Upstairs Additions

Have you got wonderful views you’d like to maximise? Or maybe you’ve run out of space at ground level. Whatever your reason, M Sawyer Building can design and build a second storey addition to your home that not only provides space, but also adds value.


There are numerous reasons why homeowners choose to add a second storey to their home and the motivation for the project will ultimately influence the final design.


You may require a balcony or windows oriented to make the most of a water or landscape view, or perhaps your house is on a narrow lot that requires strategic placement of parapet walls and solar considerations. Or you may live in a heritage precinct that requires an informed understanding of streetscape and set-back regulations.

Major Renovations

Many homeowners love where they live, but their home no longer suits them in terms of size or style.


Home extensions and renovations can provide the ideal solution by giving you the space and design you need without the cost and inconvenience of moving or demolishing.

Home extensions can effectively provide a ‘new’ home in a much loved location by adding space and extra accommodation.

Kitchen renovations, bathroom and laundry renovations as well as updating of flooring, window frames and doors, or small structural or cosmetic changes to the exterior of the home are all effective ways to give a home a fresh, modern appeal.

Character Renovations

Renovating and extending a character home is a highly specialised area of building that requires craftsmanship of the highest standard to ensure the features of an older style home are carefully integrated into the new addition.


Meticulous attention to detail is paramount to ensure the workmanship is to the highest standard.


Mark maintains a low supervisor –to-client ratio to ensure that close, expert attention is given to the project every step of the way.

Mark visits each project on a daily basis to confirm that every detail meets the highest standard. Experience is key when supervising the construction of a renovation or addition.
