Renovation / Addition up to $200k

Winner – Alexis Constructions: Kensington Park

The original 90’s home has been transformed to highlight the original timbers, visually open the space and bring fine detail to more contemporary new works and although this was primarily an internal refurbishment, an excellent job was made of restoring the external cedar windows. Detailed new timber floors are a standout feature and Alexis Construtions is to be congratulated on their excellent work.
