Before & After's

Here's a job that gave us (and now the owners) a huge amount of pleasure. The brief was simple. Turn this unloved spa area into an entertainers paradise. We reckon we've achieved it.

What was a drab and dark front yard has now been transformed into light, airy and interesting. Here we demolished the brick fence and built a new picket fence and entry, replaced the verandah columns with new posts (in keeping with the style of the house), removed the faded and broken blinds, replaced the glass around the front door entrance to let more light inside, organised for our painters to work their magic and gave the front yard a thorough makeover as well.

The customer didn't have room for a full-size shed but still wanted to keep their bikes out of the rain whilst maintaing unimpeded access from the front of the house to the back of the house. The side access to the house was quite wide so we designed and built this lean-to shed to accommodate the bikes, which keeps them dry and leaves enough access to pass through as well. Bike hanging racks enable up to 4 bikes to be stored at any time.

This bathroom was very tired but the owner didn't want to spend too much money on a renovation, so we pulled the old cabinet out and replaced it with this flat-pack/benchtop and new taps etc. purchased from Bunnings. As an extra cost-saving the owner was happy to have the wall tiles painted instead of replaced. To do this we used a special primer as the intermediary between the tiles and the paint.

The front-entry was on the side of the house with this small verandah. Visitors often had trouble identifying where the entry was, so we removed it and built a new entry and verandah so that the front door was obvious from the street and there was still room for a verandah. We enhanced it with some victorian lacework. Other work included a new garden along the front path with less intrusive trees which opened up the small space and made access much easier. A very dramatic change for these happy owners.

An example of a backyard that has been hedged, mowed and weeded regaining what was once an overgrown "uninviting" area.

An example of a front yard that desperately needed some TLC. Again it has been hedged, mowed and weeded to present it with the "best face" possible to the front street whilst sticking to a very tight budget.
