Kiwi Bach Transformed into Modern Open Plan Home
The team at Smith & Sons Franklin completed this full renovation in the Orere Point area. The clients came to the Franklin team at the very beginning stages of their renovation & went through the entire DPC process (Design, Plan & Construct). The homeowners fell in love with this charming little beach house & told the team that they were looking to keep some of the original characteristics. The project consisted of renovating the existing home and extending certain spaces within the existing roofline.
The home was stripped right down to its bones & started from fresh. The home was re-cladded in James Hardie Axon Panels and painted in the colour Steel Grey from Resene. All new joinery is from the Vantage Residential Series in the colour Metro Coal Dust. As the property is located so close to the beach, the clients wanted to take full advantage of this; they enhanced their indoor-outdoor flow with a large timber deck and a lourve system was installed by the talented team at Outdoor Edge NZ.
The interior of the home was fully re-gibbed, plastered, painted, all new flooring and doors throughout. The heart of the home was outdated, so a new kitchen was installed and all new appliances. The new bathroom creates a more modern feel with all new fittings and fixtures. A new laundry space was formed with all new appliances also. A fire place was added in the open plan living area, to heat the home and make the space feel cosy and welcoming. What a transformation this was! Best of all the clients are super happy with the final outcome and can’t wait to show it off to their family and friends
