Building a second storey on an existing home or building a completely new one with two storeys is always a dream for many homeowners. For whatever reason, they either want more space in their backyard and therefore prefer to go up, or they have fantastic views they would love to capture by going up another level in their home.
Whatever the reason, it better be a good one, as the cost to build a second storey is always more per square meter when comparing the price of a single levelled home.
Now, we do not like to talk square meter prices here at Distinct; however, in this case, there is no other way of explaining this concept.
There are several reasons why building a two Storey home is more expensive, I hope I can shed some light on these reasons in this post now.
In no particular order, let me explain to you from a builder's point of view, what costs us more money and why we have to charge you as the homeowner for those added costs on your two storey home extension or two storey new build.
