MATTBUILD had a fantastic time renovating and extending this beautiful home in Cronulla, Sydney.

At MATTBUILD, we are home extension and home renovation professionals. This classic coastal beach house with views of the ocean presented us with a truly brilliant opportunity. We were eager to expand the home and add to the relaxed, beachside vibe. Based in the south of Sydney, this project was an absolute treat from beginning to end!

For this home extension we had two primary objectives. Firstly, to maximise the property space and make the most of the homes position. The second, for the home to act as the perfect parents retreat.

To achieve these objectives we knew that strategic planning would be crucial. At MATTBUILD, we believe in working closely with our clients. We know that the key to building success is to establish close partnerships with all parties involved in the project. It was a pleasure working alongside the owners on this job to deliver them their dream beach home.

A Bit About The Home Renovation – 

MATTBUILD are committed to building your dream home!

We are top quality builders with years of building experience. At MATTBUILD, we like to establish close partnerships with our clients. This allows us complete transparency in our work and in the end helps to deliver exceptional home renovations. We strongly believe that the key to building success is open and honest communication.

For this home renovation, we were asked to remodel the family home. The home needed to provide both parents and the children with their own living spaces. The plan was to capture the ocean views from the combined bedroom / living room verandah. The brief also required us to incorporate a study, walk in wardrobe and ensuite for the master bedroom.


At MATTBUILD, we always carefully plan each project. This project begun by completely stripping the roof. This allows us to be able to build off the external walls and enabled us to double the existing area of the house. Next we set the large glass windows in the bedroom and installed the verandah bifold doors. This home extension consisted of timber frame construction with horizontal cladding to the exterior walls and a Colorbond roof to compliment the beach theme. Precise time management, open communication and strategic planning enabled us to deliver our clients their dream beach home!

Attention To Detail Is Crucial To Home Renovation Success – 

MATTBUILD are Sydney’s trusted builders. We pay attention to the detail and this project was no exception. As a part of common practice we carefully evaluate all existing properties prior to project commencement. This evaluation helps to paint a clear picture on the existing property and to highlight what building materials were originally used. This projects v-joint timber panel ceilings were a stand out feature as they worked perfectly with the beach house feeling. The travertine tiles on the verandah also provide an excellent contrast to the internal flooring of Australian mixed hardwood. This entire home renovation and extension came together beautifully!
