A Classic Australian Home Extension

Date: Jan 15, 2019
Category: Home Renovation

Nestled in the South of Sydney, this existing home in Gymea Bay was a pleasure to revamp and extend!

The owners of this property had a clear vision and provided us with detailed information on what they wanted. This insight helps us to create and deliver our clients exactly what they envision.


The Home Extension Brief – 

The brief was to extend the existing house and keep it a single level. This home extension was to help give the family a more freer flowing home. By carefully analysing the available space we were able to deliver an outstanding end result.


The Home Extension Solution –  

At MATTBUILD we are professional builders. We take the time to understanding your specific requests and design briefs. We began this home extension by extending both the side and back of the house. This required excavation and concrete fundamental staging. Whilst this took place, we were able to work on the rear extension and start the interior renovation works. As the clients were moved out for the duration of the build, this handed us a prime opportunity to attack the project as a whole and minimise the construction time by approx. 4 weeks.



Stand-Out  Features –

At MATTBUILD we love adding in incredible features to homes to really add an extra level of sophistication and style. This helps to create homes that have a completely new atmosphere and feeling. The timber floors run from the end of the hall to the back Merbau deck. The deck overlooks the pool to enhance and create a feeling of space as required by the original brief. The carefully selected building materials for this project came together neatly to create a unique modern home.


Key Details:

  • Large louvre window galleries on the back wall for great air crossflow
  • Jarrah timber flooring
  • Gas fireplace
  • Large bifold doors and windows to open out on deck/pool area
  • Recycled timber sliding barn door on black track

Once we completed this project, our clients said;

“We would highly recommend MATTBUILD to anyone planning any building works. The entire process from the initial meeting to completion of the build was conducted professionally. Communication from the whole team was outstanding.”
