Case Studies

Carnell Close Bungendore

This unique shaped block that got wider as it moved towards the back of the site provided a challenge that was brilliantly overcome by the custom design process. Walking into the home you are met by the impressive kitchen and dining space with a high low pitch cathedral ceiling that lowers over a cosy family room space connected to the alfresco area. The home then has two wings at opposing angles at either side of the main living area. One wing has a double depth garage to meet the owners requirements, as well as the master suite with an ensuite completed with a double vanity and dual showerheads. The other wing has a further 3 bedrooms and north facing rumpus room, as well as an spacious main bathroom and laundry. The home was completed within the client’s budget of $620,000.

Weatherstone Circuit Googong

Balancing a clients design preferences with their budget is something that we always do with our clients and this home is no exception. It is essential to always consider getting as much winter sun into a home and we were able to achieve this with their design but placing the main living area at the rear of the home. When walking into the main entrance which leads down a wide entrance hall to that main living area, a right turn will take you to 3 bedrooms with a main bathroom. To your left as you pass the garage is a theatre room and then the master bedroom which is adjacent to the main living area and also capturing the northern aspect. Completed with primarily our bronze level of inclusions, this home shows how you can achieve an excellent inclusions list with complimentary colour selections while working within a budget, which for this project was $425,000.
