Redland Bay QLD

Andrew and Caryl were not looking to sell. They bought their plot of land and built their forever home in the bayside area of Redland Bay, just south of Brisbane, 20 years ago.

Andrew’s business suffered a huge financial hit which meant he had to close the company and both Andrew and Caryl have had to work around the clock to try pay off the debt repayments. Close friends of Andrew and Caryl have stepped in to help and contributed financially to be able to carry out renovations, which otherwise they would not have been able to afford. The home has not had any updates in some time and is looking tired and dated. For the couple to achieve the highest price possible, which will hopefully save them from bankruptcy, the home needs some life breathed back into it, on a very tight budget.

Exterior - Before

Dennis knows how important it is in Queensland to have space outside to gather and entertain. Dennis freshened up the decking area with a new coat of paint and created an outdoor kitchen on the front balcony. Dennis built a wall and tiled it with Beaumonts Majorca Heritage White Matt to create a splashback for the new BBQ, complete with a fridge. The layout of the balcony was designed to ensure there was good connection between the indoors and outdoors.

The staircase from the balcony to the backyard was replaced and the path to the entertaining area at the back of the house was created using large steppingstones as a quick and cost effective solution. At the back of the house, we created a more inviting entertaining space, with new plants and outdoor furniture.

This home has an upside-down layout, with the bedrooms on the ground floor and the living space on the first floor. Given the small budget to work with the priority inside the house was to add value in the kitchen and living space with smart design choices.

The kitchen cabinets and work bench were resurfaced with a new colour, which gave the kitchen an affordable facelift. The cabinets were finished off with new handles and the appliances updated with new to give a more modern vibe. We replaced the existing shelving with overhead cabinets which increased the amount of storage space in the kitchen for a small cost.

The area which offered the most potential to add value was the open plan living area. This was a huge space which allowed for an additional living space to be created by installing a new wall which divide the space.
