We are excited to have received heritage planning approval for our latest renovation to the state heritage listed ‘Magnolia Cottage’, located in East Launceston, Tasmania. This sensitive and sympathetic design was carefully conceived to harmonise with the character of the existing dwelling, while creating new modern, light filled spaces for our clients to enjoy.
The last couple of months has seen the completion of all the electrical and plumbing rough-in, installation of wall and floor insulation and commencement of window installation.
Concept design images for our latest house design in Golden Valley, Tasmania. This house will be our most sustainable design to date, incorporating all aspects of environmentally sustainable design from off-grid solar power, correct and considered solar orientation, use of thermal mass, composting toilets and on site grey water treatment systems.
The last few months have seen all the pre-cast concrete panels craned and fixed into place, all concrete floors poured with included hydronic heating installed and a small section of stainless steel roofing installed.
Work will now commence on the installation of windows as well as the rough-in of plumbing and electrical systems. The final fit out of linings, joinery and fittings will follow after.
The last few weeks has seen a lot of steady progress made on site. The ground floor suspended concrete slab has been installed including hydronic floor heating and all the precast concrete panels to the ground floor have been installed into place
This floor comprises the sleeping and bathing level as well as access to the private courtyard at ground level
Progress on the foundations is well underway, with the lower ground floor slab now poured and excavation work commenced on the ground floor slab. The ground floor slab will be partly founded in the ground and partly a suspended concrete slab supported by pre-cast concrete walls which are currently being fabricated 300km away. The transportation and erection of the pre-cast panels will commence in the next fortnight.
