Calley Homes have taken out the 2018 Supreme Renovation of the Year for this harbourside home in Tauranga.
This newly renovated home nestled on the edge of Tauranga Harbour has a relaxed feel about it. It's board and batten exterior is created with a a 35mm x 70mm batten detail and adds to the beachside bungalow style. Originally a 1989 "chillybin" house with plastered polystyrene it became a leaky home and so the owners contacted Calley Homes to tackle a full renovation and make it the family home they had dreamed of.
Stripping the home of all doors, joinery, cladding along with the roof the team began to deal with what was left. Right at the start they identified the level from the back of the house to the front side facing the harbour differed by 70mm. The existing roof lines also differed by 48mm.
The challenge was to bring the existing concrete floor together with the newly poured floor and transition the roofline heights to make the levels natural and seamless. The result is a stunning beachside bungalow with tonnes of character and a relaxed and homely vibe.
Creating character the home features Hardy Groove internal walls, salt and pepper concrete floors - highly polished. All the main living spaces open out to the Harbourside as does the master bedroom. Stunning feature details include the barn door, the library and the central kitchen island.
