Love your character home?

Giving your character home a second chance is a heart-warming, rewarding experience.

By renovating, not only will you get to stay in the location you love, you’ll also create a home with authentic charm and historic significance, with all the modern conveniences you can enjoy.

Things to think about when renovating your character home:

  • When renovating a character home, consider how the new work will impact the existing, both internally and externally.
  • If you have a 1960s or 70s home with raked pine ceilings, painting the ceilings and structure out in one colour can be a fantastic way to modernise it without losing the impact of the volume, the structural rhythm and the patterning that the ceiling has.
  • Review how your services will run through the old home. Adding a bathroom into an upper floor area over original ceilings can be problematic as the floor space may not be sufficient to run your pipework.
  • Adding air-conditioning to old homes, for example, can disrupt original ceilings by punching holes through them. Think about whether you want to do this before it happens on site.
