Case Study: Two Storey Extension, Mount Hawthorn

New Heights in Mount Hawthorn

New Heights in Mount Hawthorn

Janine and Peter love their Mount Hawthorn neighbourhood, but with their two children quickly growing up, it was time to look at options that created more space in the family home.

Fortunately for them, they didn’t have to worry about the stress of putting their house on the market and look for a larger home to purchase. Rather, they added a second storey to their already beautiful home.

When they first contacted Summit, Janine and Peter were initially thinking about extending the ground floor. However when they sat down and spoke with our renovation expert, Angelo, he suggested adding a second storey to the home as this would ultimately give them that extra space they were looking for.

The second storey extension was built off-site in our purpose built facility and installed in one day.

The installation process was a lot quicker than the traditional second storey building method, meaning they didn’t need to move out and disruption was minimal.

Janine and Peter love their new home, which now includes an additional two bedrooms, a bathroom and an activity room – the perfect children’s retreat.

“The whole process didn’t impact our daily life and routine,” Janine said. “We didn’t have to move out of our home and the onsite installation was only five weeks!

All tradesmen were friendly and polite and left the site clean at the end of each day.”

“Plus we’ve received many comments that the addition matches the style of the house.

With the renovation complete, we couldn’t be happier – our kids have moved into the new addition and there is so much more space!”
