The building brief
Creating a dream home hadn’t got off to an easy start at all for our clients. Their 315m2 two-storey home is built in a lovely, new subdivision in Point Wells and, as such, there are covenants on the design. Our clients came to us stressed out with incomplete concept plans that were not accepted by the developers.
What we did
We worked closely with both our clients and design team on this build. We introduced them to our architect and quickly their concept plan had been redesigned with ideas they loved and had been accepted by subdivision developers.
We have created a beautiful family home using the highest quality of construction materials, while our very singular focus allowed us to stay within schedule and budget.
The stand-out feature of this family home is the large mezzanine floor that spans most of the 2nd storey and is finished by a glass balustrade, giving views to the downstairs area and gorgeous hardwood floors.
The four-bedroom family home has two bathrooms and two separate lounge areas. The long racking ceilings add drama, as do the beautiful macrocarpa stairs and stairwell.
The master bedroom on the second storey enjoys ocean views and each bedroom has high cathedral ceilings.
The north-west facing designer kitchen, scullery and dining areas are surrounded by a huge hardwood decking area, giving great indoor-outdoor flow. Skylights above the kitchen provide light and atmosphere throughout the day as the sun moves across the house.
For the exterior cladding, we have used vertical cedar cladding with board and batons.
What we liked
Building this home for our clients has been a thoroughly satisfying journey for all parties involved. A new home is the biggest investment most people are likely to make and it means an enormous amount. Working closely with the clients and architect we were all able to agree on a terrific house design, get a clear understanding of the planning and consent process and then through careful, thorough in-house project management, create the home our clients really wanted.
Building architectural homes is an opportunity to take your creativity and our craftsmanship to new heights.
Building our home with Edwards Builders was a fabulous experience. From the very beginning of the design process and evaluating the costs involved, right through to all the finishing touches, the team at Edwards Builders showed a high level of experience, impeccable communication, and most of all I can say, took the stress out of the building process for my husband and I. When we first began this adventure we were excited to have a lovely new home at the end... 8 months later we now have a stunning home that has exceeded our expectations and beyond! It takes a team of great contractors with reliability and integrity... these guys are it!
Thank you so much Beau and Nicki for helping us turn our dreams into reality!
