This was a big one. Home was in need of major repairs and updating. Owners bought this property with big plans to change it to their particular needs. We had 18mths of planning and discussions which included a change of architect. There was to be extensive changes to size and layout of the finished product. Both Builder and owners worked together to create there now big beautiful home. Builder managed to keep owners living in home during the whole building works, never an easy challenge to pull-off. New home is has a 6+ star rating. Outsides works are ongoing.
Old dwelling was about 170m2 living. Completed build is about 345m2 living.
Watch this space for completion photos. Should be to long now.
Walker Flat - Addition
On the mighty Murray, this shack was in need of numerous upgrades and new underfloor plumbing. From Designing, Drafting, Demolition to a completed rebuild. Started in June2011 to completion in Dec 2011. All building contractors worked to a tight schedule never to hold up other trades. All worked very well together even with all the variations thrown in by client. With challenging design work to make new building tie into existing 2 storey building.
This family home was becoming to small. Through many discussions and design changes before starting the end result was a much bigger home. Extra 45m2 living and 13m2 on 2 bedrooms. Plus a shuffling of some walls within original home and a totally new external shell. Overall a great result for a growing family.
Walker Flat - Shack
Original shack was too small and had many alterations done to it over the years. We salvaged all that was reusable and dumped the rest of the building including concrete base where applicable. We then set about building their dream shack. A number of changes/additions were made during construction at customer's request. Total contract was done on time as scheduled including extras.
Echunga - Extension
This job was one of our favorites. This client, for years, wanted a large living room with plenty of light and leading out into a back verandah/eating area. After much consideration and drawings this dream became a reality. A lot of the design was orientated around high energy efficiency. ie window locations, glass type, eve widths, different insulation levels and colours. The end result is better than expected.
Mt Barker - Renovation
Customer had 9m x 3m section of home at rear of house that was the kitchen/eatery. It had extensive termite damage and had deteriorated beyond repair. With considerable design and construction methods discussed it was decided to remove entire room and walls, leaving roof intact. A complete re-build of this room was created with better than expected results.
Macclesfield - Home
This home is under construction at present. This roof design is very unusual. The roof slopes in both directions making the carpentry work very complicated.
Strathalbyn - addition
This old building was of no use to home owner, so with some long discussions and design parameters the new room was created. This has a doorway into the adjoining lounge/kitchenette.
Walker Flat - Extension
Client needed extra bedrooms and ensuites. Due to lack of room in existing shack it was decided that going up was the answer. Stairs come from within existing up to 2nd story. A balcony was built out from master bedroom looking out over the River Murray.
