Glen Iris Renovations and Extensions Projects

Moving from a neighbourhood or suburb you grew up in or moving out of a home that you really love is not an easy thing to do. However, the reason most people move out of their homes is because of a lack of space or certain amenities they would like. 

However, it’s not totally necessary to relocate as modern home renovations and extensions can help you transform your existing home into your dream property. That is where Period Extensions & Designs are here to help!

Period Extensions & Designs has been in the business of extending and renovating some of the most luxurious homes in Glen Iris for over 20 years. We have successfully completed projects ranging from small renovations to large-scale extensions that both increased property values while also providing families with a home that matched their lifestyles.
