    If your family is growing and your current home is starting to feel a little cramped or is not maximising your comfort and meeting your needs, maybe it is time to think about renovating. When you consider the cost and stress of moving, renovating is a great alternative.

    Whether a large renovation is in order, or an upgrade to smarten things up in the way your home flows from room to room, Cameron can point you in the right direction and suggest upgrades that you may not have even considered.

    Renovating your existing home is a great alternative to moving. If you love your current location, you know the neighbourhood and are comfortable where you are, perhaps adding a family room or moving around some rooms to maximise ‘liveability’ will give your existing home a new lease of life for your family needs.

    An exterior upgrade can significantly improve the street appeal of your home. Over the last 20 years many design ‘fashions’ have come and gone. Sometimes a few minor changes can erase those years and add a modern freshness to the otherwise solid home. Extending your outdoor area can enhance your enjoyment of summer entertainment with friends and family. Our beautiful Queensland climate can be enjoyed for many months given a well designed deck or pavilion. The family can enjoy the pool with shade areas to relax and socialise.

    Another aspect of renovating is adding to the value of your property. Real estate agents will all agree that a well designed renovation will improve the saleability of your home.

    If your home was built a few years ago, some important points to consider will be whether there is any asbestos in the structure, the electrical and plumbing layout will need to be looked at, as well as boundary limits.

    Cameron will be happy to come and look at your current property and see the possibilities that will enhance your lifestyle, as well as guide you to Council building regulations and current government guidelines that you will need to adhere to.

    Remember, a well designed renovation will be your first step in the one of the biggest investments in your life – your family home.
