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.

The quality and service we received from you was simply first class. The span of fencing that you replaced was certainly not an easy one to tackle but somehow you made it look easy and the fence itself is stunning. Also a pleasure to deal with. You turned up on time, cleaned up after yourself each night, and were a good genuine person. Thanks once again and I will make sure to recommend you to anyone and everyone who needs some fencing done.

Thanks Bryan and Karen for the professional work installing our glass pool fencing. Bryan did an amazing job working in the heat to make sure our fence was perfect. We are extremely happy and your quote was very competitive, would definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for perfection at a reasonable price. The only tradesman that arrived on time and cleaned up after he finished. SUPER HAPPY.

We recently had a fencing project completed by Mark and his colleague Curtis who had recently joined Mark to gain further experience in his own business. Curtis was a friendly and personable tradesman, his work was completed in an efficient and timely manner. We had the gate constructed for our new pup in the backyard, but as the result was so nice, wish it could be displayed out front for passers by! Thank you so much!
"Hi Mark, Thank you for the work you did, looks awesome and is heaps better! Again thank you for your top work."

I wanted to thank Sid for not only his quality finish on our picket fence but also his exceptional customer service. He goes above and beyond to please customers. He would ensure every little detail we requested was met at a high quality. I would strongly recommend Sid for any fencing job you may have… Great price, best materials and quality finish!!
