Modern Home

This contemporary, innovative home was built with all the modern luxuries for a semi-retired couple on the coast.

The house was designed as two separate living pods attached by an outdoor breezeway; one they could live in themselves and the other to accommodate their extended family and friends in a private, self-contained area. The couple wanted a home that would maximise their ocean views, the north-facing light and would emulate their love of natural materials such as timber and masonry.

    “Moving permanently from Canberra to the coast; needing to work from home; and wanting to protect our precious bush and wildlife meant careful extensions and renovations were needed to our 30+ year old beach house. After a lengthy process of trying to find a builder we were comfortable to work with, we were pleasantly surprised to find an intelligent, energetic and highly competent young builder close to home in South Durras - Daniel Perrem. Nevertheless, having undertaken renovations at other homes, we were not looking forward to the inevitable disruption to life and obstacles that delay work or make changes necessary. So we still marvel at the smoothness of the process managed by Daniel and so ably supported by the people he works with. It’s hard to imagine a build where you don’t have a single complaint, teams and products turn up on time and all work is done to a very high standard. We also marvel at the pleasant, co-operative and problem-solving approach adopted by Daniel and his team. Most importantly we are thrilled with the result! We have a beautiful new section to our home and renovations to the old. Disruption to work and our lives was minimal (as was building mess). We wholeheartedly recommend Daniel for any scale of building. He has excellent project management skills and is calm, helpful and pleasant with his teams and clients. ”
