Take a look at this 100 year old house renovation in Hamilton East.


We thought that you might like to take a look at this exciting renovation project that Smartview Building have had the pleasure of working on recently in Hamilton East.

This stylish renovation has completely transformed this home – you would never guess this home was built 100 years ago by looking at it now.

Find out how they transformed this 100 year old home

A common problem many home owners experience when renovating older style homes in built-up inner city areas is the ‘room upon room’ layout. Limited yard space in tight city blocks can also restrict you from extending a property outwards, but these clever owners opted to use the existing roof void to create more living space.  This versatile new living area constructed in the roof space could be used for many different purposes such as an office space, kids bedroom, extra living room or additional storage – a great addition for a growing family.

A new staircase was built to access the new roof space level and we just love the open stairs – they allow light to flow through the home from one level to another. Opening up the space by removing an internal wall to connect the dining space was a great idea.  No more, room upon room dark rooms for this old house!

The success of this home renovation is the result of great teamwork between the home owners and Smartview Building. We hope that you have enjoyed the sneak preview of this beautifully renovated home.
