Renovation Case Study – Turning a 1 Star Home into a 7 Star Home

How can you transform a draughty energy hungry house into an efficient home that is cheap to run and comfortable to live in all year ’round?

We helped one of our clients do exactly that and she has shared her story – click here to find out how she upgraded her home from a highly inefficient 1 star to a very efficient 7 star home.

Rather than do the usual knock down & rebuild, our clients decided to renovate their tired 2 storey, 4 bedroom brick veneer 1980’s home, to transform it into a beautiful, comfortable and energy efficient modern home.  Focusing first on the design, our clients worked closely with their designer to improve the layout of the home and maximise energy efficiency potential.  We were appointed to undertake the renovation works and bring the design to life.  If the home was to perform to its potential, the insulation, glazing and draught proofing needed to be done exceptionally well.  This is where our attention to detail and understanding of & commitment to energy smart building was invaluable.  The result – energy use slashed from 36kW a day average to a low 10 kW day average and very happy clients!

See here for some photos of the finished home.  Also, you can read our clients’ feedback on us and our work here.
