Eight years of life had lived between the walls of this Remuera home, and it was time for a breath of fresh air. To start, we replaced a large portion of existing plaster cladding with James Hardie Linea Weatherboards. This created clean lines and contrast, updating the exterior and transporting it to a new era of modernity. Large bi-fold doors were installed in the living area to attract the afternoon sun, with a brand new deck covering the previously unused land outside. Inside, we repainted, installed new carpet, stained old bamboo flooring and re-lacquered the kitchen creating a final picture of sophistication.
