We approached the delicate restoration of this Victorian, Edwardian-style home with care. We took care to maintain the high-quality structure of the house while refreshing and modernising elements on the inside in only ten weeks.

TESTIMONIALS

Presented fabulous ideas

It was a nerve-racking decision to renovate our house instead of knocking it down and starting new. But, we’re over the moon with the outcome! We’ve kept our home’s integrity but now it’s modern and functions much better. Peter accommodated any changes we requested and even gave us some fabulous ideas. The quality of the work and finishes are second to none, just as we wanted. And work was done on time – very impressed! We have a beautiful, comfortable home thanks to Peter and staff. We highly recommend Secon Constructions.

On time & within budget

We’re delighted with how Secon Constructions renovated our family home. They maintained the integrity of the front of our Californian Bungalow, while seamlessly adding a contemporary open plan living area and second storey. Peter suggested we install a skylight in our hallway and, integrate a reading nook into a large picture window. Both features make a big contribution to our home’s aesthetic. On schedule and within budget— we’ve no hesitation in recommending the Secon team.

The highest integrity & quality

My wife Tracey and I had a vision for our dream home; an extra floor on our double storey and a special space ‘in the treetops’ for the master bedroom and home office. Maintaining the integrity of the existing house was challenging and it soon became clear that, in effect, we’d be building two storeys onto the ground floor. Peter and his team handled the project magnificently—all issues during and after completion were handled with diligence, a desire to get it right and good communication. Work was completed when we expected, and for a reasonable cost. The result is superb. We love living in our ‘new’ home! We’re thankful we chose Secon and gladly recommend Peter and his team to anyone looking for a builder of the highest integrity and quality.
