Hobart Extension: Winner 2015 HIA Awards Renovation/Addition Up To $250K

The client, a single retiree who has lived in this small weatherboard residence for many years, wanted to extend in order to create a bright and warm living area taking advantage of the northerly aspect and at the same time renovate the kitchen. The existing deck was not functional and rarely used.

To accomplish this task, MGArchitects Pty Ltd were engaged to design and Merlin Constructions were selected to construct the project. Merlin Constructions were involved from the early stages of the design, working closely with the project architects, providing advice on methodology and cost analyses so as to complete the project to the client’s limited budget.

The client took an overseas holiday whilst construction was in progress. As the scope of works included the demolition of the existing kitchen, it allowed the construction team to proceed in a timely manner. Construction was completed in time for the client’s return.
