CLASSIC CHARACTER HOME EXTENSION AND RENOVATION
"FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE PROCESS TO THE COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT, THE AMEREX TEAM WAS PROFESSIONAL, FRIENDLY, CONSIDERATE AND CONSULTATIVE. STEVE TAKES PRIDE IN HIS PROJECTS AND DOESN’T ACCEPT SECOND BEST. WE ARE EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH OUR NEW HOME." - MARK
ADDING SPACE FOR A GROWING FAMILY
This classic Mt Lawley home had previously had a home extension done in the 1980s which had been poorly designed and was now very dated. Amerex have completely demolished and replaced this with a new open plan Living area with new Dining, Kitchen, another two children’s bedrooms, an extra Bathroom and a new Laundry.
STUNNING TILED DECK WITH FRENCH DOORS
A new elevated tiled deck was added at the rear, with French doors and matching casement windows across the length of the house at the rear flooding the new extensions with natural light.
WIDENING EXISTING ROOMS TO MAKE ROOMS LARGER
The front of the house was extended and renovated by widening existing rooms. This has been done so seamlessly, that you would never guess that this has taken place. This was achieved by replicating and retaining heritage features such as casement windows with matching awning, ornate cornice, polished jarrah floorboards throughout – seamlessly matching the old and new, ceiling roses, heritage architraves, and skirting, and re-purposed lead-light glass windows.
PERSONALISED DETAIL AND RECYCLED MATERIALS
This home was particularly unique in the level of personalised detail and recycled materials built in. For example, lead-light windows from a demolished part of the house were retained and re-used for the En-suite. The existing kitchen cupboards were re-purposed to be used in the Laundry, and a heritage-style door has been relocated to the new Laundry. The Owners had a small set of feature ceramic tiles with a sentimental story and journey attached to them, that were embedded into the fireplace surround.
FEATURING AND SHOWCASING JARRAH THROUGHOUT
The owners particularly love Western Australia’s native hard wood timber – jarrah – and this features extensively throughout the home. Jarrah floorboards are used throughout, and also jarrah vanities in the bathrooms, and jarrah cabinets in the kitchen and laundry.
