“...Outdoor living at its best”

Project Outline

This family home situated in Takapuna was primed for a deck and living area renovation to make the most of indoor / outdoor flow potential.

NDH was asked to offer to a comprehensive design and build solution that would begin at the planning stages. NDH initially provided the client with a highly skilled draftsman who began laying the foundation with drawings that eventually would lead to a hassle-free building consent process.

Once consented, Louis and his team removed the rotten deck and replaced it with a new floating kwila decking over a waterproofed substructure. Other key features included a glass balustrade that provided an unobstructed view, as well as a louvered roof over the upper level would allow for a usable outdoor area all year round. The family could now also enjoy a dry courtyard outdoor area underneath the house beyond the family media room.  

The renovation did have its challenges, which were mainly around working with young children in the home during the renovation. This meant workplace safety had to consistently be at an all-time high. Height in relation to boundary restriction was also an issue, but with the help of a strong builder / draftsman relationship, it was overcome early on during the planning and consent process.

Once the deck was completed, NDH was asked to stick around for a few additional months tidying up the property and bringing it up to a modern living standard in other key areas of the property. Now the client can fully enjoy their complete, modern home - everything from entertaining to raising children for years to come.
