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.  ...
