The way we live in our homes today is very different from the way our parents or grandparents lived.

Their living or lounge room was their main entertaining area when family and friends came by. There was no family or rumpus room and definitely no cinema or games room. The kitchen was usually small and situated in the back of the house, away from visitors’ eyes.

Creativity, passion and commitment to the design and build of better quality home extensions is what the Duncan Thompson name is known for. What you desire from an extension is what we seek to give you.

Today’s lifestyle

Today, new homes are generally much bigger with large open spaces that are more suitable for entertaining family and friends.

Mum and dad prefer to have their own bathroom, separate from the children. Bedrooms have also become bigger and children are less likely to share a room. Because children are spending more leisure time indoors large entertaining areas have been created. Rumpus rooms and cinema rooms are ideal for watching movies at home on our large screens. The family is also likely to have 2, 3 or even more cars to accommodate. Our kitchens have also become the focal point of our homes, it’s where we spend a large amount of time.

Whatever your situation, we have the solution

So you live in an older house that doesn’t offer the size and amount of space you need for today’s lifestyle. Rather than move, the decision’s been made to extend your home, but what type of extension will give you what your family needs?

If your land is large enough, a ground floor extension may be suitable or if space outdoors is a problem, an upper storey may be your only option.

At Duncan Thompson Extensions, we offer fully customisable designs that work with your house and your budget. Working together, we can help you realise your extension ideas.

Extension Ideas

Every house extension we design and build is done with a family’s unique needs in mind. No two families are the same, and you know what you want better than anyone else.

Architectural Design

We ensure our design not only delivers on your expectations, but also complements your home, with total consideration for your home’s period, place and culture.

Floorplans

Every floorplan we design is unique and complements the needs and wants of your family. We never use ‘off the shelf’ floorplans or layout designs like some extension builders.

3D Extension Design

We use specialist architectural software to create and develop 3D computer models of our projects, which means that all can be tested, reviewed, and adjusted quickly and easily.
