Queenslanders have been doing it for decades: lifting and building an extension underneath an existing home. In and around Brisbane builders are well practised in raising up a house and creating more living space at ground level.
The costs for raising a house in Brisbane ranges from $15,000 to an average of around $25,000 when raising and restumping a three-bedroom Brisbane Queenslander.
There are other additional costs to consider as part of house raising including; plans, approvals, earthworks, plumbing, electrical, excavation, stairs and a concrete slab should you choose it. With these additional services can bring the total cost to approximately $80,000 on average.
After the house is raised and all the additional services are completed you can move back into the house. The rest of the project such as building in underneath can be completed and where you will find additional costs for construction.
