House raising is a common practice throughout Brisbane and surrounding areas. The process involves temporarily separating a house from the
foundations using hydraulic jacks. The home is then raised to a new level and replacement supports are installed. This is a building niche
that requires a very particular skills and understanding.
While it is important to ensure that your home is raised by the correct people, once done there are a plethora of benefits. Some homeowners
will choose to build within the newly created space. Others will choose to leave the space free.
There are a number of reasons to raise a home:
- Protecting against flood damage
- Improving views
- Carports and Garages
- Creating a secondary residence such as granny flat or student accommodation
- Provide more liveable space for the family
House raising is so popular throughout the Brisbane region thanks to several key reasons. A majority of the existing homes in Brisbane are built in the traditional Queenslander style. These homes are perfect candidates for house raising. Similarly, Post-War Homes (which are plentiful throughout the region) are also primed and ready for raising.
Flood relief is another factor that influences the decision to raise a home.

ECO Homes Eco Homes are rapidly becoming THE way to build or remodel your home. An Eco home is one that is built to reduce waste and energy usage and recycle building materials where possible, as well as to minimise the effects on the environment.
Eco Homes feature sustainability options such as insulation, rain water tanks as well as good building design to maximise cross ventilation, which reduces the need for artificial cooling. All of these things combined make a big impact on the environment.
