Building a new extension

We loved our house from the first time we went through, but it really didn't have enough living space. We have worked on improving the layout of the home and increasing the living area of the home to create a modern and more pleasant layout to the home. We are really proud of how the job has turned out and we wanted to share some of the details of how the extension and layout changes where designed and constructed. This blog has some of the photos of our extension as well as tips that we have learnt along the journey,.

As well as benefits of aesthetic appeal, sustainability and durability, coloured stones set in geometric patterns can bring some exciting benefits to your landscaping. A well-paved driveway, patio or walkway not only enhances the functionality of your outdoor space but also adds to the overall beauty of your entire home. Seeing that a beautiful landscape serves a great purpose for personal indulgence and entertaining, brick paving truly offers huge drawcards and more so when installed by a qualified professional. Here are the unique benefits you stand to gain from brick paving. 


In addition to an easy installation process, using brick in your landscaping can smash your paving budget. While paving with bricks may cost slightly more upfront compared to concrete and other paving materials, you will save a lot more in the long run. Considering longevity, minimal maintenance, easy repairs and even possibilities of recycling bricks for other construction projects, paving with brick is an easy choice to make when it comes to affordability. 


A huge benefit of brick paving is that it offers design flexibility and beautiful aesthetics that you can hardly achieve with other materials. There is something about brick that catches the eye. It's earthy, has a natural appearance, and is symmetrical, versatile, sturdy and timeless. Bricks are also able to retain their natural red, brown and beige hues, adding warmth to your landscape for years to come. Brick pavers are modelled to different shapes; hence, you can create an aesthetically pleasing look with interlock paving. You can also opt for a simple running bond, intricate herringbone and a variety of other patterns to give you a beautiful front or backyard.
