Yeah that's potentially an option too but not one we'd prefer.

We added master bedroom, bathroom, laundry and toilet with basin. It cost $40,000.

Make sure you check out council requirements before the suburb before you commit to something. In our suburb after x amount of renos you actually have to raise the whole house to be a certain height off the ground...which is not a cheap exercise. Our neighbours are doing a knock down rebuild because in the end their planned renos were going to cost a fortune due to the council requirements.

A couple of years ago we remodelled and extended a double brick home in Melbourne owner building.
Added a dining, lounge, study, laundry with toilet as well as an inground pool. Hardwood refloored everywhere, re-stumped existing, rewired entire house, re-roofed entire house, ducted heating and cooling, two new bathrooms and a new kitchen.
Total bill was less than $150k.

I'm actually feeling better seeing how much value people are getting for their money.
Odd question, but has anyone had any trouble matching bricks or roof tiles etc?

Depending on the bricks a good brick layer can mix the bricks so you barely notice.
Tiles should be muh easier to match. There the biggest issue is older homes that have an obsolete style. In this instance if you live in a major city you should be able to source from a salvage yard, gumtree or the local rag

You can do the bagging render, which I think is kind of cute, for about $3k
