Troy Leaman Building
Designed by Susanne Lindstrom-Wilson and built by Troy Leaman Building, this beautifully renovated home features exposed oregon-timber glulam beams and rafters, a stunning large balcony and a stylish stone-clad fireplace.
The clients wanted to transform their existing 90s Mediterranean-style double-storey property into a modern, open-plan home that would accommodate the needs of their growing family. It was also important the property highlight the breathtaking bushland views.
To achieve the clients’ requirements, the designer and builder worked in close collaboration to renovate the entire first floor and incorporate a new balcony. All of the wet areas were updated, while the ground-floor slab was extended to provide the kids with a spacious games room. The ground-floor walls and staircase were repositioned in order to give the home an inviting and open feel.
Renovations to the main bathroom, en suite, laundry, and kitchen were also completed to enhance the home’s contemporary style. Solar roof panels and BuilditEco foam cladding were installed to improve energy efficiency and reduce utility costs.
New BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) ratings were introduced a month prior to construction of the project commenced. Thorough research was completed to ensure the home complied with the local council’s updated requirements. Company director Troy Leaman always says “Nothing is a problem – we only have solutions.” Lindstrom-Wilson provided excellent advice and devised appropriate solutions to achieve a great result.
