That’s Grate

When it comes to extending and renovating their home, many of our clients will have at least one additional bathroom added or updated as part of their project.

When you are planning on the type of fixtures and fittings that you would like to include in your bathroom, do you pause to give any thought to the drainage? Often we find that this can be overlooked, so we wanted to share with you Stormtech’s linear drainage system. They have a designer range and have recently added 3 new colours to the range so you can match them in with your bathroom style choices – there is now bronze, copper and brass alongside the traditional steel and black look available.

It’s a grate addition to their collection! – pun intended! ๐Ÿ˜‚
