Around the world, house raising is used for a variety of different purposes. In areas that are susceptible to flooding, for instance, a homeowner may pay to elevate their house above the floodplain. Raising a house is also an effective way to remove the bulk of the house temporarily while builders go to work replacing a cracked, sinking or otherwise damaged foundation. In some cases, house lifting is even the first step of moving an old or historic home to a new location. At Home Extensions Builder, we offer house raising in North Brisbane mainly as a means of helping homeowners extend the usable space of their home.

Choosing the Right Type of Extension for Your Home

It’s worth noting here that there are many ways to build extensions onto an existing home. Adding an extra storey; knocking down walls and building further out into the yard; enclosing the existing home with new rooms or sections. These options and others are all strategies we have employed at Home Extensions Builder to help homeowners do more with their existing property.

Our basic philosophy is that moving to a new home is an expensive, time-consuming, and all around stressful process. Finding your dream home in your dream location is no small task, even with a large budget on hand. Renovating and extending your current house is a smart alternative option in many situations. If you already love the location and design of your home but just need some extra space, working with a company such as Home Extensions Builder is your best bet. We can retain the charm and appeal of your existing home while adding to it. This point extends to our services for house lifting in Brisbane.

When is raising your home the best option for your renovation? If you want to add a basement or storage room to your property, elevating your home may be the only option. The same goes for adding a garage to your home. These features can add considerable value and usable space to your property, making house raising in Brisbane well worth the investment.

At Home Extensions Builder, we are happy to consult on what type of renovation or home extension is right for you. If you’re looking to add an extra bedroom or expand your kitchen and dining room space, you probably won’t have any need to lift your home. However, if your foundation has been compromised, then lifting the house may be a necessary step on the road to your renovation—even if you don’t intend to add space below ground. Any basement or below ground extensions, meanwhile, will typically demand at least slight house lifting. In any case, our team can advise you on the best next steps for your project, based on the design of your home and your overall vision.


Actions speak louder than words... which is why we're happy to provide you with atleast three references from recent completed jobs in your area that you can inspect, contact and assess prior to proceeding with the construction of a Home Extensions Builder extension otherwise have a look at our testimonials below.


We wish to commend Home Extensions Builder for the excellent work they completed in our major renovation: excavation and building under the house, plus deck extension.

Bruce was always courteous, helpful, and professional, and his builders were always punctual and cheerful. We really appreciated only having to move out for a few days while the plumbing work was relocated. Best of all, the work was carried out to a very high standard and the project was completed with a couple of months.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Home Extensions Builder to anyone.
We are very satisfied customers!

Greg & I would like to say how happy we are with the work that has been done, the guys were great doing the work and it was easy to discuss things with Bruce as we made a couple of changes through the project.

Please don’t hesitate to pass our name and contact details onto any future potential customers, we would be pleased to be able to provide a reference for Home Extensions Builder.


It remains for me to thank you (both), and your team, for your help in completing this project.

A job well done and we are most grateful.

Kind regards

David de Haas
