Project 12 – A Neglected 1970s House Becomes a Young Buyer’s First Home

When we purchased this unkempt 3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom house, I was confident it could be transformed into a beautiful home without breaking the bank.

The potential was there, hidden beneath overgrown weeds and abandoned tree trunks infested with white ants.

But we certainly had our work cut out for us!

First on the agenda: reclaiming the outdoor spaces by mowing down the weeds and hauling away those giant tree trunks.

Then came the kitchen.

It was out with the old, filthy cabinets, and in with a fresh, functional layout.

We installed new white cabinetry, modern appliances and luxury stone benches.

We even added a full height pantry, where previously there had been none.

With a little brainstorming magic, we conjured up an indoor eating space, despite the challenge of having two doorways nearby, and no dedicated dining room in the home.

Our simple solution was to install a sleek drop-leaf table, that could be easily tucked away for access to outdoor entertaining.

Keeping costs down was paramount, so we retained the bathroom & laundry tiling, whilst ensuring every surface was sparkling clean.

New carpet was laid in the three spacious bedrooms.

This added a sense of luxury and homeliness to the relaxation spaces.

Renovating Made Easy

We installed new vinyl flooring throughout the high-traffic areas, to combine aesthetics with liveability and functionality.

Once the walls, ceilings, doors, door frames & skirting boards were painted in fresh, modern whites, this “brand new” 70’s home was able to begin its new chapter of life!
