Also started to prepare the river bank area by clearing all the existing planting and locating the services. Nice quite spot to enjoy the view.

The timber sitting on the truck is from The Big Red Shed at Summer Park, they are cleaned up rail way sleepers in which we use to frame the cellar.

The cellar is starting to look the part with the timber sleepers framing the cellar with lighting and paint it’s starting to get very exciting. The black unit on the wall is a special wine cellar conditioner from Euro Cave. This unit keeps the room at the right temperature for the perfect wine.

20170503_091231

The client had a ideas from the work we have completed in the New Farm Unit Renovation a few years ago and wanted to bring a slimier style to the salon.

20170503_091129 20170503_091149

All the joinery and shelving is a natural oak timber veneer, with the gloss white wall tiles on dark grout. Floor tiles are Dark Gray with a gray grout and black painted walls.

New Farm Apartment Renovation

So here we are week 4 of the New Farm apartment and the owners have gone away for 2 weeks to Bali. We thought we would provide you with some photos of how everything is going.  If you have any questions about what we do or how we do it, please don’t hesitate to contact us at www.blacksquareconstruction.com.au  and we will respond with the answers.

 

We discussed in our last post the false Ceiling, so here it is, battened and ready for plaster board to be installed. As well as constructing the new ceiling, we have been busy pulling down walls, reconstructing doorways and building pantries.

Over the next couple of weeks and months, we will be sharing with you the pictures of this new renovation, the difficulties we may experience, the resolution to these issues and any other interesting things that happen along the way.

Not every renovation is smooth sailing, we like to consider that every challenge we face is more experience that we gather. If you like what you see or would like to follow us and learn more then click here http://ow.ly/P0plC to get our Ebrochure and stay in touch with what we are up to.

New Farm Apartment Renovation

So here we are, week 2 of the New Farm apartment renovation and the demolishing has begun. The below picture is of the current ensuite complete with a bathtub/spa. The next picture is of the ensuite completely pulled out and ready to start sheeting the walls. The owners had a specific idea for this room, this was to remove the double basins and bath, create a bigger shower space and ensure there was ample storage in an overhead mirrored cabinet.

Moray St 8

We have been really happy with the progress of this room, the owners have kept the brief simple, straight forward square room with not a lot being put back in, the after pictures will be worth the wait. The picture below is the after demolish photo of the ensuite.

 Moray St 7

This below picture is of the old dining room, this is to be the new kitchen. You can see that there is no plumbing whatsoever in this space. As discussed in the first post on this renovation the owners did not use this space in their apartment, it was essentially dead space and they wanted to utilize it.

The plan for this space is to build a false wall 100mm deep to hide all the services, so that means the Electrics, the incoming hot and cold water, plus the waste water. If you look through this space to the outside balcony, the owners want to turn this space into their laundry. Currently the washing machine and dryer are housed in a cupboard in the main bathroom. We need to extend the plumbing and electrics to the outside balcony too.

This means those big black sliding doors will be removed and replaced with a sleek white French door.

These are the challenges we face at Black Square Construction, bold ideas that we assist in turning into possibilities. We like to think, nothing is beyond our capabilities to either arrange, coordinate or manage.

Moray St 6

This is a picture of the false wall we are building in the old dining room for the new kitchen. We have had to build this wall first before anything else, as the owners want to be able to get the kitchen company they had arranged to build the new kitchen in to do a check measure. The new kitchen will  take approximately 5-6 weeks to construct. Once the wall is finished and the old kitchen removed, we will be able to start on the false ceiling.

Moray St 5

False Ceiling? What? As this is an apartment all the ceilings are concrete which makes changing light fittings and installing fans incredibly difficult, so we will batten the roof, install plaster board and have a plasterer come in to square up the edges and sand the roof ready for painting.

Remember that nice shiny kitchen from the first blog, well this picture was taken at the start of the demolishing phase. Notice in this picture the big beige ugly electrical mains control box, believe it or not, this was hidden in a cupboard, unless you knew it was there, you wouldn’t have seen it, because we were pulling down this cupboard, we had to move the mains board and put it somewhere accessible, but also discrete. One of our other many talents at Black Square is sourcing materials to ensure when we are done everything looks and feels perfect. Once the new electrical box is in place, we will take a picture to give you an idea of what we mean.

Moray St 4

Over the next couple of weeks and months, we will be sharing with you the pictures of this new renovation, the difficulties we may experience, the resolution to these issues and any other interesting things that happen along the way.

Not every renovation is smooth sailing, we like to consider that every challenge we face is more experience that we gather.
