Project Description

545 – Mt Gravatt East

Back to Folio

This project included an 80m2 second storey extension for the kids bedrooms along with a complete renovation of the ground floor to create an open plan kitchen with butlers pantry, living, dining and a master suite including walk in wardrobe and ensuite.

The second storey addition to the highset timber clad home included two bedrooms with built-in-robes, one study, an open retreat space and a large main bathroom. There was also a minor forward extension on the existing ground floor for a new covered entry deck and external staircase.

Before the Update and Renovate, this highset timber home was a three bedroom one bathroom dwelling with next to no storage. This young family simply had no room to move but up! Now upon completion the house features five (5) bedrooms and two (2) and a half bathrooms which has not only transformed but also added significant value to the home.
