Case Study – McKinstry Ave
Location: Mangere, Auckland
Contactor: MMB Builders Ltd
Project Timeline: 10 Weeks
Category: New Builds
The Mission: To take an outdated 1970’s home with its classic but original mustard yellow wallpaper, brown vinyl flooring, mustard coloured carpet and yellow stained patterned glass panels (to name a few) and give it a complete new refreshed look and feel to the home. This home is a 3-bedroom home with 1 office, internal garage and 2 storeys. We took an existing single garage with carport and demolished the site and undertook extensive earthworks to complete the new public drainage system required.
We ripped out all the flooring within the home and upgraded the flooring to new plush carpet through all the rooms, staircases, hallways and lunge and new laminate timber flooring for the kitchen, dining and laundry. New garage carpet added to the lower level internal garage.
We ripped out the old bathroom and toilet and upgraded both areas with new modern grey marble with white vein tiles half high tiles with new double slider shower, fittings and fixtures for both bathroom and toilet.
As the existing kitchen was fairly new, we added more space to the kitchen by removing some existing cabinetry and added a new stone top benchtop to blend in nicely with the wooden flooring with new ceramic benchtop.
We gave the home a new paint job on the exterior as well – from a pale peach colour to a new contemporary Resene Raven and Grey Friars colours.
New window treatment added with Dual Blinds installed right throughout the home, new joinery hardware, new lighting fixtures and update the old electrical circuit boards to a new circuit.
