Home alterations

Kellyville, NSW

About the client

Our client recently moved into a new home after uniting two families. They were now a large family of seven which includes one child with special needs.

The challenge

While the house this family purchased was considerable in size, it was still short one bedroom. Also, the home needed to be modified to cater for wheel chair access and facilities.

The solution

The first thing that needed to be fixed was the sleeping arrangements. We worked with the family to ensure the designs were well thought out in how we could add a new bedroom to the home within the existing footprint. Our biggest aim when doing any additions is to make it blend in to look as though it had always been there.

Upstairs featured a large rumpus room which we were able to convert to a bedroom while still leaving space at the top landing for ample hallway access to the other rooms. While we were working upstairs, we also demolished a poorly designed built in wardrobe in another bedroom to increased the usable space for this lucky bedroom occupant.

With the bedrooms sorted, we went to work on the access to the downstairs bathroom for wheelchair access. The existing entrance for this room was only a 720mm door with floor to ceiling tiles internally. In order to make this access easy we opted for a 920mm door replacement. By retaining the existing tiling on the wall we were able to keep the budget down. It was a bit tricky, but we managed to salvage all wall tiles without a crack which was testament to our experienced team.

The previous owner had renovated the downstairs bathroom and tiled over the original tiles. This created a stepped entry which was difficult to negotiate a wheelchair. We removed a row of tiles at the entry and provided a short ramped entry to increase usability for our client.

With a space for everyone, this family now all live happily ever after in their new home.

Peace of mind for me was critical. I can go to sleep at night knowing its been done properly and there's not going to be problems later on. We built the trust with Brian very early on so we knew we could trust him to give us honest input and solutions.

Excel and the team were very helpful in listening and the quality of workmanship was very high. This is the second time we've had building work done and there's no comparison between the original building work and what's been done by Excel. We have no hesitation to recommend Excel Tradeworks.

Four years and a different home later, Brian is still providing a truly excellent standard of customer care and quality of workmanship, making time to come out all the way to Balmain East, just before Christmas and at relatively short notice. So, thanks once again Brian for a great job so well done.
