Mesh advice, please?

I want to replace some old Apple Time-Capsules in a friend's place with an alternative MESH system.

Unfortunately, all the off-the-shelf offerings seem to only offer up to three access points with a coverage of around 5,000 square feet or so (circa 600sq yards/metres). The property has a footprint of around 32 x 30 yards/metres or just 900 sq yards/metres and therefore circa 8,000 sq feet.

If we purchased a three pack of Google or Linksys or TP-Link or whatever, can we then just continue extending with further nodes?

Sorry if it seems a dumb question but I've been unable to find out from the manufacturers' sites.

Thanks in advance, for any help and advice.

I've been looking into Mesh for a business environment lately. You can purchase a package which contains 1 router and one or more nodes. Depending on where you place the router you can put a node near the fringe of the router signal to strengthen weak areas. I wouldn't think you need more than 1 node in addition to the router.
