Amazing Hamilton Hill House Transformation

Cornell Engineers was proud to work with Novo Property to complete this amazing house renovation project in Hamilton, Brisbane.

The project included a new outdoor living area adjacent to an existing pool. The new structure features exposed steel framing, a vaulted timber ceiling and a cornerless bifold door.

Head over to Novo Property to see more photos of the finished project!

How This Project Came About

This project actually started for Cornell Engineers in June 2018. The builder, Novo Property, came to us with the architectural drawings already complete by a local building designer and the structural engineering drawings already complete by a local structural engineer.

The drawings were not great. They lacked clarity and detail.

Kenmore Project Kicked Off

Construction of this architecturally styled new home in Kenmore kicked off this month.

Project start. Photo taken November 2017.

Splayed over three levels and nestled into the Kenmore landscape, this home features a luxurious mid-level master bedroom at the same level as the main living space and three more bedrooms on the upper level.

The home’s entry showcases the hearty colours of raw timber with exposed timber pergola rafters over shot edge timber decking. A truly magnificent ‘future ‘streetview’.

Congratulations on a beautiful home extension and thanks for sharing your photos.

Day dreaming. How the deck could look when it’s finished.
