In the first video, we showed you what the house looked like before demolition, and described the scope of the home extension our team’s doing here – this one’s having a beautiful polished concrete floor with the added luxury of underfloor heating.


Semaphore Park Home Extensions Demolition

We’re romping through the demolition here.  Internal walls are down, ceilings are out and floors are coming up.


We’ll be adding a new bathroom, en suite, walk in robe, separate toilet, laundry, kitchen, walk in pantry, dining, living area and a fabulous al fresco that can be enjoyed all year-round.

Here’s a transcription of this video:

Hi everyone. Kym Dowling here from Dowling Homes and welcome back to Semaphore Park – one of our new projects for the year.

Our previous video showed the nature of the job.  I did a description of what would actually be happening.

This is now day three of demolition and as you can see there’s lots of material that’s been removed. And what we’re continuing to do is remove some inside walls and this whole floor area. There was an existing bathroom and laundry and kitchen here –  that’s all going to go.

This is the internal part of the demolition phase of our Semaphore project and unlike most lean-to’s that have a single brick external wall or even a lightweight wall, this project, the actual lean-to walls on either side are double brick. So why pull it down when you can actually use what’s there?  So a bit of a saving for the owners of course, in that all we need to do is top the walls and we’ll join the extension onto the rear.  So this wall here will be going.  We’re going to take up the old concrete slab and tiles and the new build which is going to be going out the back about 9 metres will be a polished concrete slab with underfloor heating,  and that’s all going to be brought up to this main floor level so there’s no stepping down.  So that’s going to give a fantastic look.

Added to that, the polished concrete is going to extend out onto a 4 metre al fresco as well.  So super job and we’re really looking forward to cracking into it.

We’ll keep you up to date with some more video footage.
