Need a Second Space? Considered a Studio?

When it comes to renovations and extensions we find many people don’t know where to start! And we truly believe sometimes the idea of more room gets too hard when they are not presented with all the options and costs. For details about how we can assist with a wide range of options check out our page on extension and renovations. But one option in particular that commonly gets overlooked is a simple “Studio“.

We have provided the below details on a studio we completed to help give you insight into this option.

Measuring 4.2m x 3.7m with 2.4m high walls and raking ceiling, it’s larger than your average size bedroom 

Uses for this second space are endless: #Study #Activityroom #Gamesroom#HomeOffice or in this case a #Studio 

Cost approx. 26K
With any form of construction, quality vs cost is a very big consideration.  So please only consider this cost as an indication for the level of quality that this client received. To help bring context to this cost we have provided the materials and specifications used on this studio in particular.
Materials and Specs: 
  • Treated pine sub-floor, wall frames and roof timber.
  • Colourbond iron roof gutter and downpipes.
  • James Hardi weatherboards to the exterior.
  • Grooved lining boards to internal walls with gyprock ceiling. (raked)
  • Aluminium clear glass windows with sills and architraves
  • Solid core french doors with glass panels and Gainsborough locking hardware
  • Hardwood timber step
  • Allowances for electrical, drafting and design & Shire approvals.
  • R2.5 wall batts and Anticon insulation to the roof.
  • No painting or Floor coverings include on cost as the client wanted to DYI.
  • Classed as non-habitable building.
But what if you want it to be habitable – Don’t stress we can compliantly manage this too. Check out our blog on Ancillary Dwelling AKA a “Granny Flat’’
