…….Stay tuned for the next summary with all that is happening on this construction site…
Above is the site set out.
The completed family home has four bedrooms with separate office and children’s playroom, and a large master bedroom with double ensuite and separate walk in robe. There is a separate workshop and a media room. The house has three bathrooms in total. There is also a wonderful deck at the rear of the property to take advantage of views and to enhance entertaining, along with a front deck to enjoy in winter overlooking bush reserve.
Above is the house frame completed and ready for the roof.
The clients created the first draft of the design to take into account their family’s needs and the layout of the land. Peter then enhanced and drew up revised plans and quote. The plans were once again reviewed taking into account the client’s discussions with Peter and their evolutionary requirements.
Once the plans and quote were finalised, the build started. The build of this two storey house was completed in 6 months, including the Christmas break and a lot of wet weather.
Peter only used the best materials, including a completely built on-site cypress frame for termite resistance. The clients have magnificent solid 200mm square posts which enhance the look and presence of their house on the front and rear decks.
Above is the rear deck ready for hand rails and oiling.
The home has nine foot ceilings, full ducted air-con, custom shelving in their bedroom robes and pantry. The kitchen is a site to behold with wonderful Caesar-stone bench tops, chef’s standard Westinghouse appliances, and a very functional and neat layout. The home has energy efficient lighting throughout, and each room meets its function well.
Peter and his sub-contractors are extremely professional and very good at what they do! The outcome the clients got for their home is an indicator of Peter and his sub-contractors capabilities, skill and experience. The clients received their wonderful functional home in a timeframe which met exactly with their requirement. And according to the clients, Peter went over and above to achieve their wonderful home.
This was the original house. The owners’ requirements for the renovations were to provide larger bedrooms for their children, add on a front and back deck, and add a carport. As part of the renovations the owners also moved the laundry upstairs and added two toilets. At a later stage the flat roof covering the front entry way was replaced with a high pavilion style roof (the old roof was removed during the first build and the new pavilion roof was added later). Peter replaced all of the existing roofing during the process, as well as the existing patio ceiling, to lift the whole look of their home.
The owners designed the majority of the build before Peter was engaged, however Peter recommended a few changes along the way and simplified the owners’ design. Peter’s suggestions included the carport, which the owners originally had as a free standing cover. Also Peter’s idea to extend the existing roof trusses straight out, was a great idea the owners thanked him for.
Peter recommended a lot of the materials and was always mindful of low maintenance products which the owners really appreciated.
This photo is at the completion of the renovations. The owners say the build process was very smooth and efficient, and Peter was very helpful and easy to work/deal with. The extensions have made their home more comfortable to live in and the new decks are thoroughly enjoyed in the warmer months. The renovations have also made their home aesthetically pleasing from the outside. The family are very happy with the results.
The client had two main priorities – maximizing their huge block of land at Elimbah with a house which would cater for their 6 children and making the outdoors seem to come inside. This was readily achieved using Peter’s expertise and creativity. Peter built a 7 bedroom, 3 bathroom and 3 separate living area home. This allowed everyone to have their own space, but also allowed the client plenty of room for the pool, shed and boys toys.
The clients had walked past a vacant block overlooking the beautiful Moreton Bay many times and had thought what a wonderful spot for their dream home. They were fortunate enough to eventually purchase it and as they were living overseas they needed an experienced and knowledgeable builder to create their new family home in an established area. They contracted Peter and were extremely happy with the result. The master bedroom, kitchen and living area all have magnificent views of the bay. The four other bedrooms are of a great size and have lots of light due to the high ceilings throughout the home.
This project was designed and managed whilst the owners resided overseas. Some may consider this a daunting prospect, however, the clients expectations were exceeded by the ease in which Peter communicated with them. Nothing was too much trouble, their questions where always answered concisely and concerns alleviated with Peter’s knowledge and expertise. Upon returning home they found the build was on schedule and were impressed with the way in which their block was kept neat & tidy as Peter was building in an established area and had neighbours to consider. The access to the block wasn’t easy either, yet Peter managed this aspect well.
This home was specifically designed around the Moreton Bay views. Upon entering the home you are drawn to the kitchen which is the centre point of the home and has great views over the bay. The large family are looking forward to spending their time back in Australia enjoying their new home. They say that even though they were oversea, Peter made their built very easy and enjoyable.
This home was specifically designed for the customer’s needs. The main goal was to have their caravan under cover with easy access to the road. Nearing retirement the couple also needed a low maintenance home. This was achieved by using rendered brick work and a Colorbond roof. The alfresco which leads off the spacious family/kitchen area was screened to stop insects. This allows the owners to have lazy afternoons overlooking the golf course. The large custom built media room leads off the living area also. This beautiful home allows the owners to live the entertainer’s lifestyle when home.
The client’s specific requirements were to fit their caravan under cover and to maximize the golf course views. The centralized kitchen allows this to happen. The designer kitchen overlooks the family/dining room area. This allows views through the large stacker doors to the alfresco, backyard and golf course. The extra bedrooms were separated from the master suite. This allows guests to stay over in a separate section of the house with their own bathroom.
This house has been designed for the client’s future. This will be their retirement home and a base for their future travels. But a perfect home until then and also their home sweet home when they return from travels. The lady client designed this amazing ensuite (pictured above) to give the true resort feel. They are extremely happy with their breathtaking new home.
This modern 2 storey home has been designed for a growing family living on the beautiful Sunshine Coast near the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital. This amazing home has four bedrooms, a media room and bathrooms upstairs and a large open plan living area downstairs that leads onto an alfresco area that overlooks the sparkling pool. The children’s play room leads off the main living area and they are able to keep all their toys close by, but mum can close the doors if entertaining guests.
The family wanted an earthy modern home with lots of light and beautiful timber floors and posts and was designed to suit the growing family’s needs. With this in mind, Peter utilised the flat corner block to its utmost to achieve the best possible cooling from the afternoon sea breezes. He also managed to design an upper front patio that has views to the nearby canals. With all the bedrooms nearby the master suite, it was important to the clients that if the children were to wake during the night they would be heard.
The clients were heavily involved in their home design and felt very comfortable raising any questions they had during the build.
