New Builds and Major Renovations
We offer design consulting from concept to completion. We work with draftsmen and architects to provide council applications, from Complying Development through to full Development Applications and Construction Certificates.We work with experienced engineers to ensure you only get certified, quality structural work because we believe it’s better to get it right the first time.
The following architecturally designed home combined elegant finishes, practical functionality and included a number of sustainable features to help reduce long term running costs of maintenance, as well as heating and cooling.
Set amongst the gum trees, you’d never know this architecturally designed house was surrounded on all sides by other properties.
Designed to be extremely functional as well as pretty, this 6×5 metre kitchen was built for less than $20,000. Yes, miracles can happen.
Orienting your house to the north can make so much difference to having a light and bright house in Winter.

We will take the time to help you decide exactly what you need from your home and assist you to get there with as little heartache as possible. From planning and construction through to completion, we will work with you to bring new life and efficiency to your existing home.
This client had several unusable small rooms as well as a lovely backyard that only the laundry window and garage got to see. She designed this sunroom that would lead out into her beautifully bright backyard.
After a holiday to Bali, this client wanted to bring a little bit of his holiday home with him. We helped him to design and build this Balinese outdoor entertaining area. His next stage in the project will be to renovate the kitchen and house leading in from the deck.
On a tight block this client wanted an unobtrusive place to park his work vehicle. We worked alongside him to produce this quaint undercover parking spot.
This client’s new home experiences terrible wind and they were unable to use their outdoor entertaining area. We built this glass bi-fold door enclosure so that it could be used all year round.
New Bathrooms, Minor Upgrades, Complete Makeovers
Bathrooms can be a tricky business. Because there’s plumbing, tiling, electrical, waterproofing and construction involved. We are able to source reliable licensed trasdepersons to work alongside us to get you what you need with as little fuss as possible.
The ensuite in a new parent’s retreat, this client wanted to find an oasis at the end of the day. We helped design and build this new bathroom with its feature 600×900 copper tile wall, heated floor and Louvre windows.
This family bathroom has no window and is regularly used by teenagers. The client requested a space that was bright and easy to clean.
In desperate need of a renovation, this client wanted to have an earthy, yet vibrant feel to her very tired bathroom. We oversaw the entire renovation and rendered the walls and shower with Natural Waterproof Marrakesh by Rockcote, installed her “corrugated” bath tub and sourced a reputable tiler to lay the “Timber” look tile that the client chose.
