Home Renovations Newmarket


David and Amanda, Newmarket

Renovation to an existing Queenslander style home

David and Amanda are a professional, hardworking young couple. They engaged the services of Architect Trebilcock & Associates who referred David and Amanda to us.
The original house didn’t offer the couple the connection to large inner city rear garden they desired. They wanted more living space, a swimming pool and landscaped garden.

Budget: Approx. $200K

Duration: 4 Months

Year: 2014

  1. Sloping rear site with limited site access.
  2. Previous attempts at home renovation by previous owners needed to be rectified.
  3. Keep new works traditional and in keeping with the original house.
  4. Installation of a large 10m steel beam to create a cantilever to support a roof over operable corner bi-folding doors.
  5. Large and highly detailed joinery, doors and window.
On this project we carried out the project management of the works. Saving the client Architects fees and time.

With help from the owner we negotiated site access through the back of the property from an adjoining neighbour. Enabling a workable solution to overcome the limited access.

Enlisting the services of a highly reputable and professional joinery company RWD Joinery ensure all joinery was produced to the high degree detail specified by the architect. Ensuring the new renovated areas complemented the existing home.

With the use of City Hire we were able to use lifting devices in a confined space to install the cantilever beam.

Fully open plan living area which flows onto pool and landscaped entertainment area. Lush private resort style garden.

The clients were very happy with the recycled pine flooring that was installed in the newly created living area, it was a perfect match to the existing and came out of the RNA Showgrounds.

The clients ended up with a home that created a new lifestyle for them, one that enabled easy entertaining with friends and family.

Comments from clients family and friends: “What’s holding up the roof”.


“We couldn’t be happier with the renovation undertaken by Richard and his team. Richard is honest, professional and courteous and meticulous in his attention to detail. He kept in regular communication and always had time for our input. He suggested some great improvements as the project progressed, ensuring our renovation was the best possible. Thanks, RMW Built. We will definitely use you for our next project!” David and Amanda, Newmarket
