McCarthy Hill

Role : Construction and Finishing
Date : 18 April 2020

This structure, which had numerous arches, was built on a valley. We made various suggestions to the client which included introducing a new master bedroom, grand pillars, a summer house and car port which we presented to the client in the form of 3D designs.

Project Overview

We delivered renovation and finishing work on an old incomplete 5-bedroom house. This building also had a second reception and terrace with a garage and pergola in the exterior. The scope of works included changing the shape and size of the windows and extending the bathroom area. We were also tasked with making changes to the carport and correcting the screeding work that had been carried out.

We faced several challenges as a result of the work carried out by the previous contractor. These challenges included sloping floors and a superstructure made from poor quality sandy blocks. In addition to this, there were exposed beams that needed to be addressed, some of the rooms were too small, there were insufficient bathrooms and too many entrances leading into the rear of the property which posed a security risk.

A remodeled, generously proportioned five-bedroom house which evolved to become a classic beauty.
