The Project

This original 100 year old villa was a major renovation project to modernise the whole house to bring it back to life while retaining its character and history also while bringing the home up to the healthy homes standards.

The challenge

This home had many renovations over the years. So we had to start from a blank canvas to set the tone on the overall finish that we were after. The bones of the house needed some TLC such as rectifying insulation and fixing drainage to create a warm, dry and healthy home.

End result

These clients were over the moon with their renovation. It certainly achieved our goals of creating a warm, dry, healthy and modern home by retaining its character and history for our clients to enjoy. We feel very privileged to work on beautiful villas like these that have so many stories to tell.

Russ, Jen and the entire crew were an absolute pleasure to work with! They came into a flood damaged home, with half walls missing and have worked alongside us to create a modern and upgraded home to our dreams! As our first time renovating they really have made it easy for us to renovate in the future and we even picked up some new skills along the way from the team! Big shout out to Tony, Jordy, Ben and Finn for the hard work to the house and even being super respectful while I was doing overnights! Can't thank them enough and so happy to have our home back after over a year!

“The team at Licensed Renovations were great to deal with. Their brief was to manage the renovation of our existing bathroom and addition of a new en suite. We are delighted with the end result, they managed the entire process and communicated well throughout the build. Will definitely use them again.”

“I just wanted to say before the house is completed how happy I am with the workmanship and quality of the renovation! My wife and I are really impressed and glad we chose you guys. I had a good look around yesterday and please tell all your tradies they have done a first class job. The plumbing, electrical work and painting are first class. And your advice on colours and floorings was spot on. Lastly my wife and I are going to sell the house and we’re looking forward to getting a good price. Please thank the team for a great job.”
