Lifting a House and Building Underneath

Do you love where you live, but need more space?

Lift House and Build Under

Whether you’re wanting to introduce more space to your home, or you’re simply after a complete facelift, raising a house and building underneath could be the way to go. This method of construction is typically used on homes such as classic Queenslanders due to their timber-subfloors, which are commonly seen around the beautiful city of Brisbane. When it comes to house lifting, ensure that care is taken in choosing a reputable and quality builder. If done incorrectly, house lifting can cause significant structural damage to your property.

It’s important to look for a company that specialises in lift house and build under services as it’s key to preventing costly mistakes and protecting the foundation of your home. If you love the area you live in, but you’re craving something new, home lifting is a great way to bring new life to your existing house and will give you the feeling of being in a brand-new space.

Things to Consider

Before you can start the planning process of home lifting, there are multiple things you need to consider. Without answering these questions, you’re bound to run into multiple issues which will hinder the entire project. Consult a reliable builder or building company that specialises in lift house and build under projects so that you can receive the proper information about the process. Some things to consider include:

  • How will you connect the new floors?
  • Would you prefer internal or external stairs?
  • Is there enough space on your property for the home to be raised? This must meet council requirements
  • Will your floor plan need to be reconfigured?
  • Would you like to reposition your home e.g., pushed further back from the street?
  • Will your home need restumping in the process?

The House Lifting Process

The process of a lift house and build under project consists of many steps and needs to be done with the utmost care. It starts with crucial planning, then engineering, and approvals, which are the pre-planning steps that Renovare Chermside will undertake before commencing any additional works. From there, the magic happens. Builders will work to separate the existing home from its foundation, raise it onto steel support, and then prop the home up to its approved height.

This step will require the home to be supported by temporary bracing while new footings and stumps are being completed (if it is decided that the home needs re-stumping). After this, if you choose to extend and close in under house, this step will be completed with either a concrete foundation or another subfloor that will utilise the same stumps.
