Full Renovation in Massey
We completed a full transformation of this beautiful 1950’s character home in Massey west Auckland. Having just completed another full renovation we were delighted to hear from the owners at this address. The owners were related to our customers we had just finished working with and impressed with the renovation we completed for their family. The house was due for a facelift and it was having a few issues such as damp in the basement and leaking from the join in the conservatory roof.

We discussed design options and we put together a quote which included solutions for the issue of the damp basement and the leaking roof.

We were able to take the list of client wants and tailor the budget to make the biggest impact for re- sale. The home itself was a classic 1950’s style bungalow. We get quite excited to see these old homes, generally the structure is good and they have beautiful character. In this case the flooring was native matai, such a joy to find. Here is a before and after of the living room.                                                   Which areas to renovate? We recommend that the best areas to renovate if you want to add value, are the kitchen and bathroom. If you have the budget it’s worth adding quality fixtures with a neutral colour scheme to appeal to more buyers. Our clients went for a white embossed cabinetry with recessed handles and soft closure fittings with a 30 mm Granite bench-top.
