avoid moving house with attic premium room conversion

When you find that you’re running out of space in your home, the first instinct might be to start looking for a bigger house. Trading up on your house is an expensive option, especially in today’s housing market. The other option is do an attic conversion to unlock a potentially huge amount of space in your home. We’ll show you how you can gain up to 30% more space without the hassle and expense of moving to a new house.

Introducing the Premium Room Attic Conversion

A Premium attic room conversion is the ultimate answer to the question of “Should I stay, or should I go?” when it comes to tackling the space problem in your life. If you love your neighbourhood and your home, expanding into your valuable roof cavity is the cost effective, creative solution to household growing pains.

Types of Premium Attic Rooms

The possible uses of your unlocked space are just about limitless. Premium rooms are often used as home offices, kids playrooms, arts and crafts studios, guest room, home theatres and fitness rooms. The walls, ceiling and floor are insulated to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer and Each of our Premium Rooms contains at least one roof window providing fresh light and air, along with gyprocked and painted walls for a stunning attic space.

Gain Up to 30% More Space in Your Home

Converting your attic can unlock between 15 to 40 square metres of additional space in your home. This represents significant additional value, especially where land is expensive and space is tight. Gaining up to 30% more space in your home with an attic conversion is an easy investment decision if you don’t want to move, but have run into space problems where you live now.

Development Approval (Usually) Not Required

The other good news is that in most cases Development Approval from council is not required as long as the project is compliant with the regulations. An attic conversion doesn’t require structural changes to the building, with the changes being contained independently of the existing ceiling joists. 

Conversion Completion Time: 4-6 Weeks

A typical Premium Room Attic Conversion takes only 4 to 6 weeks, which is a much quicker process than the typical experience of buying a new house, selling your existing house and then moving into your new house! Buying and moving into a new house is so inconvenient and time consuming, much of it taken with cooling off periods and waiting for hand-over dates. Avoid all that time-wasting by creating more room in your existing home in 60 to 90 days!

Compare the Cost of Utilising your Roof Space versus Moving to a New House

With a budget of just $45,000 to $60,000, one or more rooms can be created in your untapped roof space, adding more space and value to your home. On the other hand, if you are looking at the cost of moving into a new, bigger house, there are many costs involved such as Stamp Duty, real estate agent’s fees and removalists. If you’ve grown roots in your current neighbourhood, with friends, community networks, kids school chums, not to mention your favourite restaurants and shops, moving away can be painful. Recreating those connections in a new community can be a challenge. These can be the hidden costs of moving that should also be given serious consideration.

The attic solution is a significantly cheaper and quicker option than other forms of extensions.

Minimal Disruption to Your Life

One of the great benefits of converting a roof is the relative lack of disruption and the fact that you can live in the house while the renovation is happening. The builders, generally access the roof from the outside, so the only invasive part is the installation of the stairs or the attic ladder.
