Cost to Build a Garage Calculator NZ for 2020 by Superior Renovations ®

In New Zealand, 92% of households have at least one vehicle according to One Roofs (2019) research so it’s not a surprise that most home buyers and renters are looking for property that has a garage. Does it actually add any value to the property? Not as much as people think but in short, it adds 2-3% to the sale price of the house – however it’s different for all locations (eg it will be perceived as more valuable in an area like Central Auckland, people are paying $50,000 to $75,000 just for a car park)

The Average Cost of a New Kitchen Renovation in Auckland

Outdated decor, cumbersome layout and faulty appliances can take the joy out of cooking. These things usually lead to people wondering about renovating their kitchen. However the starting point can often leave people feeling overwhelmed and delaying the project altogether.

Determining a budget for your kitchen renovation

  1. Assess your current kitchen: Take a step back and look at your kitchen. What is it that actually makes your current life harder in the kitchen? Is it the space? the functionality? inconvenient layout or the dated bench-top, cupboards and design. Your next step should be to see what your needs are as a family and how you use your kitchen. For example if you entertain a lot then you might want to get an island added. However if you do not cook much then you might just want to upgrade a few things in the kitchen. Always renovate based on what your family uses the kitchen for. In terms of design and themes, do some research on kitchen renovation ideas. There are plenty of resources online which can help you get a rough idea of the type of style your family prefers.
  2. Plan a Budget: Your budget will determine the extend of renovation that can be carried out. Your budget will eventually determine your plan. Moving plumbing and electric outlets can prove to be expensive. Hence if your budget does not allow it then think about working with the current layout of your kitchen. Our kitchen renovation cost calculator below will give you a basic idea on how much different aspects of a new kitchen renovation will cost in NZ and Auckland. You can also check our blog written by Jimmy our renovation expert on how much renovations cost in Auckland for the year 2020.
  3. Research and choose the right company: Every renovation company offers something unique to its clients. However not every renovation company will provide what you need in terms of renovations. Hence choose the company carefully to fit your needs. Do some research online and meet various companies to see how they conduct business. This will give you an idea of what they will be like during the renovation process. When you meet representatives from a company, always ask them for their past case studies, references from their old clients, the warranties and guarantees they will provide. Check out our checklist to see what questions to should be asking your builder/company.

The cost of a new kitchen will depend on your layout, personal preferences, quality of chosen fittings, bench-top choice, tiling options, extra extras and the list goes on! We’ve outlined the average costs below to give you a quick idea, but you can enter your exact details into the kitchen hen renovation cost calculator to receive a rough estimate.

House Extension Cost Calculator (Auckland) 2020, Superior Renovations®

House-Extension-Cost-Calculator-NZ-Updated-for-2020-1024x678, Kitchen Renovation, Bathroom Renovation, House Renovation Auckland

The Average Cost of a House Extension in Auckland

Why consider a house extension when you could sell your house and move to a larger home? Before you use the house extension cost calculator, here are four good reasons to consider adding a house extension:

 

  • If you like the area you’re living in, you don’t have to move
  • Make the changes you want to make and not settle for something that’s just okay
  • A home extension may be more affordable than moving to a larger home
  • You may be attached to your current home or location and not want to leave

 

As a general rule of thumb, the average cost of a house extension in Auckland– a 50SQM ground floor house extension costs $225,000 – $300,000. That works out to $4,500m2 – $6,000m2 (Single storey extension). Doesn’t include adding bathrooms, kitchens, architectural fees, consent fees, GST or structural engineer fees.

We’ve put together this house extension cost calculator to give you an idea of cost (ball park) for those who are just doing a bit of research, please keep in mind that this calculator generates “rough” estimates and should not be used as a quote – for an accurate estimate, please contact one of our project managers.
