2018 is upon us and we're coming to the home stretch on this massive renovation. The whole team has come back with a renewed vigour to get the Hackett House to the finish line.
Now's the time when we're focusing on the finishing touches that make a renovation something special including extensive painting inside and out from the team at Blayden Painting. They put in the hard yards to get all the painting done over some very hot days and the result is fantastic.
It's all about the furnishings!
Doors & their handles
All the doors (did we mention there are SO MANY doors and handles in this house!!) have all been fitted, including sliding doors on the built in robes which are a really practical, space saving option.
Robes fitted with sliding doors
Who doesn't love a good appliance? 😃 The owners opted to go with all Bosch range appliances for the property as the brand has a great reputation for quality, longevity and great after sales customer service.
Benches, benches, benches
The kitchen benchtop has been installed along with all the vanity tops in the bathrooms. Check out the photos! They have come together so beautifully and really do add a little something special to these spaces.
Sinks & tapware
The owners opted to go with all matt black tapware and sinks - tying in with other furnishing including sink wastes. That's right, there's not a bit of chrome/brushed aluminium in sight!
Powerpoints & switches
They may not be exciting, but they are obviously important so the electrical powerpoints & switches have begun to be fitted off throughout the house.
The front porch & entrance have now been tiled and the balustrade installed - the street appeal is miles ahead of where it was before we started.
Carport & entertainment area roofing
Work has begun on building the roofing structure for the carport & entertainment area. It’s been a bit fiddly as the boys have had to work out how the structures fit together which allows for electrical wiring to be ‘hidden’ in some grooves (hence Matt has been involved) but the extra planning with absolutely be worth it for the final result.
Prep has been done for the garden with a sprinkler system installed & soil for new plants to be planted. It's not only going to look fantastic when it's done, but it's going to be easy for the new owners to maintain.
Roller door for carport installed
Again, not exciting stuff, but practical and very much feels like a finishing touch 😃
And that's where we're up to! Getting so close to the finish line it's incredible. The owners are even meeting with their real estate agent to start planning for getting the house on the market once we're done. What do you think? Like what you're seeing? If you're in the market in Canberra, remember to keep watching for more updates.
Here are some photos from this weeks work.
