House extensions

An extension or addition adds space and value to your existing property. Making alterations to your living spaces – to add natural light, open up rooms and modernise – can breathe fresh air into any property.



Home renovations

Renovations involve a lot of skill. In fact more than a new build because we are working around an existing building. Often we don’t have the original plans and we need to match to features and finishes you have already. But we have the expertise to plan the project right and meet your budget.

By fitting exterior doors and decking we can make your living spaces come to life. Open up smaller spaces by removing walls, or fit new windows to make the most of the Kapiti Coast lifestyle. We can create bright modern spaces.

Character restorations

We also get passionate about older character homes and have brought many villas and homestead back to life. We can show you some past projects that we’re proud of.

Kitchens you'll love

A lot of families put up with a tired worn out kitchen. Overhauling cabinetry adds sparkle, function and value to your kitchen and living area.

Case study

House extensions

“In 2009 we decided to extend our 1930’s three bedroom bungalow to include a new dining area and incorporate a lounge which would get all day sun.  It was a typical older stucco home with an open fire and no insulation.

We were very fortunate to have SWT Building complete this work. Scott went to great lengths to keep the internal character of our home with the new build. He was very particular with his workmanship and we were impressed at the research he did to obtain the right materials to replicate the original.

He had since completed the rest of the house with new double glazed doors and windows and re-gibed all rooms with batts in the walls and ceilings. This is now a much warmer and healthier home.

Scott knows his building trade and was very conscientious with his work and always was compliant with the building codes – no hassles with the building inspectors!

We would definitely recommend SWT Building anytime. Scott is an experienced confidant builder with outstanding work ethics and his ideas fitted extremely well into our new room. We got exactly what we wanted.”
