If you are happy where you are living and your home needs a bit of an update or modernising, then maybe its time to start thinking of renovating or adding onto your home.

You probably have lots of ideas about what you would like to do with your home, but may not be sure what is achievable.

Initially, it is always a good idea to do some research.  Start a scrap-book with all of your ideas and make notes about what you like and what you need.  Have a look at other houses in the area as well and see what they have done.

Once you have done a bit of research, the next step would be to contact a custom home builder, architect or draftsman and discuss your ideas with them.  They will advise you if your ideas are possible and suggest more options for you and will help put your ideas into fruition.

Have a look at this 1970’s cottage McGowan Homes transformed, a lot of people thought the house should have been demolished.  We turned it into a large architecturally designed modern family home. Before we started the renovation and addition to the home the block of land was unusable as it had a steep driveway and sloped yard.   We transferred the small cottage into a very large family friendly home.

When you are thinking of renovating you need to look beyond the surface and use your imagination.
