There is a common theme with extension plans throughout Brisbane which all tend to be either focussed on maximizing space for a growing family or taking advantage of a better view point.

Whatever your reason and whether it be a single storey or double storey extension, there is no doubt it is considered as one of the best ways to add value and more room to your home. Our design team at Live Best specialise in extension plans and have provided countless sets of high end designs to all types of houses and suburbs throughout Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.

Our experienced extension designers can talk you through the ins and outs of any permits or building approvals you may need.
