Extending and uplifting the family home

A family in O’Connor wanted more space and to modernise their 1940s brick veneer cottage. We helped them achieve their wishes by knocking out a back wall, extending their home and making the most of their back yard.

What we did

Original homes in O’Connor are known for having good bones. The purpose of this project was to make the most of the existing cottage dwelling, extending it with modern open-plan living, including a new deck, living space, kitchen and master bedroom.

We installed north-facing double glazed Monaro windows, large sliding doors and automatic highlight windows, providing great airflow and more insulation against noise and the harsh Canberra elements.

Designed and installed by Simplicity Kitchens, the new kitchen and laundry are functional and beautiful. With a Caesarstone ‘Calcutta Nuvo’ composite stone benchtop in the kitchen, the family now has a stunning central place for their guests to gather around.

Simplicity also designed and installed joinery for a study nook off the living space, tying in nicely with the rest of the custom-built cabinetry.

We constructed the merbau deck to extend out the living space. When opening the large 6-panel sliding doors, the owners will create an indoor/outdoor living area, perfect for entertaining in the warmer months.

James Hardie Axon cladding surrounds the extension, giving it a sophisticated finish. This sought-after look adds an extra frontage, complementing the existing bricks while adding a modern element.

Giralang house extension

Giralang house extension

The perfect ensuite and walk-in robe

His priority was a triple garage for his ‘toys’. Her priorities were a new master bedroom, walk-in-robe and ensuite. Building any of these additions to your home adds a quality of living and value you will enjoy for many years to come.

This modest home in Giralang transformed when we achieved the expecting couple’s goals.

What we did

The sloping block comfortably allowed for the new three-car garage, which created the perfect platform for the large master bedroom, ensuite and walk-in robe.

A relocation of the existing WC, created a perfect doorway into the new bedroom. By relocating it rather than just demolishing the room, we minimised disruption to the existing house as we worked.

The owners sourced and pre-purchased all the internal features to speed up the build, including an IKEA walk-in robe, which our carpenters installed. We fitted new Monaro Windows throughout the home giving the owners more natural light and protection in the colder months.

The combination of DFB, proactive owners and the imminent arrival of baby saw this large extension built in just 18 weeks.

Evatt uplift

Renovation & extension to a northside home

This modern uplift on an already modern Evatt home gave it the ‘wow’ factor and has improved the functionality and value for the happy owners.

What we did

We took plans by HN Design and Drafting and brought them to life. The project included adding a large master bedroom, walk-in robe and ensuite. All new additions were punctuated with high ceilings, creating more space and natrual light.

The huge sunken loungeroom was an impressive new feature, highlighted by its polished concrete floor and large, double-sided fireplace from Burning Log. As the hub of the home, this living space is now practical, welcoming and sophisticated.

The brand new, double-glazed windows by Monaro Windows we installed will keep the heat from the roaring fire in for the family to enjoy in the colder months.

To complete this beautiful northside home improvement, we completely renewed the front of the house and added a large double garage and garden shed for extra storage.

Ainslie renovation & extension

Modern home improvements in Ainslie

We consulted with the owners of this Ainslie house throughout their renovation and extension process to bring their vision to life.

What we did

The hard-wearing burnished concrete floor by Grindstones combines with high ceilings to create a feeling of endless space; much needed for the three young children who occupy it.

We built a sunken lounge room and added a master bedroom and parents’ retreat, as per plans provided by a talented family member.

With the addition of some new uPVC windows, we ended up with a high-quality, modern finish.
