This Bellbowrie home was given a full makeover at the beginning of 2016, which included an extension, new rendering, three new bathrooms, four bedrooms plus a study, TV room and dining room. A spacious kitchen overlooking a timber back deck and pool and fully fenced backyard complete the idyll.
The impressive outdoor entertaining area is huge, 100 square metres in size, boasting spotted gum decking that matches the tongue and groove flooring installed throughout the internal living areas. The largest scissor trusses available have been used in the construction to maximise the amount of natural light that can enter the interiors.
The owner of TM Residential Projects, Tyson Marshall, notes that, as with all renovations, it’s the sense of flow between the old and the new that is the greatest measure of success. And, in this family home, that included a connection to the land on which it sits.
“The guest bathroom and kitchen bench tops are crafted from trees on the site, which we had milled with a portable Lucus Mill. We had them dried off-site in a solar kiln, and then dressed at a timber joinery company and brought back to the site to fabricate into timber bench tops,” he explains.

The scope proved to be challenging, with the project developing and growing over the three months it took to completion, thanks in part to the homeowners’ major life events during that period, including an overseas trip and a newborn baby. However, TM Residential Projects brought the project in on the original schedule, thanks to clients who had a very clear, precise brief and through the good communication and teamwork of all involved.
The result is a renovated home of outstanding design and integrity, fit for a growing family.
