Should I Raise My House? Reasons to Raise the Roof!
Updated: Oct 16
There are multiple reasons why raising a house makes sense and brings benefit to your home.
Does your house require restumping? Would you like more space? Have you considered making a bigger adjustment to your home by raising your house right off the ground?
If your home already requires restumping, it can be convenient to raise and lift a house at the same time. Not only will this give you the benefit of having more space to work with the restumping job, but afterwards you can also use the extra space under your home for a multitude of things!
Raising your home whilst restumping can be an affordable way to create additional space in your home. The space you gain under your existing house can be utilised as a parent or teenage retreat, a granny flat, or just extra storage space.
Another reason you might consider raising or lifting your home when you’re undertaking restumping is if you desire a better view. Toowoomba is renowned for its hilly terrain and pleasing views. Raising your house can give you a view that will not only add to the aesthetics of your home but will also increase the value of your home substantially.
Lastly, one of the most cost-effective ways to enjoy a home that has been lifted is to use the lower area as an open entertaining space. Simply create an area where you can entertain with a BBQ, chairs and a table. If you like to stay in shape you might also like to consider a gym space with lifting equipment and an area for yoga. Or perhaps you want to install a spa. Create your own private paradise below your home and invite your friends over to relax on your newly created entertainment hub.
