Ground floor extensions to complement your existing home

A ground floor extension by Jakanda is an important home improvement project that you can consider when looking at extending an existing living space outwards to a vacant area of your property. It can allow you to design and build a creative space that can be opened up to the beautiful outdoors and can be used as a comfortable living space. It can become a potential home improvement project if you have limited bedrooms in the house as you can build an additional bedroom and added bathrooms for your growing children.

A good remodel project for home:

You can consult with the professionals at Jakanda in order to transform your living space to a larger modern one. If your home seems a little cramped or you want to give it a luxurious touch then adding more space to the existing property is a good idea.

The preferable solution for older individuals:

If you have older parents with mobility issues, as a caring family member you can invest in a ground floor extension to facilitate them for staying in a comfortable environment. It will provide them with a separate space to live and also retain their independence. Jakanda can design and build a bedroom and living space that suits their essential requirements to provide them with a convenient, peaceful, and comfortable space. Adding more space to your home will undoubtedly facilitate them as they do not have to struggle with going upstairs and they can move easily in and out of the desired rooms.

You can design and build a spacious kitchen:

A kitchen is the heart of every home but most older kitchens have a smaller space without much storage. Jakanda will build you a larger modern kitchen to improve the market value of your home and of course to add more appeal to your home interior. How about that wine cellar you have always dreamt of?

Extend upwards:

A first floor addition will create more space in your home where you can easily cater your living needs for a growing family without having to purchase a new home and move all your much loved furniture around.

The Main reason to renovate your current home

Deciding whether to renovate your current home or to purchase or build another house is an extremely important and complex decision that will impact your financial position long term. Then there's the task of finding a builder that can help you navigate the project from initiation to completion. Here are two reasons why a renovation with exceptional builders in Penrith Jakanda could be a viable option.


Firstly, it's understandable for a move to be expensive, but the costs of moving can stack up and place extra pressure on your family's income for the medium to long term.

Here are some examples:
Additional storage costs
Solicitor costs
Inspection costs
Real estate agent costs
Mortgage payments and changes to your mortgage
Government taxes

Accommodation costs.

After all the stress of moving you will need a holiday, unfortunately you probably won't be able to afford one for at least five years. So working with the best builders in Penrith can help you design and change your house instead of moving. If you have an idea for your project, share it with Jakanda and they will be happy to provide you with a quote.
