There are so many different ways a house addition can make your home bigger.

We can help with the most cost-effective way to extend your home. Let’s find more space, even double your current space using the same footprint! When you know you already have the perfect location, you don’t have to move. Do an addition instead and stay in your Grey Lynn neighbourhood. Avoid the cost and hassle of moving, being constantly “on show” while your house is on the market and losing precious weekends traipsing around trying to find a new home… There’s no need to leave your peaceful street and lovely neighbours. Stay where you and your family are already well settled into nearby schools and friendships – just make it bigger! You’re also adding value at the same time as much more space and functionality, so a home addition is a wise investment.


It can feel easy to outgrow a bungalow, especially with a growing or extended family! The good news is that if you love your existing home, and do not want to move – building a second storey is an effective and smart solution to get the extra rooms you require out of your once humble bungalow. When adding a second floor to a bungalow, you do not have to worry about changing the footprint, or the drainage – as they are already in place! We take care of planning the new structure, roofing, plumbing requirements if adding a bathroom, staircase – the lot! Therefore, building upwards is a convenient place to start dramatically increasing the floor space of your home!


We have over 75 years of combined experience in the industry extending homes for our customers, so we’ve been around the block a few times to know exactly how to make your build cost-effective for your budget. We offer realistic estimated costs so that you know what you’re likely to spend on a house addition, and we work on a ‘no job too small or big’ basis. The best part about a house addition going upwards is that you save costs on a new foundation and main drainage requirements!

We have a saying at Providence Construction – “Work rain, hail, shine or until your undies get wet”. We mean it. We will work tirelessly to build the home you planned, and don’t mind getting a bit of dirt under our fingernails. You can trust that our expertise, can-do attitude and strong support team will see you through all of your upwards renovations until they are ‘just right’. After the renovations are complete, we can recommend trusted interior designers or point you in the right direction for your next steps so that you get the start-to-finish service you deserve.


Here’s we share some ideas that show how a new house addition can radically transform your home. We’re proud to have helped families in and around Grey Lynn and Auckland to go bigger and better, right in their own back yard and be able to continue to stay in their favourite family neighbourhood


Some homes in Glen Innes can have a lot of wasted space below them, especially if your house is sitting on a sloping or hilly section. This extra area below the house can also be captured by a new house addition. There are endless options. You could use the new space for garaging, a granny flat (extra income is always welcome!), extra bedrooms and a bathroom or a home gym.

If you’re self-employed, a separate entrance for your work from home business office is a blessing to keep business clients separated from your private and personal family space. Many people are choosing to run their entire business from home, retaining an absolutely professional business service with no rent costs and zero commute from Grey Lynn to other parts of Auckland! Of course, you can still claim the tax benefits of using that work from home space, too, another benefit of working from home. Whether you choose to go up, or down, our reliable team of builders will help make your house bigger with the home addition of your dreams.


Bigger definitely is better! Many families are crying out for more space. Especially families sharing several generations under one roof. Whilst there are huge benefits to sharing a house, such as closer family connections and more personal care, it takes extra space to make it work really well. Stories often appear in the media bemoaning the lack of multi-generational homes. It looks like this is a growing trend but there are so few properties that provide for it, let alone provide it really well. We will help you to make that useless area, very useful and connect it seamlessly with your current home. At the same time, your new addition can be made accessible so that all generations can live more easily and safely together under one roof.


Going up means more light and more sunshine. With Grey Lynn being situated on the narrow isthmus of Auckland, that means your new home addition might even get a peek of the sea, better sunset views or more twinkly city light views at night. Being up as high as the birds at treetop level brings a genuine feeling of joy and connection with nature. The feeling can be quite magical, like your own private treehouse, but much bigger! What price for a view? Real Estate agents will easily confirm that homebuyers are willing to pay more for a view. Whether it’s a peek, or a full view over the sea, valley or bush – people love views. That lofty outlook from your new second story will bring a sense of openness and space borrowed from the outdoors as the extra unobstructed light floods through your home.


What would a whole extra house of room mean for you and your family? More bedrooms, more bathrooms, more space to move and play? More privacy and lovely quiet areas away from the everyday hum of household living? How about a parent suite, tucked far away from teenage ears and loud music. With your own walk-in wardrobe and beautiful spa-like ensuite bathroom; it’s like a private hotel suite at home! You work hard all day long, and a relaxing bedroom and lovely bath to soak in, or a big hot shower are just the things you need to ease away all those everyday worries and help you decompress and connect again. Start and end your day in style in your beautiful new bedroom suite home addition. We will help make it happen, and take away the stress with our experienced builders coordinating everything for you. Just step back in, and relax.
