This home addition to a small terrace house in Leichhardt connected to the remaining home after the rear of the house had been totally destroyed by fire.
The addition was built to the boundary using the James Hardie HardieSmart boundary wall system. Our client wanted sunlight to stream throughout the home, the high cathedral style ceiling making the space feel opulent with plenty of light.
Double glazed western red cedar windows at 2400mm high and doors (French and bi-folds). The high-level glazing and skylights ensure excellent natural light to the interior.
“Matt did the design and then the build, and I couldn’t be happier”
Underfloor ducted air-conditioning was fitted throughout.
The kitchen was finished off with spotted gum hardwood benchtops in the kitchen.
The breakfast bench was built on wheels so it can be wheeled back to the external wall when more space is required for the living room. An external laundry saves on internal floor space.
Hardwood sliding barn door style doors for the new bathroom and bedroom coming off the hallway.
Hardwood spotted gum decking wraps around from the side entry to the rear of the home for easy access to the backyard.
Hardwood shiplap cladding was used to the rear elevation.
“Every step of the way Matt was considerate and clear with me. He got the plans through the notoriously difficult Inner West Council DA process without any hiccups”.
