The focus of this project was to create a larger home for a young growing family. We achieved this by adding a first floor whilst opening up the ground floor to create an open plan living / kitchen / dining area that flows out to the covered entertaining area outside.
The client did want to add a carport to the property but this was not achievable with this site through Complying Development (CDC). When discussing the options we had with approval pathways we removed the carport from the design so we didn’t have to go down a DA approval path. CDC approval was preferred due to the quicker approval times and lower costs involved.
