IN PROGRESS: Extension Project – Brisbane

For the last few months, the GCProjects Reno team have been working hard on this extension project in a leafy suburb of Brisbane.

The scope of this project has involved the enclosure of the original balcony to add extra space to the lounge and dining space internally, and then a new 40sqm deck to make the most of the beautiful view (and summer breeze).

We’re coming to the end of the project, so stay tuned for final photos very soon!
