By Jan Dowling April 3rd, 2016. Comments Off on How To Get Fabulous Outdoors With A Home Extension

Imagine stepping out of your new living and dining area straight onto 130sqm of Spotted Gum decking, which wraps around a fabulous pool and sauna. The owners of this Grange home don’t need to use their imagination – they can see exactly how their fabulous home extension will look, thanks to our 3D design.

To put this in perspective, here’s what it looks like now:

It’s about to be transformed front, side and back.

Dream home extension

Got a big home but longing for a fabulous outdoor entertaining space?

This gorgeous home is about to be transformed into an entertainer’s paradise, with a huge upper storey extension, fabulous outdoor entertaining space, and a total exterior makeover. You won’t believe what we’ve got planned…

Maybe your interior spaces aren’t quite right for how you want to live? Watch what’s about to happen at Grange and reimagine the possibilities for your home.

The Entertainer’s Dream

One problem with this house is the lack of entertaining space outside. We’re solving that by creating a stunning alfresco. Stacker doors are the perfect addition to this home extension, letting the owners open the rear out to one massive, fabulous outdoor space complete with pool house and sauna.

And the icing on the cake? It will be practically covered in hardwood decking, which has been chosen to grey naturally over time. Very on-trend!

More space up, down and out

Of course, it doesn’t stop there. We’re adding extra living downstairs and even more space upstairs by extending the upper storey right across the side of home. Soon the owners will have a private balcony from their upstairs master suite– imagine sipping wine and watching the sunset – glorious! AND we’re transforming the whole exterior.

Take a look at the 3D design:

Here’s what it looks like now:

You can’t deny this house is beautiful, but it’s very dated. That’s why we’re getting rid of the 80’s brickwork look, rendering the whole property and repainting the woodwork.

Create The Perfect Outdoor Room

A relaxing, inspiring and fabulous outdoors has become an essential inclusion in Australian homes. And a permanent weatherproof structure, like the one we’re about to build at Grange, is a superb way to create an indoor-outdoor environment that adds value to your property AND your lifestyle. Include all the essentials for a serious entertaining space: a fully appointed kitchen, gas fire, sofas, and even a flat screen TV! The result is an outdoor space that works exactly as you imagined.
