Im­pec­ca­ble ren­o­va­tion makes a win­ner

The Tribune (NZ) - - GARDENING -

It’s Al­ter­ation Spe­cial­ists Manawatu Ltd’s im­pec­ca­ble at­ten­tion to de­tail and high level of work­man­ship that has won them the Reg­is­tered Mas­ter Builders Mitre 10 Ren­o­va­tions $250,000-$500,000 Na­tional Award. The ren­o­va­tion was only 40m2 but it has trans­formed a 1930s house with a gal­ley kitchen into a won­der­ful fam­ily home with a con­tem­po­rary edge. The ren­o­va­tion in­cluded a stun­ning new kitchen and laun­dry and a cov­ered out­door area set be­side an in ground swim­ming pool.

The judges com­mented, the in­te­gra­tion of the ren­o­va­tion work into the ex­ist­ing struc­ture of the house was car­ried out to the high­est level. ‘‘At­ten­tion to the small­est de­tail saw the builder achieve fan­tas­tic re­ten­tion of char­ac­ter,’’ said an im­pressed judge.

Per­fectly align­ing the matai floors in­ter­nally with the kwila deck­ing tim­ber on the ex­ter­nal deck­ing is just one ex­am­ple of how the mi­nut­est de­tail can have such a big im­pact on the over­all flow and fin­ish.

The fo­cus of a ren­o­va­tion by Al­ter­ation Spe­cial­ists was on en­ter­tain­ing and out­door liv­ing and won the Reg­is­tered Mas­ter Builders Mitre 10 Ren­o­va­tions $250,000-$500,000 na­tional award.
