Design

We design your custom-built home extensions by listening first to your lifestyle needs and your big renovation ideas. We ensure your extension in Glen Iris is purpose-built for you.

Working Drawings

Before the builder creates your home extensions, they need working drawings to build from. We have a network of professionals who can create appropriate working drawings of your ground floor extensions or second storey extensions.

Permits And Engineering

We liaise directly with your council to provide them with all the necessary reports on the site. We also acquire permits for your second storey or ground floor extensions.

Assurances

We have various assurances in place to make sure our work is top notch. For example, we choose to use HIC6 Master Builder Home Improvement contracts on site. We are fully insured, and we work on a fixed price agreement.

Contracts

Our 2-stage contract allows you to pull out and save some money if preliminary site investigations are not favourable to your plans for home extensions.

Construction

The safety of you and your family is of prime importance to us, which is why we only use tradespeople who complete an OH&S course to ensure they’re familiar with all best practices. Independent surveyors keep track of the progress of the build. And should you have any questions, you can ask your project manager at any time.

Glen Iris Project

Design Process

The brief was to provide a modern addition consisting of a Family Room which flowed from the Kitchen, a Laundry, Master Bedroom, Ensuite and large built in robe. The block had fall to the rear which we had to take into consideration during the design process. The first option was a step down from the existing floor level to accommodate the fall of the land. This design was initially met with enthusiasm by our Clients but after reconsidering their options and lifestyle needs our Clients requested a revised design. This, along with some unavoidable town planning requirements meant a new design was required. The new design incorporated a Laundry and WC to the ground with external access. The aim was to keep the same floor level whilst delivering a modern looking structure. Our Clients finally settled on a contemporary cube design to contrast the old and the new. The existing home is well built and maintained. Keeping the original design, previous internal upgrades were made, however, it remained a three bedroom, one bathroom home.

The family have two children and needed more room to accommodate their changing needs. They did not want to move from the area so the natural solution was to extend.

An undercover entertaining area was mandatory to provide flow-on access to the future pool. A balcony was created off the Bedroom and Family Room utilising the northern aspect. It was a joy to create this home!
