Kristie approached GJ Gardner Homes Geelong in August 2012 and spoke with New Home Sales Consultant Jim Upchurch. Kristie came to us with her own concept plan which we modified to suit her requirements. The site was unique in that it was a sub-divided block with a ten metre frontage. Utilising our local tradespeople and suppliers, the result is a stunning three bedroom home complete with three bathrooms, rumpus room, study, open plan living, single garage and open courtyard in 21.3 SQ.
The client’s had very specific requirements for the home and wanted to make the best use of the condensed site. The kitchen includes reconstituted stone bench tops with tiled splashback, SMEG appliances and a classy white gloss finish to all cabinetry, giving this kitchen a stunning contemporary look and feel. Both bathrooms include laminated bench tops with a white gloss finish to the cabinetry, tiled flooring and Caroma plumbing fittings and fixtures. The entry, kitchen, pantry, study and open plan living and dining were finished with polished concrete flooring while the upstairs bedrooms and rumpus were finished with a high quality carpet. The home includes walk in pantry, raised ceiling height to ground floor, sound screen insulation batts to entire first floor, open court yard, split system heating and cooling with multi-transon windows. The exterior of the home has a blend of rendered foam cladding, brick and colorbond cladding while the driveway and courtyard have been finished with exposed aggregate. The Porch has been finished with an external floor tile. Ultimately the end result is a blend of different textured materials and products which have been finished to a standard that represents quality as soon as you walk in the front door.

The block was already sub-divided when Kristie approached GJ Gardner Homes Geelong and the plans were for a double storey on a condensed footprint. Kristie had very specific requirements with regards to the flooring, colours and façade. Kristie was very selective with the detail made sure that every room and each item in the home was carefully chosen. Her diligence during this process ensured that when construction was completed, the result was an impressive, contemporary style home.
