Home Renovation Project Ideas To Help Solve Your Family Sized Problem

It isn’t uncommon for a family to require a larger sized house as the size of their family increases. What used to suffice in the way of space with just the two of you is no longer enough. There comes a time when a little more space is needed to give yourself some breathing room says Matt, the owner of Custom Outdoor Living who declares they are the best pergola builders in Melbourne.

A little bit more about the company. Custom Outdoor Living specialise in small home extensions in Melbourne, VIC and we’ve grabbed an excerpt from their home extensions page below.

7 Australian Homes with Spectacular Backyard Extensions

On many days, it feels like every family in suburban Australia is renovating their house, or more specifically, commissioning a stellar backyard addition that transforms the existing dwelling in beautiful, surprising ways. According to Melbourne-based architect Andrew Maynard, a veteran of these sorts of projects, 60 percent of his studio’s projects are now extensions.

In a 2009 interview with Sanctuary Magazine, an Australian sustainable home-design publication, Maynard said Aussies are “addicted to renovations and extensions.” And judging by the frequency at which these backyard additions are popping up Down Under, it seems that particular addiction has not subsided.

Expanding your property can transform your home into something you fall back in love with.
