There are, however, a number of things you decide on building a double storey house. Make sure you have the following under your wraps before taking a step further:

Your Budget

The cost of building a double storey house has to do with much more than just what your builder quotes as the price. Take, for instance, the cost of preparing the land for building. This will vary depending on how smooth or rugged the terrain is. Take into account the buying price of the site as much as you consider the cost of the site works.

As part of the house construction costs, you will need to consider how much you will pay to put up a slab foundation. You will need to consult with your contractor about the foundation requirements for second storey addition.

A foundation for a two storey addition shouldn’t be as costly as that of a new house. You will only need to reinforce the foundation for a second storey addition. Once you have determined the total cost of construction, you should be able to come up with how much it will cost to finish the house.

The Design For Your Home

Are you planning to add a second storey to a concrete block house? You need to come up with a proper design. That’s as a way of creating an underpinning for the second storey. Make sure you pick a floor plan that meets your exact needs.

Put in mind unique needs such as how you prefer entertaining your guests, the orientation, and direction of the sun. You might want to ensure that your dining room, kitchen, and lounge are more exposed to the sun. Put your master suite on the topmost floor and also have it face the sun.

The Time It Takes For Construction

Even as you embark on building a two storey house, you need to have at the back of your mind how long it will take to complete it. Make sure you know when you can expect to occupy it. Save on renting costs by knowing when it is realistically possible to move into the new house.

Working With The Right Builder

Whether you choose to reinforce the foundation for a second storey addition or to go building a two storey house from scratch, you need to work with the right builder.

There are a number of contractors in Cape Town, so make sure you diligently sift through the crowd to get the right one. They should be able to offer you a variety of designs, the best customer service, and an impressive portfolio of past works.
