Bunnings Renovation $750,000 – $1.5 million – GD Pringle Building Ltd


This much-loved 1970s home needed new life injected into it.

Generation next - FairfieldThe adult children were returning on a repeat basis, now with their own kids in tow, for family get-togethers. So began the season of transformation. After extensive engineering work, both in the groundworks and to the original structure, the new shape began to emerge.

Out went the dated floorplan with separate living spaces; in came a large open-plan living area for multi-generational enjoyment. A focal point is an alcove with raised built-in hearth and gas fire. Brick slips on the walls and a glass roof complete the picture. The upstairs main bedroom is connected through an expansive void. Skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows make great use of natural light. A further outdoor room forms a conservatory that serves as a threshold to the garden.

This area includes a barbecue and can be opened or screened off to respond to the seasonal changes in the garden. The original kitchen with inbuilt joinery has been carefully preserved, and a new island unit and cabinetry has been added. In its new guise, the four-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-living room address can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
