More and more New Zealanders, particularly in Auckland and the Greater Auckland region, are adding extra space by lifting their house to build an extra storey underneath. With careful planning, your basement conversion will also add capital value.

House Lifters is recognised internationally for our house lifting expertise, and all our house lifts are designed, overseen and signed off by one of our Registered Engineers.
OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM
With our 3-metre High Lift, House Lifters can lift and support your house, then build your new:
- Living Space
Whether the house was never big enough or you’ve outgrown it, a basement conversion will maximise use of your house and section. Adding an extra living space, bedroom/s, bathroom by building underneath your house can also be a very wise investment, especially in Auckland.
- Rental / Self-contained Unit / Granny Flat
Wanting rental income, a return on your investment? Add on a storey underneath to create a self-contained flat to rent/let as a holiday rental. Or gain extra space and privacy for a parent/parents to live with you, or simply for guests to enjoy.
- Home Office or Commercial Space
Convert your basement and turn your morning commute, into a stroll downstairs. If you want to work from home (or already do) and need a more professional work environment, build your business up, by building down. House Lifters can also provide Commercial fit-outs.
- Internal Access Garage
You’ll love the convenience of an internal access garage – especially on cold, wet days. Your new garage will help with re-sale value too (warning though - once you’re used to having an internal access garage, it’s hard to imagine living anywhere that doesn’t have one!).
- Storage Space
‘A place for everything, and everything in its place’… Not many people can say they enough storage. By converting the basement into extra storage space, you can clear out the house, the garage, and if the section took some of the overflow, that can be transformed too.
How much will a Basement Conversion cost?
Following our initial Consultation with you, House Lifters will present a breakdown of costs (plus a 3D Concept Design Plan and if required, Engineers drawings). Factors which may influence the cost of the conversion include: ease of site access, if any drainage, foundation, repiling, earthworks and excavation work is required, and if we need to obtain specialist Reports and Consent/s on your behalf.
