The team in their new work attire on site in Barwon Heads

Building Services
Our new, branded work hoodies have arrived so we thought this would be a great opportunity to kick off our new blog with a photo of the team hard at work in their new attire.
Our boys look great, and warm!
Jason, Sam and Locky are 17 weeks into the construction of a new modern home here in Barwon Heads.
This current construction is for our clients, Peter and Kristine, who have a sentimental story to tell about how they came to own their block in Barwon Heads.
It started with Kristine’s Grandfather, an avid Geelong supporter, who would often drive from Melbourne down to Geelong to watch the game and visit his brother who lived on Reid street within Barwon Heads.
A few years later in 1964, after the loss of his wife, he purchased a house in Margate Street for his only son (Kristine’s father) for the bargain price of 6,000 pounds! At the age of 3 years’ old, Kristine, her two siblings and her parents started the family tradition of holidaying in Barwon Heads at any chance they could get.
The original house held a lot of wonderful memories for Kristine, her siblings and their families. Kristine told us that the word “MOOMBA” best describes the original home, an aboriginal word for getting together and having fun. This is exactly what they have been doing for years.
Kristine has watched the town progress with a great mix of shops and cafes over the years and loves that Barwon Heads still maintains its “beachside appeal”.
Keeping in theme with the beach, Jason and the team’s brief was to deliver a new home which maintained the old beach house feel via the inclusion of lining boards and high ceilings, as well utilising the available natural light within the constructed living spaces. However, keeping the house simple whilst also providing the comforts of today’s modern homes was a must.
Kristine and Peter are very excited about the progress of their new holiday home and are looking forward to to the day when they can see their grandchildren walk down to the local river and create more special family memories.
