A Breath of Fresh Air
This home is not only in a prime location with just a short walk to one of Perth’s crystal beaches, it holds a rather special history, the 1962 British Empire and Commonwealth Games Village was home to the athletes.
The clients wanted a space that would grow with their growing family, a place to entertain and a living space filled with natural light. Janik at Dalecki Design opted to design a layout that would open the space and allow the kitchen, living and dining area to seamlessly blend with the alfresco.
The 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom home has ample room, functional storage and luxury finishes. The existing rich jarrah floors in the area blends beautifully with the large grey concrete look floor tiles, leading you towards the bedrooms. The master suite is a relaxing private area with a large walk-in-robe, and a light filled built in day bed, perfect for catching the warm morning sun.
Throughout 2018 we contracted Kre8 Constructions to complete a major renovation on our property. There were a number of challenges with the property itself including the age, asbestos and the general poor condition of the property. We put the job out to tender and having built previously we knew what we wanted in a builder. Through the tender process we selected Kre8 Constructions. We really liked the previous work they had completed, they were reasonably priced and we clicked with Luke.
From the day we signed the contract everything went as smoothly as a renovation can go, with Luke and Alan keeping us informed along the way. Kre8 Constructions are everything you want in a builder – they produce quality work, they are very personable – and all the trades were happy to spend the time explaining things and answering any questions we had. They have a ‘can do’ attitude when challenges are presented, they are willing to try new methods of construction or new materials and the job was completed very quickly.
The greatest benefit we found was being able to work together as a team rather than client and builder – allowing us to solve any challenges that arose unexpectedly and within budget constraints. They understood us and what we wanted to achieve. Luke also worked closely with our designer to clarify any items that he needed to ensure everyone was on the same page. We had a lease expiring and had to move back into our new home and the team at Kre8 worked hard getting us in by our lease expiry. Luke was fantastic and nothing was ever a problem; we could always get hold of him or Alan if there was ever an issue and it was sorted out immediately. That is as we see it one of the key advantages of working with a group like Kre8 – being able to talk to the owners of the company directly and promptly whenever there are concerns.
Our home is now finished and we couldn’t be happier with the result – it really is unbelievable what Kre8 have done in a short space of time. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to complete a renovation.
