House Extensions Melbourne

Custom Outdoor Living has been leading the way for single storey and ground floor home extensions and sunrooms in Melbourne for over 26 years. Our talented workforce strives to provide you with the best building experience around. The quality of build is second to none and we take care to ensure we create as little disturbance as possible, effectively working in the background.

Melbourne’s Leading Single Storey Extension Builders

More and more people are looking for single storey extension design ideas in Melbourne to suit their needs for extra living space, either to accommodate an expanding family or to create an entertainment area for somewhere to relax after a hard day’s work.

We take immense pride in our work and having over two decades worth of experience means we are one of the leading outdoor building companies in Melbourne. We recognise each property is different and using our many years of experience we can supply you the exact design you’re looking for.

What Is The Cost of A One Storey Extension?

The cost of the project, and therefore the budget you should set aside to complete the building work will depend on the size and style of the extension. Because you’re looking to expand at the ground floor level instead of building upwards onto a second floor, it will mean a lower overall cost to you. Setting aside the correct budget is important and we do work closely with our customers to provide the very best design available to suit your needs. One fact to consider is that extending your house will provide both the additional living space you need and help to increase the value of your property if you decide to sell it further down the road. When we build the perfect alfresco area for your home, we’ll use a range of building materials depending on the existing characteristics of your home. This ensures that you’ll achieve an outdoor extension that is seamlessly integrated into your home’s design.

Your Next Step

Simply fill in our enquiry form, once we’ve received your details, one of our highly trained team of staff will contact you to arrange a convenient time for a home visit where a senior member of our design team will be more than happy to talk with you. This will allow us to fully appreciate the layout of your property and provide us an opportunity to discuss your exact requirements in detail. During the home visit we will be able to discuss aspects of the project you may not have considered such as required excavation, garden layout space allowance, retention walls, access to your property, and so on. We can also help you navigate the sometimes complex building permits. You can trust our team of experts to provide a cutting-edge design which will complement the existing structure of your property while also providing an aesthetically pleasing design we know you’ll love.
