Any builders on this forum that would be able to assist me with a question I have regarding a Queenslander style home. The home has been built on concrete stumps, 12 of which require replacing - not immediately, but in the near future. This will cost approximately $15,000 as I understand. The alternative option I have in my mind, given the house is legal height underneath, is to build an extra bedroom and bathroom. I was wondering whether this option may save the cost of re-stumping as the house would then be supported by the new walls?
