Port Melbourne Project


House Extension Builders In Port Melbourne

If you’ve been living in Port Melbourne for many years, you’re probably not going to be keen to leave the area because of the convenience it provides. Previously an industrial port, Port Melbourne has transformed into an urban residential suburb making the Melbourne CBD accessible by road via the West Gate Bridge and Citylink highways. Being one of the fastest growing business and residential areas, the suburb also has a 5km tram line that goes directly to Melbourne from Port Melbourne to make it possible for the residents to commute. What was once a cheap and poor area, Port Melbourne is now home to affluent families in Beacons Cove, Garden City and Fishermans Bend which are 3 of the most distinct localities. So if you already own a home in Port Melbourne and are looking to increase the value of your home and get more space, a home extension could resolve your current space issues.

We can create a ground floor house extension in Port Melbourne or even a second floor extension. Both have their appeal and advantages, which we can discuss with you based on your requirements.

Our Process, From Design To Construction


We listen to all your preferences for how you want to live in your house. Whether you like to do a lot of outdoor entertaining, need larger sleeping spaces, or you like to cook up a storm in the kitchen, all of these factors will help determine how we will change your current home to accommodate your ideal lifestyle. Our designers will come up with a design for the kind of extension that you need based on your lifestyle and other requirements.

Working Drawings

Our registered practitioners will create your plans based on the ideas agreed upon in the design phase. These drawings will be used by the builder and architects to create your extension. Our design and drawing creation service is complimentary to you, included in the price of your build which saves you valuable time in trying to find independent professionals to do these tasks for you.

Permits and Engineering

We adhere to all building regulations from your council so you can be rest assured that there is nothing to worry about when it comes to the stage of permits and engineering. We’ll provide all the documents, paperwork plus we pay any fees associated with meeting council requirements. This service is covered in your fixed price.


We only use HIC6 Master Builder Home Improvement contracts to ensure that your project will have a single fixed price and a clear start and finish date while also being protected by all the relevant insurance you need. At the end of the project, you will also be presented with a warranty insurance certificate.


We have a two-stage contact approach. Stage 1 is the Preliminary Works Agreement, which gives you the option to opt out of the plans if unexpected costs are revealed based on the tests and reports done in the preliminary works. Stage 2 is the final contract, which you sign if you’re happy to continue with the rest of the works.


This is the exciting bit, when your home begins its makeover and you actually see the changes taking place. We use best practices when working on your house extension, with qualified and experienced professionals on the job. All our tradespeople have completed an OHS course to ensure the safety of everyone on the building site. Independent surveyors also issue reports at various stages. You will have a project manager assigned to the build so you always have someone around who can answer your questions.

Home Extension In Port Melbourne Project Case Study

The design for our Port Melbourne project evolved throughout the 3D concept discussions. A contemporary design did not fit our client’s taste but a conventional addition, matching the existing dwelling was the finished product. The client’s brief centred around light and space. With no northerly exposure, the challenge to utilise the eastern and southern aspects, with a focus to design around the west facing position, saw this home have a complete re-design. This post war double storey dwelling was internally gutted to provide a design to suit our client’s current and future lifestyle needs. Having a Heritage listed structure, on a small block with less than ideal orientation presented our designer with a few challenges. Being mindful of these restrictions, including all the design elements requested, saw this solid brick dwelling transform into a warm and welcoming double storey home. The need to create a family home saw the focal point of the ground floor extension and renovation produce a light filled kitchen, expansive family/meals space, laundry and by reconfiguring the layout of the existing dwelling provided the grand foyer to the front entrance that the client’s desired. The new timber staircase to this zone completed their ground floor essentials. The addition of a second storey provided much needed space! The provision of 3 bedrooms, WIR’s, study, retreat and large bathroom transformed this house into the gorgeous home it now is! This was a large second storey extension and renovation that saw the clients get everything they wanted and more, all within a budget that they were happy to spend because they could see the added value. Our clients have, over many years, been one of our biggest advertisers. When you do good work, it speaks for itself.
