Canterbury house: before and after

When Neale arrived at the charming Canterbury house, it was literally bursting at the seems. Here's how he made it more functional.

Neale had a renovation budget of AUD $280,000 and needed to deliver five or more bedrooms, another bathroom, additional living space and an outdoor area. He certainly had his work cut out for him.

To win the family over, and convince them to fall back in love with their Canterbury bungalow – Neale optimises space and functionality by swapping rooms around.

He also offers to build an 8m rear extension, drawing from the expansive backyard. The only compromise is that he’ll only be able to create two extra bedrooms for the family.

Read the full recap of this renovation here and see the full transformation below.
