In the Brisbane area, raising a house is common — whether it’s to protect from floods or create a spacious home without impinging on yard space. While it’s usually straightforward, certain rules must be followed when it comes to raising a house in Brisbane. You need a designer who understands whether your plan meets Queensland regulations. Our experienced designers can talk you through the ins and outs of any permits or building approvals you may need. 

To make the most of your space and ensure your new build suits your needs, you need a building designer you can trust. Raising a home, if done incorrectly, can cause costly mistakes, including structural damage to the original property. At Live Best Building Designs, we are meticulous when it comes to the details. We have substantial experience when it comes to house raise and build under design plans, so you can rest assured knowing you’re in safe hands.

While safety is undoubtedly important, we know the overall look of the house raise and build is also an essential feature. A successful house raise and build under design will blend safety, functionality and aesthetics. Designs need to carefully balance:

  • Your lifestyle needs
  • Your budget
  • Your style
  • Your comfort

We can help you design an extension underneath your existing home that ticks all the boxes. We often liaise with credible house raise companies including the experienced team at RMH to ensure designs match realistic raise and build under constructions and budgets.

Our team of experienced and reputable designs will work closely with you to bring your plans to life.
