Case Study – Suburban Haven

A project outline of a Modern Suburban Renovation – Extension in the Hunter Valley NSW.

Our client had considered for more than two years how the existing homestead could be renovated to take full advantage of the leafy surrounds, encompassing the dam and maximizing the morning sunlight into the property. Many factors were considered before settling on the concept for the Modern Suburban Renovation Extension.

Our engineer client worked closely with architects to develop the concept to a set of plans, and engaged Proctor Building Solutions as the project builder. The project was and outstanding success, winning the 2011 MBA Building Award of Excellence in the category of Alterations, Additions Renovations and Restorations over $500,000.00 for the project. In addition to this the outdoor area was recognized as winner in the 2011 HIA Best Outdoor Residential Project of the year.

Our scope of works was to construct a new living room and extend the existing dining room, with new balcony off the verandah area. Raked ceilings were installed as an added feature to the new living room, creating a feeling of vast space and luxury. The use of classic decorative”timber look a like” aluminium doors and windows were installed to the new extension works, these finished the interior and exterior perspective of the home beautifully, barely obvious that they weren’t in fact solid timber frames. Our team completed the construction of all retaining walls around the pool and two cabanas and outdoor areas, tiling to the new patio areas as well as the floor tiling to the new structure and the existing kitchen/living/dining areas. Slot drainage was installed in the external tiled areas creating an effective drainage system with minimal impact on the aesthetics of the area. Proctor Building Solutions project managed all remaining works such as kitchen installation, pool and spa installation and remaining works to fully integrate the house extension, outdoor entertainment and pool areas.

The home has been beautifully adapted to the owners needs, successfully allowing them to create the perfect ambiance and simply enjoy the best of life’s pleasures in perfect surrounds of their newly renovated stunning home and surrounding gardens.
