After a few years renovating our personal Forever Homes (and wow, what an amazing experience that was), we've decided it was time to go back to our roots, with a quickie reno of an old-school Aussie eyesore. And of course, she's in our heartland - the Hills District of Sydney. This 60s home lacks all character and charm, it has no endearing features and absolutely zero street appeal - just what we were looking for! #uglyduckling
The home is on a nice-sized block of land (670 sqm) but the floor area is only 114 sqm which means there's just not enough house for modern day living where second lounge rooms and ensuites are the norm. So we're going to blow out the back of this lil' beauty with a bold extension to increase the liveable space indoors and we'll completely transform the backyard from desolate wasteland to an alfresco extravaganza. Oh and that awful facade!? #eek It's going to need some some real reno magic!
Join us on this journey as we try to give this ugly duckling the happy ending she deserves!
This is what we were working with....
