The renovation at Hawthorne involved a complete new rear extension to include 2 new bedrooms, main bathroom, living, lounge kitchen combined with a sprawling outdoor deck.

The original home to the front was then completely stripped walls, windows, asbestos, then adding a new roof, new frame work, new external cladding, new windows, internal gyprock walls, ceilings, retaining the original decretive ceiling and cornices to the master bedroom, new doors, and skirtings, transforming this tired home into a brand new contemporary home with a hint of its era.
