Successful Renovation at Archmillen Ave Pakuranga Heights

Successful Renovation at Archmillen Ave Pakuranga Heights
Before Photos, not great as the house was full. Full interior and exterior cosmetic renovation of 3 bedroom house in Pakuranga, completed by the Rodney team for one of our first ever renovation clients who only wanted to work with Mike and the team. The property has been inherited and retained as a rental and required a major over hall to bring it up to standard whilst keeping the costs as close to 10% of the properties value as possible. In the kitchen we removed the doors into the laundry and reinstated the opening to the hallway to open up the space and improve the flow from the front door to the rest of the property. All new quality cabinets with soft close runners & hinges, composite stone benchtops and tiles splashbacks to give a durable and modern finish. BEFORE AFTER The bathroom has been increased in size by moving the HWC outside and the layout improved by installing a large 1200 x 900 shower and moving the vanity away from below the window. BEFORE AFTER The rest of the interior has been fully repainted in a light neutral colour scheme and a durable plush cut pile carpet installed to complete the look. Outside we have washed and painted the exterior using a fresh white on the cladding and a contrasting dark grey on base boards and trims. A new and slightly larger deck has been added to give a functional outdoor entertaining space. We have the latest after photos on our video below.  ...

HOME RENOVATIONS AND BUILDERS

HOME RENOVATIONS AND BUILDERS
Renovating one’s own home gives the feeling of accomplishment and pride once the design is finished. But going through the details can be a bit daunting for most–renovation builders fulfil their tasks in maximizing their strengths and services for clients. The Boom of Home Improvement Home renovation falls under the bigger hat of home improvement. The industry has become the fastest growing retail sector in New Zealand with an increase of 60 percent from 2012–with an estimate of 30 percent of homes being renovated. The Certified Builders Association has seen a trend in expanding existing land and home space as opposed to purchasing new property. The reason being that there is apprehension of being able to move back in a residence. Extensive renovations are often made in bedrooms and bathrooms–sometimes with the addition of a garage. The demand of an upkeep of present houses comes in the midst of an increase in house prices in Auckland and surrounding areas. Renovations or Remodelling? Renovation and remodelling house procedures are both aesthetic changes to a home or structure. The difference between them is the extent to which the transformation takes place. Renovation focuses on the re-creation of a dilapidated space and often times, the pre-existing condition of the establishment is enough to be retained. Remodelling is not simply changing the surroundings or the decor but creating even the foundation of a home if necessary. This would include changing even the basic features of a room to make way for other additional components that would enhance it. Remodelling in a home is better for its functionality; from a designer and decorator’s perspective,...

Bathrooms from design to renovation

Bathrooms from design to renovation
No other space in your house will reflect your personality more than your bathroom. It is important that your bathroom reflects the best quality, workmanship and style that your budget can afford. Your bathroom is the one space in your home that can truly set your mood for the rest of the day. With this in mind, when it comes to home improvements there are a few more satisfying than renovating your bathroom. Many people believe they can take on home renovations by themselves however, spending the time and choosing an experienced designer and then contractors will repay you by making a tough project a truly positive experience. Legalities New Zealand has a strict building code and most renovations will need a building consent. Your designer will guide you and in most cases make the applications on your behalf, if they are required. Even if you don’t need building consent, the building work will still need to comply with the Building Code. Under the Building Act 2004, building work (relevant to alterations and renovations) which requires consent includes: Alterations, additions and structural repairs to existing buildings, for example, removing or changing structural load-bearing walls. In some cases, you will need consent to replace all wall linings at once as they may serve a structural purpose. Repairs to leaking buildings also require a consent as does the installation of insulation to existing external walls. The demolition of existing buildings and structures. The removal or relocation of existing buildings. Sitework, for example, earthworks for a new extension. The construction of decks where a person can fall more than 1.5 metres or...

This property was tired, very tired and desperately needed an injection of modern and style to bring it back to its best. Ramin and his team were asked to complete a full renovation on this house in Kirkbride Road, Mangere. The Kitchen  The kitchen was well past its’ best. An original from when the house was built, it had seen many a family meal and was outdated and impractical for family life today. There wasn’t enough storage space, the counter tops were small and it was peeling and flaking. Ramin’s result: A modern functioning kitchen with plenty of counter space and storage. New appliances and a funky splash of colour on the back wall brought this kitchen back to life.  Ramin stripped the old cracked lino and sanded and polished the native timber floorboards giving an easy to clean, durable flooring solution  great for a high traffic zone. Before After Before After The Laundry Another tired and worn out room. There was nothing inviting about the laundry and it felt small and depressing. The wash tub had suffered water damage over the years and the base was swollen. The walls were crying out for fresh paint. Ramins result:...
