The growing renovation

Emma and Paul bought an Earthquake damaged house over two years ago advertised ‘as is where is’. They had a baby on the way but the earthquake damage was mainly cosmetic. It was uninsured and needed a couple of engineering repairs and what was planned to be a small renovation, soon turned into a massive one.

Emma chose all the Resene colours herself. The green behind the fireplace and on the doors is Resene Bitter and the walls are Resene Quarter Green White. The outside plaster is Resene Eagle and the soffits are Resene Element. Along with help from family they painted all of the interior themselves.

From the initial small renovation, they have ended up changing room sizes/layout, re-lining, getting a new kitchen and new bathroom, re-cladding, new roof, new deck, all new double glazing and restoring the original Rimu flooring! It’s been worth it as it looks stunning.


Thanks to Emma.
