The Build

After 2.5 years of planning we are building a standard 2 level home on a section in Mangere Bridge.  Cladded with black brick & white weatherboard, the house will be made up of a double garage, large entertaining kitchen & living area that opens out to a deck showered in Sun.  It’s a 5 bedroom home, which we will start off with only 4 rooms (we’ll explain more about this later) and 3 spacious bathrooms.  All up it is designed so that all the living & entertaining happens downstairs in the open flow spaces and rest and relaxation upstairs in the bedrooms.

A single story home was initially on the cards but with the space of the property and council regulations, we had to go up which gave us a few extra rooms to create to maximising space as much as possible.  Because of this we have be lucky enough to add in a Scullery, extra bathroom, homework area and additional living room upstairs as well as lots of storage

We started the build in June 2017 and were in by Dec 2017 – just in time for our girls 1st birthday.  Now we’re working on adding the final touches and working on the landscaping.
