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.

Hi Everyone, I would just like to Thank Alastar & Matt, for the great job, they did on replacing the back & side fence yesterday.

Once again, Many Thanks!

We knew we had an excellent fence builder in Harley within five minutes of meeting him. He is very knowledgeable and a great communicator with a superb attention to detail. Harley listened to what we wanted and offered various options to us about how we could get our desired quality of fence within our budget. He was quick to research our requests, send us a very detailed quote and always followed up an email with a text or phone call offering any assistance in explanation. I have met many tradies in my time, but the quality of communication and engagement by Harley and the VIP team from Mornington was absolute first-class.

Congratulations to Mark from VIP Home Services fencing for the completion of our classy new Colorbond Fence. Mark integrated our initial ideas with his own suggestions to produce a Breezeway Colorbond fence with zigzag panels, and an eye pleasing appearance. The whole process from design & quoting, demolition of the old fence, to construction with several included extras to perfect the job, was seamless. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone wanting a quality fence made with superior professional standards.

Dear Ange, I just wanted to say thanks and what a pleasure it was to have you build my back fence. At the time of calling you I was in a desperate situation of needing the fence built urgently, you were not only able to meet my needs with the timeframe, but your advise on what would be best with regard to how the fence should be constructed, and the assurance re the quality of work and materials overall represents 100% satisfaction on my part. Once again thanks for everything, the fence looks great, and I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs a fence. Cheers.
