This beautiful 70s home on Wing Point Golf Course was a joy to work on. Primarily a cosmetic renovation of the kitchen and bathrooms, the 2atara team also worked on creating more effective lines of sight throughout the home. By relocating some doors and windows, 2atara provided improved views out to the Golf Course. An upstairs loft space, with nice separation from the rest of the house was also renovated into a very hip home office.
Working within the constraints of a tight budget, the 2atara team came up with some very creative ways to cut costs for the homeowners. The old wood burning stove was removed and instead of also removing and dumping the chimney, the cavity was carefully repurposed as a window seat nook – keeping unnecessary construction waste out of the landfills.
As with all 2atara projects, sustainable technology and materials were introduced, including water saving toilets, low VOC paints and a sustainably focused tile company named Happy Floors was hired for the flooring. Sustainable Thermory decking was installed which is made from fast growing abundant Ash trees – a softwood that is baked 3 times to blacken and transform into a strong and durable material, it does not need painting and will not need maintenance during its long lifetime. Corten steel was used to create a beautiful planter along the length of the home, also requiring no painting or maintenance.
With very little work done to the home over the last 30 years this makeover was an extraordinary success.
