This much loved home has been in our clients’ family for three generations. Now completely renovated, it has been transformed ready for the next chapter in its story – a beautiful & comfortable home, perfect for a young family with two active kids and Walter the dog.
When our clients came to us, they had two key objectives – to modernise their home and to reduce their budget busting energy costs (their previous winter quarter bill was over $2,000!). Their existing home had more than enough space but the existing floorplan didn’t use it efficiently. So rather than extending the home, all that was needed was a creative review of the floorplan by Gruen Eco Design. By simply moving internal walls, Gruen separated the front room from the kitchen to become a formal lounge room and created a 4th bedroom, a new generously sized pantry & laundry and a separate linen / storage room. You can see this clever thinking in the before & after floorplans below.
Also, with 3 straight forward improvements that we incorporated into the building works the home has been transformed from a 1* (Low Efficiency) home to a 7* (High Efficiency) home [Victorian Residential Efficiency Scorecard]. Look out for our video explaining how we did that! It’s coming soon.
