A Modern Twist – Rozelle

Rozelle – From 2 levels to 3!

Type Extension and renovation
Beds 4
Duration 10 months

The Brief

To expand the house and utilise the block of land to its capacity.

The Solution

Excavating under the house to create a new level, extending the 2 upper levels and a complete renovation throughout.

Being a corner block this opened up the opportunity to get the necessary excavation machinery in under the house and remove all the rock. Once the new slab was poured the extension process of the 2 upper levels commenced.

Bracing of the 3 storey high side brick walls was essential as we stripped all the existing roof frame and installed the steel portal frames. Following this, the new roof frame was completed which made it possible to start on the internal renovation work.

What the client said

We were very fortunate we went with MATTBUILD for our major renovation that included excavation under the house. There was no problem too big or too small for this team. There was continuous communication throughout, lots of initiative within the design brief and we could follow the project as it progressed with just a lovely bunch of dedicated people. We would highly recommend this tech savvy team for their professional attitude before, during and after the renovation.
