CLIENT PROJECT BRIEF:
We were tasked with adding a new kitchen, bathroom / laundry and living area to the rear of this 1920s home.
Initially, our clients were intending to manage this project, however due to the complexities involved with Council requirements and order of trades, we were awarded with the work.
WHAT WE DID:
Our work on this project included:
• Demolishing the old verandah and preparation of site for compaction
• Underpinning to existing stumps across rear of home, with chemical grout injection
• Construction of timber framed floor, walls and roof on stumps
• Matching the roof pitch to the existing one to make seamless transition from new to old
• Lining the plasterboard walls with insulation
• Providing plumbing and electrical services to new addition
• Tiling and cabinetry with stone benchtops
• Raising timber alfresco window on gas struts in kitchen
• Constructing floating timber shelving
The home was sinking which was a pretty big challenge to face on this project. To overcome this, we chemically injected grout around the stumps to ensure the future integrity of the new addition is upheld.
Our clients now enjoy their spacious new kitchen and living space in their larger home. It’s well integrated into this gorgeous 1920s home.
The new addition also makes the most of the available space and has added more value to their property.
Given the overwhelming processes involved with this addition, we managed the liaisons with Council and managed the order of tradesmen to ensure the best result for our client and a stress-free experience.
WHAT OUR CLIENT SAYS:
We were initially going to do this project ourselves, but when we realised what was involved with Council regulations and approvals and the complexities of having work of this nature completed, we decided to engage Unique Residence.
Adam and the team made this experience easy and enjoyable for us and we know it wasn’t an easy job.
We knew we were in the best hands and felt in the loop every step of the way, without being bogged down in the smaller details. Adam took care of it all and nothing was too much trouble.
