Double Storey Home Builder Perth

One of the most common requests we get at Portrait Custom Homes is for the double storey. The double storey home has many advantages, including:

  • Cheaper – The double storey makes better use of space and land.
  • More Energy Efficient – Heat rises naturally, so the double story is easier to insulate in comparison to expanding horizontally.
  • Convenient – Double storey homes provide a neat separation of bedrooms upstairs and living areas downstairs.
  • View – By being taller, the upstairs rooms can benefit from better views, possibly above trees and hedges.

Most homes now will have an upstairs for the bedrooms and for the extra space. A one storey bungalow can often fail to provide residents with the space that they require.

Call Portrait Custom Homes, the best double story home builder Perth, on (08) 9317 8941 today for a chat.

We also specialize in multi-storey, single-storey, renovations, additions, and project management.

Is It Cheaper To Build A Single Or Two Storey House?

Per square foot, a one-storey house is more costly to build than a two-storey home. There is a larger footprint, meaning more foundation building and more roofing materials. And because the plumbing and heating/AC systems need to extend the length of the house, you’ll need bigger (and costlier) systems.

Is It Cheaper To Build Up Or Out?

Building up is always the least expensive option for increasing your home’s square footage because it requires less material and labour. On the other hand, if you build outwards, you’ll have to add footers, concrete, fill rock, roof system, and an increased excavation cost.

Should I Build An Addition Or Move Out?

It’s certainly more affordable as compared to moving. Think about all the expenses and fees involved in selling and buying a home. You won’t see those when you build a new addition, and it’s highly likely that your project is going to cost much less than purchasing a new home.

Can You Build A Second Floor On A Slab Foundation?

If you’re sitting on continuous concrete footings (poured against the dirt) or have a beam and pier system (relying on footings poured against soil), then chances are good you can add a floor without overstressing the soil or foundation system.

To build a double storey house or for some remodelling or additions, call us on (08) 9317 8941.

Customer Reviews

After months of research we appointed Portrait Custom Homes to build our new family home in Applecross. From the start Rob had a very competitive, open book approach to pricing and an exemplary work ethic in keeping the job on track. Rob’s sound technical knowledge and open communication have made dealing with Portrait Custom Homes a pleasure. We moved into our new home on time and we are extremely proud of the quality and workmanship.

Stuart, Applecross

We engaged Portrait Custom Homes to build our new home in Applecross. Owner, Rob Hyde has been extremely thorough in all aspects of the build, patient with our many changes, nothing has been too much trouble and he has personally supervised the works. We will be moving in soon, and ahead of schedule! We can highly recommend Rob Hyde and his team.

Vanessa, Applecross

We met with and got quotes from a few builders recommended to us by our architect. At our first meeting with Rob Hyde, we immediately felt comfortable working with him – he was thorough, knowledgeable and transparent. We can only say that he has a great team of people, trades and suppliers that he works with. The quality of finish is outstanding and our building experience could not have been better.
