Railway Estate - Renovation


JUST A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT

This project was also a perfect example of what can be achieved within a difficult, flood zoned area in a lovely part of old Townsville. The character of the old cottage meeting the style and look of the new construction. 

We started with a small, old, run down cottage which was in great need of a facelift. This little place was in for a big shock with what we and our clients had in mind. It all started with a lift up off the old hardwood stumps. The cottage up in the air now around 2.5m higher than it originally was, looked mighty tall. Then came the brand new extension, this was to be something else. Modern lines and fittings, with the latest in Kitchen design, bespoke living room wallpaper finishes and a fully black tiled Ensuite bathroom with a textured feature mosaic wall. Something new for us to incorporate with this Ensuite was fibre optic lighting which was laid throughout the tiles on the shower wall. This was topped off with a translucent niche unit which was also lit by the optics in the wall. 

Moving out into the main living area, we selected solid cypress timber flooring which was secret nailed to the timber joists. This was paired with Cypress decking externally to create a seamless vision from inside to out. 

The grand showcase piece from Samford Homes was a one off, custom staircase built buy our highly skilled tradesmen on site. This was a steel structure unit, hand fabricated inside the building. The timber used for the treads was expertly machined on site by Samford Homes out of the original old stumps from the existing cottage. The nearly 100 year old Red Ironbark timber was extremely stable, having had a lifetime to cure on location.  This timber and steel staircase is one of the most highly detailed pieces to be crafted by the team at Samford Homes.
