I would like to invite you to quote for the Drafting of the plans required for renovations and alterations on my property.
I require the services of a draftsman to draw up the required plans associated with the building consent and building works I wish to undertake at Stanmore Bay, Whangaparoa, New Zealand.
A brief description of the property and works are as follows.
The existing 2 storey house is a 1991 built ‘Lockwood’ by Initial homes of approx. 80sqm. It has living areas on the 2nd storey with a garage underneath.
In phase one we wish to raise the house from 2.2m to 2.4m and remove the existing poles and replace them with a concrete footing and timber frame to support the house. This would require the removal and relaying of the concrete slab that is the floor of the garage. The existing bracing will be removed and replaced with bracing elements internal to the walls. This would facilitate the relocation of the laundry and the addition of a 2nd bathroom and 2 more bedrooms and a 2nd living area.
Phase 2. Up-stairs we wish to open the wall between the kitchen and the living area to facilitate a centre kitchen island bench and breakfast bar seating. The laundry adjacent to the kitchen will be relocated to the downstairs bathroom and that area repurposed into the pantry and kitchen storage.
Phase 3. In the lounge we wish to remove the existing ranch slider front door on the north wall and the box window on the east wall and replace both with by-fold doors. This will require an extension of the existing decking around to the east wall approximately halfway along.
The 4th phase of the renovation would see a redesign of the upstairs master and minor bedrooms and bathroom and toilet. An extension of the bathroom into the area of the minor bedroom would allow for on-suite access from the master and relocation of the toilet into the same area would allow room for the addition of internal access stairs.
Some initial plans and concept drawings have been done as well as some initial consult with structural engineers. these plans are attached below.
