The Cottage

Merlin Constructions were approached to undertake this exciting project on a suburban inner-city heritage listed home. The design involved demolishing the existing, poorly constructed 1990s addition at the rear of the cottage and adding a modern, luxurious two-story addition to the front of the cottage.

Although based interstate, the client wanted to be involved with aspects of the construction. We worked together to ensure the client could be present at specific stages of the project as we transformed the West Hobart cottage.

Merlin utilised the skills of its employees by taking on the structural steel component of this project in house. We also constructed doors and windows within our warehouse. The finished project engages passive solar design principles and provides excellent thermal efficiency. The client could not be happier with the two-storey addition to their inner-city West Hobart charmer.
