Mooloolaba Renovation

This beautifully renovated house in Mooloolaba was designed by architect David Oliver and built by Coastal Style Constructions. It comprises a two story construction, doubling the original house in size.  The newly renovated home considers energy efficiency with controlled solar design of glass areas, windows and louvers positioned to capture breezes and abundant natural light.  The open plan living area connects to a large outdoor living room and pool area via 6 metre wide triple sliding doors. The north facing outdoor room features a butterfly roof, which maximises light and airflow to both the outdoor room and the adjoining living areas. Winner of Sunshine Coast Region Master Builders Award 2014, for best renovation/remodelling project under $275,000.

Maleny New Residence

This stunning architect designed home sits snugly on a half-acre of sloped land, opening out to the garden on both floor levels. Some of this home’s unique features are stained polished concrete floors to living areas and bathrooms, exposed floor joists at the ceiling, concrete block walls internally and externally, transparent wall panels for light, skylights, frameless corner glass windows, and massive picture windows fitted directly to the stone walls. The design considers energy efficiency with controlled solar design of glass areas avoiding air conditioning, using ceiling fans, a wood burning metal firebox, a heat pump water heater and abundant natural light.  This amazing home won the Sunshine Coast Master Builders Housing and Construction award for Individual Home $626,000 – $775,000, 2014.

Warana Renovation

This tired beach house was long overdue for some TLC.  The existing single garage was converted into a fourth bedroom and the kitchen and bathrooms and the floors were replaced.  A double carport was installed at the side of the property in keeping with council regulations.

Mooloolaba New Residence

On the  Mooloolaba waterfront this beautiful home is a dream come true.   The owners commissioned a local building designer to create their “forever” family home with 4 bedrooms, office and a second family room.  With Brenton from Coastal Style Constructions as their preferred builder, the result is a stunning, but liveable family home which embraces its waterfront location and maximises the northern aspect.

Buderim Deck

This home high on Buderim, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, desperately needed a better outdoor living space.  The deck, designed by a local architect and built by Brenton Howell of Coastal Style Constructions, has provided this family with a large, stylish and very usable outdoor space.

Buderim Renovation

This modest family home in Buderim was transformed into a suburban dream home.  The interior of the home was reconfigured to  maximise the living space, and a large outdoor entertaining area was added to provide year round entertaining in Buderim’s beautiful climate.  Interior plans and finishes designed by Susan Tagney-Howell.

Buderim Renovation/Rebuild

This fabulous Buderim home was transformed by Brenton and his team, from a dowdy turn of the century house into a state of the art home for a local pilot and his family.  Set on three quarters of an acre in the heart of Buderim, it is a large comfortable family home, with a stunning pool and gardens. Design by David Oliver, Greenway Architects.
