RAISE UP - BUILD UNDER | EXTENSION - RENOVATION
Floor Area: 341 m2
Year Completed: 2015
With this block being so close to the water we were challenged with engineering the footings once we started the dig. Working closely with the client and the engineers we were able to come to a resolution allowing the build to continue on schedule and most importantly on budget.
Our client’s vision was to keep as much charm from the original cottage as possible. Restoring the cottage and blending the old with new required attention to detail and communicating not only with our clients but with our trades throughout the build to ensure that the charm was sustained.
This beautiful renovation turned a two bedroom cottage into a dual living home. The main house having three bedrooms including the master with a walk in robe, main bathroom and separate wash room. Two living areas and a large back deck showcasing all aluminium handrails and screens fabricated in house by Newman Structural Steel and Aluminium Fabrication.
The second living space has one bedroom full kitchen with a dining room opening out onto the back patio.
The front stairs leading to the upper level and window hoods are all fabricated out of aluminium for longevity and no maintenance, while keeping the post war home look.
