Improve and expand to accommodate your changing needs
There will come a time when your circumstances alter or your family requirements vary and your existing accommodation will no longer meet all of your needs. That’s the time to improve or expand your home with a ground floor extension, a second storey addition or the conversion of an underutilised area.
Whether you choose to leverage increased equity or add value to your home by investing accumulated capital, your decision will yield so much more than extra space. A Plan Ahead Designs’ home renovation or building extension will beautifully redefine your living space whilst simultaneously optimising the value of your most significant long term investment.
You can be confident that a Plan Ahead Designs’ renovation or extension will creatively overcome your current home’s shortcomings, enhance your lifestyle plus allow you to continue to reside among the familiar local amenities you and your family have grown to rely upon.
If you are happy with where you live, but are becoming dissatisfied with the limitations of your home’s layout or its available space, your most practical course of action is to extend or remodel. You will avoid the insidious tax burden of state stamp duties, maximise your equity plus realise the capital gain on your entire investment.
Whilst the increase in your home’s monitory value forms an influential part of your decision criteria, the ongoing wellbeing of your family has an equally important role to play. Appreciation of the true return on your investment will be made far more apparent when you have a clear understanding of all your options. Plan Ahead Designs will listen you your concerns and review your changing needs before enlightening you with the most applicable ways you could improve your home. Practical and achievable alternatives that may encompass modernising outdated floor plans to liberate underutilised living space; remodelling period interiors to create open plan living or extending by adding new rooms.
You will need to consider many factors when weighing up the pros and cons between extending or relocating into a new place. The commute to work, community life, local resources, the schools available, crime rates, diversity, and a range of other influential issues. Reconciling all the variables with the perfect home you aspire to is not easy, more often families prioritize unalterable, external and environmental factors over any potential new home’s physical characteristics. When you are comfortable with the convenience and location that you have already chosen to live in, the decision is half way to being made for you.
Every house has the potential for further interior space, and there are multiple ways you can redesign and renovate your home. An extension is often the best way to vastly alter and improve its functionality. One of the best things about working with Plan Ahead Designs is that you are involved in the creative process and have full control over the location, size, or functionality of the extra space and amenities you desire.
Plan Ahead Designs’ drafting services provide you with digital sketches, scaled architectural diagrams and high quality building plans to submit to your local municipalities’ planning department. In addition to architectural drawings you may also take advantage of animated 3D computer models that enhance your understanding and appreciation of your plans and digitally rendered photomontages that realistically illustrate how your finished build will appear from the street and other vantage points.
Sydney’s residential real estate market continues to experience substantial gains, as a result the financial price differential between your current home and a larger property continues to widen. Obviously, there are significant out of pocket expenses involved in selling your current property and moving home, property presentation costs, agents commissions, marketing expenses, solicitors fees, removalists charges, insurances and stamp duty all add up.
A well designed and constructed home extension will add significant capital value to an existing residence. Poorly designed house extensions cost the same, but do not add the same optimum value to the home. Plan Ahead Designs will ensure your home extension is carefully planned, maximizing the added value through great design and quality construction to make the most of your existing home.
A large proportion of house extensions and home renovations can be carried out while you remain living in your house, of course the practicality for this revolves around the design and extent of work being undertaken. Best of all is the fact that you don’t have to move, and that you are not dependent on trying to sell your property at the price you need or the stress of finding an affordable new one in the neighbourhood you love with the friends and familiar facilities you have grown to rely upon.
After successfully completing over 1000 architectural building design projects during the last three decades you can confidently rely upon Plan Ahead Designs’ expertise in local authority zoning and development codes, building legislation and low energy standards, heritage protection guidelines and engineering requirements for housing additions, alterations and extensions across all Sydney suburbs.
