As Sutherland Shire builders, we have completed a wide range of projects in the area. This home extension project took us 2 months and resulted in the clients having the extra family space they needed!
Being based in a BAL-FZ zone, this required us to use specific building materials to ensure the best fire resistance possible. The original brief from the client required us to extend the back of the house by 4m and add an additional back deck. Besides this, we were also required to create a new lounge/dining room and build a new staircase.
We used special modwood when building the deck, glass balustrade, and modern cladding all inline with Australian requirements for BAL-FZ zones. One of the defining features of the home extension was a massive glass sliding door that spans nearly the entire house. This really allowed for a free-flowing wide spacious outdoor veranda feel from the inside of the home.
A specific requirement from the client was that they didn’t want to interrupt the view from the property of the lovely surrounding bushlands. We accomplished this by using no posts or beams for the eve which creates a clean sophisticated look.
