Project description: An interior and exterior renovation
Duration: 4 months
When Auckland renovation specialist MJ Poortoossi was contacted by the owners of this lovely character home in Epsom, his customers were initially interested in renovating one of their bathrooms. After discussing their ideas with MJ, they realised that the Refresh process would allow them to update multiple areas of their home at once. They decided to include work on their second bathroom, the carport roof, a pathway that led to a window, as well as a few odd jobs around the house.
After developing a thorough understanding of his client’s requirements, MJ converted their ideas into a design. He then presented his clients with the design, ensuring it met their budget, time requirements and taste. With their signed approval, MJ and his team then began working on the property - ensuring all necessary consents were taken care of and approved.
MJ and his team quickly discovered that the bathroom flooring was rotting, and promptly replaced it. The bathrooms were completely stripped of their original models and decor before receiving complete makeovers; including new tiling, paint and models.
Outside, MJ’s team replaced the customers’ garage roof, as well as a rusted gutter. The brick pathway, which led to one of the home’s windows, was redirected to the front steps of the house. A mix of repurposed and new bricks were used to achieve this - carefully selected by MJ and his team so as to achieve an aesthetic that would suit the appearance of the property.
Within four months of work, the homeowners were able to show off their newly renovated property to their friends and family. Their bathrooms are now modern gems within a classic exterior. On the outside, their redirected pathway offers year-round functionality, while their new carport roof will last for years to come. Looking forward, they hope to eventually carry out additional restoration work and interior painting, through Refresh.
