Jane Eyles-Bennett - Monday, July 17, 2017

The kitchen and living spaces are typically the hub of your house; and whether the others in the 'hub' are helping or just watching, it’s often where you'll connect and bond after a day at the office or school. Most people prefer an open plan layout for this reason; simply to fit all the people who want to congregate there. Since it's such a draw card; it needs to not only function well, but all look great too. (Read More)

See what some simple but very clever changes can do to a property? Total cost to renovate the exterior of this property was $37,150 (paying professionals - ie: no DIY) including rendering the whole house, painting, building work (window slats + entry steps), driveway, new front fence (not seen in images) and landscaping. As you can see, doing the right KEY things to your property can transform it in ways you may never imagine (I don't think this client did!).
 
Simple simple simple. Inexpensive. Clever. Transformed! Total internal renovations costs were $13,600 (for flooring, kitchen 'trick up', repairs, lighting and painting) plus $5,500 for staging and cleaning.

All interior and exterior renovation work took approx 7 weeks.
