Scope of Works

This young family of 5 lived in a 100 sqm home on a 629 sqm section, they were rapidly outgrowing the home as their 3 boys grew but were unable to find a suitable home in the area. They loved their school and the community they lived in and didn’t want to compromise those things to find another home. They had plans designed and starting approaching builders, they were unsure if what they had designed would fit in their budget and wanted assurance they were going to over capitalise on their current home.

Their design was to add 60 sqm onto the home, giving them a 4th bedroom and remodelling the kitchen/dining area creating new lounge and laundry area plus a new access to the home. Adding great indoor/outdoor flow with the new deck out onto the sunny garden was a must for three busy young children.

Challenges

Budget is always a challenge in these jobs, the client only ever has so much to spend but also knows what they require.

Another challenge was they remained living in the home for the majority of the project, and even though there was clear separation with work areas and access the youngest child was 18 months old and was home most of the time. Being mindful for this little one, and the two older siblings, was paramount.

Highlights

Seeing a 100sqm bungalow get a new lease of life! Working with a young professional couple who were keen to see their home’s life extended for the duration of their children’s upbringing.

Budget Range

$200,000 - $300,000

On a good recommendation we contacted Blue Summit regarding an extension to our 80 year old bungalow. From our first meeting with Miranda and then Michael we felt completely at ease with them. They asked the right questions, went through the deliverables and contract process with us.  Their pro activeness, professionalism, thorough and practical approach immediately put us at ease.

This flowed through to the rest of the Blue Summit team. They were always great to deal with and a pleasure to have the guys working on our house (we were living in there with young children for a good portion of the build). The quality of the workmanship was outstanding. We couldn't be happy with our 'new' home and the experience we have had with Blue Summit. We definitely recommend them.
