Period Home Restoration

Period renovations for Melbourne homes

Period homes can be some of the most beautiful and intriguing in Melbourne, having a historical and sometimes even romantic feel to them. With this in mind, we understand that it can be a daunting prospect when considering home restoration.

The wonder of maintaining a period home allows you to enjoy the aesthetics of a bygone era, while also taking advantage of modern comforts. Our renovation efforts will always seek to preserve the very best elements of your period home, to keep it as individual as you.

At Cameron Construction we are experts at marrying the two by designing a comfortable and luxurious house, whilst maintaining the charm of your period home in Melbourne.

Designing your Period Home Restoration

When designing and planning a restoration that involves a period home, it is important to work with a specialist team who understand not only how to maintain the original character but also why. Period homes are so special and at Cameron Construction we will work closely with you throughout the design phase to ensure we are achieving everything you are hoping for, whilst maintaining the integrity of your period home.

Planning for period home extensions

1. Pre-planning

Our team will meet you in the comfort of your home. Here we will view the property and talk about the initial ideas for the project. Our specialist teams have a carefully devised pre-planning process to help us visualise the project and provide you with the appropriate solutions for your property. We will come up with a freehand concept sketch along with an approximate cost of the period home extension. Our emphasis on planning also means you get the chance to select the best materials and period elements, for an elevated and authentic renovation.

2. Design-Development

Afterward, our design team will conceptualise the idea and bring it on paper. This involves creating concept drawings, detailed specifications, and a fixed price quotation.

3. Documentation

After the final details have been discussed and agreed upon, the formal agreement will be signed. This will be followed by full working drawings, specifications, along with a formal building contract ready for building permits.

4. Commencement

Once the building permit is issued construction will commence within 21 days. Works will be managed by an experienced and professional project manager and will be overseen by our construction manager ensuring a high-quality finish and a guaranteed completion date.

Obligation Free Consultation

We arrange initial consultations at your home to discuss use, needs, desires, budget, time, and materials to develop an achievable plan that will meet all your requirements. Our representative will be more than happy to answer any renovation or restoration question you may have and provide experienced insight into what will work in your home.

Comprehensive Written Quotation

Following your consultation, we will develop plans and sketches of your home, including a computer-enhanced 3D model, so that you completely understand what the project will entail. Accompanying these visualisations of your new home, we provide a written quotation and a fixed price contract for your consideration before approving your new house extension renovation.

Rebuilding your Period-style Home with Cameron Construction

Heritage builders in Melbourne

It wouldn’t be outlandish to say that renovating or extending an existing period home may be more complex than building a brand new home from scratch. We know that there are a wide variety of factors to consider when choosing to renovate a period home. While these homes stand as impressive symbols of a time long gone, often the difficulty is in finding ways to preserve their notable characteristics while still modernising the structure for a more contemporary lifestyle. This is why you should partner with a company like Cameron Construction when embarking on this process. We will work through all considerations with you from modern insulation requirements through to specialised building permits.

At Cameron Construction, we understand every project is unique. As such, we believe that the best way to achieve a balanced feel is to respect your home’s pre-existing features where possible.
