This is part of our first home reno series. Please remember to read our "Reno & Home Improvement Advice" blog before you attempt such a large project on your own.
Ass to Class!
The two downstairs living areas were designed to create both a warm ambience to the entrance of the home and to give easy access to the rear decked area. The front lounge is more of a place to relax and contemplate, while the rear lounge is designed more for general family entertainment.
To start with the front lounge, it needed the old twin sliding doors that accessed the dining room closed up to accommodate the new kitchen going in and the other twin sliders from hallway removed to give a flow from front of house to the back. A single exit door in the lounge was also removed and widened to create the same size space of walk through as the old sliders in the hallway. Fireplace was converted from open fire to a gas log fire with stone façade and custom – made hardwood mantelpiece. Once again, we used double glazed PVC windows and sliding door were installed to replace existing ones and a sliding retractable fly screen was used on the doorway to the deck. Paint colours were chosen with the help of a stylist and floors sanded and coated in a satin clear finish to really bring out the best in the overall look and feel of the rooms. The walkthrough area that joins the two lounges and also the snug and kitchen had a fan light added to circulate air in all of these rooms and works brilliantly in conjunction with air conditioning!
Unique lighting along with LED stainless downlights really sets it all off.

Highly recommend Alastar, he continued working through dreadful weather to ensure the job would be finished on time so our two large dogs would be housebound for a minimal period of time

When your partners an ex fencer and couldn't build our fence due to injury I knew we needed a fencer who was going to have big shoes to fill. Mark you did an amazing job and filled those shoes. I would 100% recommend you to anyone who needs a new fence. Thank you.

I am so pleased with my new fence and sliding gate. Bryan attended to the smaller detail by professionally replacing the pavers and filling a hole in the brick wall. Going that extra mile makes such a difference.

When I called Mark today he said that Matthew was fantastic, he called him the same day and was out to do the quote the following day, he said that Matthew was great, friendly, professional & gives him a 5/5, he couldn’t speak highly enough of him.
