Before and after: Park Orchards makeover

Neale Whitaker had quite a task on his hands creating a new home for this famiy of 11!

Meet Mel, Macca and their nine children. This family was in desperate need of some help from team love it in order for them to stay in their much loved home.

The family ate meals squashed on an eight seater dining table and there weren’t enough bedrooms for everyone. Enter Neale Whitaker! Neale took their humble home and created a modern floor plan with room to spare.

Neale combined the kitchen and adjacent living room to create one big open space. By moving the brick fireplace, Neale opened up the floor plan of the home creating even more space.

In the kitchen he built a super-sized storage solution for Mel, and created two new bedrooms.

It's safe to say that Neale's clever renovating tricks taught this family to love their old home.

Take a look at the full makeover below.
