REN­O­VA­TION TIME­LINE

Home Beautiful - - DESIGN FILE -

MARCH 2015:

The couple en­gages Void Build­ing De­sign to work with them on the new floor­plan and de­sign. It takes four months to get the new lay­out right, due to the large scale of the ren­o­va­tion.

JULY 2015:

The fam­ily moves out as de­mo­li­tion be­gins. The house is es­sen­tially razed, bar one ex­ter­nal wall. Steve and Si­mone de­cide to man­age costs by work­ing around the pool, not up­grad­ing, and are able to save ma­ture palms that give screen­ing from neigh­bours.

AU­GUST 2015:

De­mo­li­tion ends and ex­ten­sion of the con­crete slab gets un­der way. It dra­mat­i­cally en­hances the home’s foot­print, ex­tend­ing to the pool edge with a can­tilevered roof over a new timber deck. A steel beam is made a fea­ture in the out­door liv­ing area and elim­i­nates the need for sup­port posts that would in­hibit the view and the flow from in­doors. OC­TO­BER 2015: The win­dows and doors go in, along with a seven-me­tre timber stack­ing door that spans the width of the kitchen/din­ing space. Steve and Si­mone spend count­less nights and week­ends at the home site, tiling and do­ing what­ever else they can to help save costs and ex­pe­dite the build.

MARCH 2016: Cabi­netry is in­stalled and the fam­ily move back into the trans­formed home.
