New Outdoor Living Area With Audio Automation

Full Internal & External Repain


This 30-year-old beauty was looking very tired and in desperate need of some internal and external works and additions to show her the respect she so deserved. Starting with the internal work, including hundreds of square meters of extensive preparation, the ceiling and wall features of this home were painted from top to bottom.

Existing cupboards in bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen were also modified to create shaker style faces (using existing cupboards) to ‘freshen’ up the look of these doors. Externally, a new patio extension has been implemented to join the two wings of the home creating a large, usable outdoor entertaining area, to make the most of the stunning ocean and backyard views.
