Two-storey home renovations

Jane Eyles-Bennett - Monday, February 05, 2018

White Cedar Drive, Castle Hill, NSW


Our client purchased this property specifically to do a major renovation and onsell it. Since there were quite a few structural changes required, she consulted a draughtsperson to complete the working drawings (for the builder/approvals etc.) and then worked in with us to provide the cosmetic touches and to pull the whole colour and materials side of things together - which most draughts-people don't want to get involved with.
 
Whether you're doing a 100% cosmetic renovation or a cosmetic/structural renovation - then a Renovation Action Plan will keep you well on track.

You'll get Interior Design advice from a fully qualified interior designer and a rough guide of how much each component of your renovation will cost you. This will ensure your renovation looks the best it can and helps you avoid nasty cost over-runs along the way.
