Organizing the building site for a new Home Extension or renovation. Halligans Blog

Ok now you have your Owner Building permits and council approved plans and CDC (Certificate of Design Compliance) and you are now ready to start building. Building Site organisation is a must for Home extensions and Home Renovations.

Off course every building site can be different and can present different challenges such as terracing

or benches, retaining walls and stone pitching. Maybe your building on stumps and you may need some levelling under alfresco or verandas, so a site organization plan is a good place to start looking at things, like access for trades and materials, concrete ect, a good plan will save time and shifting materials later and save money too. I would say be as efficient as possible and think ahead to avoid mistakes.

There is no exact science of how to approach a home building site, you just have to take in all the factors and prioritize the order in which you do the tasks. It is often best to do all siteworks and pipe laying, services ect, and then clean up site so as to get the best access for trades and materials, parking , storage etc. I do know that a poorly planned site is dangerous and leads to kaios and your trades may need to park down the street, and they wont be happy. Also a good practice is to schedule your trades so that not everyone is there at the same time looking for a parking space on a limited site having to bring tools and materials in.

one example might be do you need a rock breaker? If you do they can be quite large and cumbersome, so they need good access. There’s no point getting packs of bricks delivered ahead and put in its path, Schedule bricks later and do the rock breaking first. This all sounds logical, well it is if you plan first. Just think of the order in which you carry out the work and what’s needed for each section and you should get the best results providing all the players work with you. Remember a neat building site is gold. Suppliers and trades don’t always work to your time frames so you will need to factor that in when getting quotes. The cheapest are not always best if they cant fit you in when you need it. That’s why as builders we have established good relationships with our Trades and Suppliers where possible.

Granny flat Karragullen

Our client, Cliff, asked us to custom design and build a two-bedroom, timber framed, Granny flat with verandah on their existing orchard site in Karragullen. The site was quite a slope, and we used a steel stumps construction method to reduce the site earthworks costs. The result was fantastic, and Cliff and his family were over the moon! They said the new Granny flat was exactly what they wanted.

Storm Water repairs

Storms can cause extensive damage to homes in Perth. Here in the west, we have had weeks of relentless rain, occurring on an almost daily basis. Perth’s residential gutters, downpipes, and storm water systems are often inadequate and poorly maintained, so that when a decent amount of rain occurs, these systems often fail. Usually there are many factors involved. Ceilings and foundations can be damaged, and, flooding can cause substantial problems. A well designed and properly maintained storm water system, will help to avoid all these issues.

Halligans Building can provide the following services to the home owner.

  • Gutter Guards – BAL rated.
  • Gutters and downpipes system redesigned and installed.
  • Stormwater pipes installed.
  • Plastic modular soak wells installed.
  • Mini excavator and tipper service.

Remodelling a Late 70’s Brick House.

My clients, Frank and Doreen, approached me to design and construct extensions and renovations for this late 70’s home in Roleystone.

We added approx. 26m2 to the kitchen, 14m2 to extend two existing bedrooms, as well as a 39m2 Alfresco extension for outdoor living. Additionally, we also constructed a new front entry porch. The result was stunning, and completely transformed the modest outdated home, into a new and modern, open plan living space, bringing the outdoors inside.

Frank loved the new area and enjoyed the transformed orchard block, whilst Doreen got the beautiful new home she had always wanted. Almost anything is possible with Halligans Building.
