The ren­o­va­tion

Home Paint It - - MAKEOVER -

The trans­for­ma­tion be­gan in Septem­ber 2016 and was com­pleted by Novem­ber – just in time for the school hol­i­days. First off, the garage roll door was re­placed with a win­dow, the wall con­nect­ing the garage and the rest of the house was bro­ken through to ac­com­mo­date an in­te­rior door, the walls were plas­tered and painted, the floors tiled and down­lights and ad­di­tional plugs in­stalled. Plas­tic boxes on the shelves are used to stash toys and other items and the Naudés cre­ated built-in kists along the wall for the dual pur­pose of neat stor­age and seat­ing. The kists are child-friendly with gas lifts (the same mech­a­nism used in car boots) in­stalled so that when open, the heavy lids won’t fall and hurt the chil­dren’s fin­gers.
