Dale Alcock Home Improvement transforms bungalow into family home

When homeowners Kathryn and Lee Webb enlisted Dale Alcock Home Improvement to transform their small, 1950s bungalow into a modern home for a growing family they never could have imagined the end result.

The Mount Hawthorn property had good bones but was small and tired and desperately in need of an update. The three-by-one home was converted into a four-by-two with plenty of space for children and entertaining.

Mr and Mrs Webb wanted to retain some of the homes original character as this is what had drawn them to the home in the first place. This meant the extension was added off the back of the house to create a new open-plan kitchen and living area, plus a new laundry.

Dale Alcock Home Improvements redesigned areas of the original house to use space more efficiently, allowing for a new bedroom and ensuite with walk-in wardrobe. The designers were also able to utilise the laneway at the rear of the property to include a new double gargage with shopper’s entry into the laundry and pantry.

Through innovative thinking and creative design, the team at Dale Alcock Home Improvement managed to almost double the size of the original house and created a property the owners are proud to call home.

Construction began in February 2016 with the whole project taking seven months to complete. The Webb’s couldn’t be happier with the end result.

“We are thrilled with how it has all come togethers” Mrs Webb said.

“Every aspect is a lot more functional. We are able to entertain comfortable and fit the family around a 10-seater dining table.”
