Happy Easter from Dowling Homes

Take a look at this month’s project – see why we love what we do!

This month is all about our new project at Semaphore Park. It’s just beautiful, and it’s positively zooming along!

Watch all our videos to see –

How do we get a pool over a house? Slowly and carefully! Watch this delicate operation on our Facebook Page.

We know how much you love floorplans, so we’ve included that too!

Dowling Homes wish you a Happy Easter

Semaphore Park 1 – watch what was there before

Watch Kym talk you through the space we’re adding to this lovely old villa down by the sea.

Luxe kitchen with butler’s pantry, bathroom, powder room with outdoor access from the pool, en suite, walk through dressing room and doors to open the back wall out to the all weather al fresco.



Semaphore Park 2 – first there’s the demolition.

We’re romping through the demolition. Internal walls are down, ceilings are out and floors are coming up. May look scarey, but no need to worry – we do it all the time, and we’re good at it.

Watch what’s being removed. Bathroom, laundry kitchen, dining – that’s all got to go!

Semaphore Park 3 – now the underfloor heating’s being installed.

Have you been thinking about underfloor heating? Want to know what it looks like?

Have a look at this electric system – it sits below the concrete surface radiating a very gentle heat.



Semaphore Park 4 – now the polished concrete slab’s been poured

Watch Kym describe the process for this polished concrete slab. The colour is “smoke” and the fine grind will give a lightly sprinkled “salt and pepper” effect. Later on, when it’s had it’s final grind and seal, we’ll show you the beautiful smooth, shiny floor.
