The house was quite ok in general, but the rear section was constrained. Kitchen was small with low ceiling. Deck was not quite large enough and the sail roof was a compromise. Master bed had no ensuite or wir.
Final cost for the makeover was around $240k, for a lot of work. A whole new deck and roof was added. Extensions at full ceiling height were made for the kitchen and a master bedroom. Real timber vj’s were used throughout. Ceiling is full 3m, matching the rest of house. Large windows were included. A generous butler’s pantry was managed to be built. All finishes match the house. This included a carefully laid out batten batten on the deck ceiling that took its cues from the internal ceilings.
A large double carport was also added.
