Home Living : August 26th 2008
6 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 26, 2008 Making room's the right move Write to Ask The Experts about individual problems in the home. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your question or fax Ask The Experts 9689 5399. HOMELIVING » ADVERTISING FEATURE ASK THE EXPERTS Peter Johns is facing a dilemma. Should his family move home or should they improve the home they are in? Classic Home Improvements owner Ian Cubitt says many Sydneysiders are faced with this question. ''This is usually the result of a family outgrowing their home and needing more space,'' he said. Yes, our children are growing up and, with five of us living in the house, the walls seem to be closing in. What would you suggest? Children need more space as they get older. To give the family more room we would suggest that instead of moving -- and paying from $35,000 to $65,000 (in moving costs and taxes) -- that a better option would be to extend. But what would it cost to add a room? It's not hard for our consultants to give a detailed quote. All they need to do is to come out to your home and understand your requirements. They will look at the council regulations, your house and land, and create a detailed quote for free. There are many considerations, including if the land is sloped or flat, however the cost of adding a granny flat or garden studio can be very appealing indeed. We handle all the local council approvals and organise all the trades and manage the job. We are not very good in the ideas department. Can you help? If you've been thinking of expanding your living space, and don't know where to start, we can offer a free in- home consultation by a designer who will take you through the three Cs: concept, council approval and construction. We specialise in ground-floor extensions, first-floor additions, glass room extensions, granny flats, garden studios and outdoor covered areas such as awnings, pergolas and carports.
