There’s no denying that as someone who may be considering a new home extension or addition, you are spoilt for choice.

It’s a very congested, confusing industry.

Builders come and go.

Some thrive over many years.


They have a knack of translating peoples’ dreams and aspirations, into first-class reality.

Ultimately, this ‘knack’ is the essential value of finding the right builder to extend your home and can make-or-break your dreams.

Sure, price is a factor but not the only.

From our family to yours

At SHI, we’ve been improving lifestyles since 1980.

It’s the reason we’re like family to several generations of South Australians who use us time again.

Our results stem from the experience to tailor and match ideas to peoples’ wishes.

That’s why the secret behind an outstanding home extension or home addition lies behind the scenes.

It’s where the combined experience and skills of the people behind your project will shine.

Experience counts

Many people think they can project-manage their new home extension themselves, only to find that dealing with so many different contractors is an absolute nightmare with time and cost blowouts.

Working with one person and one budget ensures no nasty surprises.

Over 36 years SHI has built a team of skilled craftsmen who can tackle any home extension or addition whatever the degree of difficulty.

Endless possibilities

Some families need an extra room or two because they are growing or want an extra, more practical entertainment and living area.

Others need a detached extension or want to accommodate grandparents living under the same roof.

Our clients will assist in taking the best option.

A larger backyard will allow for a less expensive ground floor extension while a compact yard may need an upper storey addition.

Our consultants will listen to your needs and stay with you through the planning and design stage, contract process and then council approvals.

They will measure your existing home and design your new extension practically, aesthetically and seamlessly.

Your project is then handed over to the building manager for construction.

The possibilities are endless and we’re not satisfied until you are.

This second storey addition at Hallett Cove is a stunning example.

Let’s talk
