How Much Does It Cost To Raise A House?

Understanding the Costs of Raising a House in Brisbane

Raising a house in Brisbane is a significant endeavor that requires careful consideration of various factors, including costs and planning. It’s essential for homeowners to understand the expenses and requirements involved to make informed decisions about their house raising projects.

Average Pricing and Additional Costs

The average cost of raising and restumping a three-bedroom Brisbane Queenslander typically ranges from $30,000 to $35,000. However, homeowners should be aware of the periphery costs associated with planning and reconnection of services that significantly impact the total expense. These costs include; plans, approvals,  surveys, earthworks, plumbing, electrical work, excavation, stairs, and the option of a concrete slab, potentially bringing the total cost in excess of $100,000.

It’s important to note that these prices can vary from site to site. For example a sloping block will incur more costs in excavations than a flat block. These figures serve as general averages to provide homeowners with an understanding of what to expect when planning for house raising.

Local Design Companies for House Raising Plans

When considering house raising, it’s crucial to have the right documentation, including building plans, working drawings, and engineering drawings. To assist homeowners in obtaining these documents, we recommend having a chat to two local Brisbane based design companies specialising in house raising plans:

Their experienced team can provide a full set of working drawings and help homeowners obtain quotes from builders. They understand the specific requirements for house raising projects and can offer valuable insights to streamline the planning process.

To obtain a firm quote for the required works, completed building plans (including working drawings) engineering drawings, and soil testing are essential. Once these documents are ready, send them through to our team and we can provide you with a free and formalised quote (as long as the correct documentation is provided). Homeowners and builders are often blown away by just how detailed our quotes are, we really leave no stone un-turned.
