We are starting design work on a new project in Balmain – alterations and additions to one of a pair of grand terraces, a listed heritage item. The house is in pretty good condition for its age, but the new owners want to update it and provide accommodation for the three generations of their family, over the three levels (there is a garden flat in the basement) – 2 new kitchens, 3 new bathrooms, a small deck and a garden room. This is a long section through the house.
The DA was approved by Leichhardt Council in October 2015.
The owners will manage the construction process and design the finer details themselves (unfortunately – see here for more on why you shouldn’t build from DA drawings).
