Specialists in Heritage Home Double Storey Extensions

Melbourne’s eastern and bayside suburbs are home to many beautiful old homes which have a rich history and are exceptionally well built, however, often these houses are relatively small compared to the land on which they are built and their outdated floorplans fail to live up to the demands of modern families. Our design experts enlarge and enhance beautiful old houses with contemporary second story extension floor plans, creating homes with functionality to match a modern lifestyle.

The Duncan Thompson Difference

At Duncan Thompson Extensions, we are one of Melbourne’s leading double storey home builders and we pride ourselves on offering the best design for your budget, lifestyle and style of home. We take the hard work out of the process by offering a free, no obligation meeting with our experienced design consultants and we will offer expert advice and suggestions as to what type of second storey extension would work best for you and your family. We bring your double storey extension plans to life with a 3D computer generated perspective of your new extension and you will receive a fixed price contract ensuring no hidden surprises.

Our extensions need to stand the test of time, so it’s very important to us that we produce work we’re proud of.

The Benefits of Going Up

Adding a first-floor is ideal if you have limited space for ground floor extensions, but there are many other benefits too:

  • Save time and money as foundations and substructure are already in place.
  • In many cases, you will be able to stay in the existing ground floor while construction takes place, saving you the hassle of moving out and the expense of renting.
  • Enhance your views with a quality first floor home addition to suit your needs.
  • Increase space and functionality by adding extra bedrooms, storage or living areas.
  • Preserve your outdoor areas while still enjoying the benefits of added living space.
