House Raising and Building In Underneath


“Add Space, Reach Breezes, Gain Views and Add Value to Your Home”


House RaisingDo you need more living space?  Or do you simply want to make the most of your existing space? Do your old house stumps need to be replaced with newer, safer ones? What we call ‘house raising’ (or house lifting) and building in underneath might be for you. By raising your house, you are creating a larger living space without having to move. You are also potentially creating a safer living space for you and your family by replacing older stumps and replacing them with new ones.

The team at Fraederich Homes is passionate about stunning, unique designs that suit your requirements.  They are also expert at providing a home that is safe and compliant with the building code. At Fraederich Homes, you will be working closely with Enrico (Rico) Fraederich and his team to make improvements to your home.

Cost of Raising a House and Building Underneath

What are the benefits of house raising?



By raising your house and building in underneath it, you are creating a larger living space for you and your family. Raising your home allows for you to utilize the space underneath which can be used for anything from a garage to an extra entertainment area.


Most places in Australia get to experience beautiful summer days. Although these can be pleasant, often it can be uncomfortably hot inside our homes. This is where house raising can be a great investment. By raising your house, you are exposing your home to breezes and ventilation, which may make those long summer days a little more comfortable. This might also save you money in the long run by decreasing your air conditioning usage.


Although older homes can provide a beautiful living space, age can sometimes pose safety concerns. The state of your current stumps in an old Queenslander, for example, may leave a lot to be desired. If your stumps are looking like they need to be replaced, the team will replace these for you.  They will ensure you are provided with a solid foundation that meets safety standards. Fraederich Homes will also work with you to preserve the style of your home throughout the process.

Minimize Flood Damage

Depending upon the location of your property, the cost to raise a house above flood zone may be worthwhile.  Another advantage to raising your home is in the unlikely event of a flood, you know your valuables are more likely to be protected. Floods can cause terrible damage to the inside of houses.  If you are in a flood zone, by raising it you are potentially saving yourself some future damage.
