Home Extensions and Renovations

Extending and renovating your home is an exciting and rewarding process. 

As a boutique building company, Spacemaker Home Extensions is highly regarded within the industry for its strength in constructing quality home extensions and renovations. We engage the finest tradesmen who are specialists in their respective fields, and pleasant to have around your home.


There are many benefits in undertaking home extensions and renovations. Emotionally, these include remaining close to family, friends and schools in a place where many happy family memories have occurred. 

More often than not, it is also more cost effective to undertake a home improvement.  When using a reputable extension and renovation builder, even the most unappealing, poorly laid-out house can be converted into an amazing home without the substantial relocation costs or inconvenience of displacing the family.

Need more space in your home? A home improvement with Spacemaker, one of the most highly regarded and awarded Melbourne home renovation and extension builders, could be the ideal solution for you.

Perhaps you have a growing family with children who require more space, or your existing house no longer meets your lifestyle needs. You may want more natural light and ventilation. Maybe you have young adult children who need more privacy.  You may simply want to improve the overall flow and functionality of your home, making it more livable.

With the help of a reputable extension and renovation builder, you'll be able to make the most of your current home and enjoy a multitude of other benefits.

Below are some of the key reasons to choose a home renovation or extension:

Add value

Renovations and home extensions are a fantastic way to inject value into one of your greatest assets – your family home. It's money well spent.

Whether you're adding a ground floor home extension, second storey home extension or fully renovating your home, well designed and constructed home renovations and extensions by Spacemaker will substantially increase the value of your home.

Greater enjoyment

Anyone who's lived in a house that needs work or has an impractical layout will appreciate the transformation a home improvement can bring. A home that's been given a fresh lease on life can bring enormous lifestyle benefits. Whether it’s a retreat for mum and dad, room for the children to play or open plan living to entertain in style with family and friends, our clients are always thrilled with the greater enjoyment our experienced team brings to their home.

Less fuss

With home extensions and renovations, there's no need to move or spend time searching for another property. This often means less cost, less effort and less stress, particularly if you love your neighbourhood and the connections you have in the area. While you can expect some changes to your lifestyle while building works are underway, this phase is shortlived, and with Spacemaker Home Extensions as your quality home improvement builder, disruption will be kept to a minimum.  Our team is courteous and respectful of you and your property, cleaning up as they go, and keeping you well informed along the way.

Save on upfront costs

Giving your existing home a facelift is often a more cost effective solution than a new build or buying a bigger house. You'll save on real estate fees, legal bills, moving costs, stamp duty and a host of other relocation expenses.  When weighing up a home improvement versus relocating to a new home, often the real cost of relocation is overlooked.  These costs are sometimes greater than 8% of the value of the home.  It’s often wiser to channel the money you save into the expertise provided by your renovation and extension builder with a home improvement.

The personal touch

House extensions and renovations give you the freedom to unleash your personality into your home. It can be deeply exhilarating, exciting and addictive to make decisions on everything from the number of bedrooms and type of storage space to the design style of your home. So much so that many people can't seem to shake off the renovation bug once they start!

You're in control

Quality home extension builders are not always easy to come by.  Many come and go quickly while others are not reliable.  Spacemaker ticks all the boxes which is why we have been in business for over 50 years.  We work closely with you to ensure your home improvement project stays on track, on time and on budget. We’ll arrange the relevant council approvals and tailor the project to match your preferences. That way, you can enjoy the process and always feel in control.

Retain the original character

Often our clients love the original features of their home but are frustrated with its impractical layout and dated fittings.

One of the benefits of renovations with a quality extension and renovation builder is being able to preserve the original character of a home while incorporating fresh solutions.

Our design and construct building team are experts at retaining the original unique character or historic features of our clients’ homes, and working these features into the new design. This offers the comfort and convenience inherent in a modern build, but with the charm and appeal of the past.

Alternatively, sometimes our Melbourne home extension requests are to introduce a more contemporary feel. Whatever your taste, our team is well versed at meeting your design requirements while at the same time being respectful to the original features of the home.

What else do you need to know?

It is wise to collect as much information as possible and think about your brief prior to contacting your extension and renovation builder. Think about your requirements and what type of work you'd like us to provide (single storey extensions, double storey extensions, an additional wing, revamping a tired space etc). Be clear of your budget and priorities so our designer can be sure to create a design you love that meets the budget.

Melbourne home renovation projects can potentially be daunting, complex and unnecessarily expensive when engaging the wrong professional to undertake your work. It's essential to enlist the help of a reputable design and construct renovation and extension builder. Did you know that engaging an architect for your project can cost from 5% to 20% of the cost of the project?

Spacemaker will save you unnecessary architectural fees and manage the entire project from initial design concept stage through to construction completion.  One of our talented designers will listen to your vision and come up with value-adding ideas that you may not have considered.
