Award Winning Century-Old Home Whole House Renovation

All Projects
The plan to restore this century-old home, while retaining its original characteristics, meant starting with excellent design and required a dedicated team of trades people who placed quality at the forefront. 

Our award-winning renovation team of expert Master Builders, Painters, Electricians and our skilled specialty subcontractors were excited by the challenge of compromised foundations and full-scale top-to-bottom house renovation and restoration project.

Existing piles were re-levelled or replaced and new piles installed under load-bearing walls. Reinforced concrete replaces the perimeter foundation. 

Timber weatherboards were removed in sections, each thoroughly prepared, painted and replaced. Doors and windows, including original lead lights, were similarly restored with care and attention to detail. 

While the original floorplan has been retained, contemporary upgrades ensure this home is warm and comfortable throughout. There are two new tiled bathrooms, a designer kitchen and laundry. Heat pumps, a new log burner and insulation have been installed. Gas, new pipework and data points were part of a total plumbing and electrical overhaul. Outdoors, an extensive Kwila deck envelopes a mature tree and landscaping completes the picture.
