You’ll feel at home with JKG Building
CRAFTING BEAUTIFUL HOMES & AMAZING SPACES
Every project has its own unique challenges; optimising space on a small inner-city lot, navigating complicated heritage overlays or anticipating and maintaining community safety around the job site. For each of our clients the journey will vary somewhat, but the end result always the same…a beautiful home that exceeds their expectations.
The most important role we play when designing and building a custom home is working closely with our clients to understand their specific needs and provide the trusted advice and options to achieve their goals.
Of course JKG communicate at every stage throughout the life of the project, regardless of whether the client wants to be actively engaged or prefers a ‘light touch’ leaving everything to us.
KNOCK-DOWN / REBUILD
If you love your neighbourhood yet your home is feeling a little tired, or it no longer suits your needs, we’ll help you realise the potential of your existing site.
Working with our trusted design consultants our team will translate your aspirations and ideas into a detailed design brief. Then we will work with you to craft these concepts into an exclusive custom home design using the latest CAD and 3D modelling technologies where you get to experience your new home to ensure you get what you want.
BRING IN YOUR OWN PLANS
Perhaps you’ve completed the early work with a design consultant of your own…that’s great! Our team will work with you and your chosen practitioners to ensure that the ‘buildability’ of those plans translate to your site. Typically this would include a review of the design itself, specific regulatory and safety requirements, material choices, lead times and other critical criteria. Then we can provide an accurate quotation and program.
Our goal here is to ensure we have a seamless understanding of your vision and goals.
Extensions and Renovations
Transforming your existing home better respond to the every-changing needs of a busy life is an extremely satisfying process.
From a simple refresh of a kitchen or bathroom to a major bedroom, rumpus room or office extension, JKG will provide the experience that comes with delivering beautifully designed, liveable homes.
Whether you’ve just purchased a new home and it feels a little dated or you’ve lived in a home for many years and its feeling a little tired, a strategic renovation might be all you need to get that new home feeling again. JKG are regularly engaged to overhaul kitchens, bathrooms, and indoor/outdoor entertainment spaces where we tend to spend most of our time these days.
We engage highly skilled, local trades and craftspeople with meticulous attention to detail when it comes to quality cabinetry, stone, lighting, floor and wall finishes, appliances and automation.
If is a more substantial transformation you’re looking to accommodate for a growing family, home business or simply building the value of your asset then JKG can help. Our team are highly capable at adding second storey extensions, extending the building envelope to add more bedrooms, extend family/entertainment rooms or adding the modern convenience of an ensuite in older homes.
JKG will work with you and design consultants to identify the possibilities then work to deliver an extension that marries seamlessly with the original building. We’ll source original materials to match existing brick and timber, windows and doors, stain glass, plaster and lighting to preserve the original heritage of your asset.
Realising the potential of your existing asset and optimising its value through subdivision is a capability deeply entrenched with JKG Building.
We’ve developed many of our own investment properties and helped countless clients do the same, building financial independence and security through property. JKG will advise on what’s possible on a given site and ensure the chosen approach can sustain your expected outcomes.
DUAL OCCUPANCY DEVELOPMENT
A popular dual occupancy strategy is to retain the existing property and subdivide and build on the back portion of the site. In doing so, the original property is renovated inside and out whilst a new dwelling is built at the rear. Alternatively, the existing dwelling can be demolished, and the site cleared, ready for two new dwellings to be built. There are benefits and limitations to both options so JKG specialist can help determine the best strategy for you.
JKG will help develop the site by designing a solution in line with the residential building code of Victoria, manage the planning application process, then once approved, deliver the build.
If you have a larger site that may accommodate up to six dwellings, JKG can help you build a quality investment solution. Whilst all the same technical expertise from building a dual occupancy applies here, what’s often most important is the planning and community engagement process.
We’ll work with you and our expert panel of design consultants, local property specialists and trades to shape the project parameters and manage community expectations and regulatory boundaries. Our goal is to deliver a high performing asset with maximum appeal within your budgetary requirements.
RUNNING AN EMPIRE OR LAUNCHING A START-UP DREAM? DOING SO FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME WITHOUT COMPROMISING COMFORT AND CONVENIENCE IS A REALITY. JOIN THE HOME OFFICE REVOLUTION.
Following a lengthy and imposed period of working from home Victorian’s in particular seem to have adapted extremely well, and now in many cases prefer to work from home. Throughout our recent journey we’ve certainly tested the boundaries of our spaces, sharing inadequate work areas, working from kitchen tables, bedrooms and even garages.
At times it’s been a struggle to find a quite space with appropriate access to power and Wi-Fi, natural light, and simply supportive of our physical needs. More importantly, the workspace needs to feel like a real workplace in order to inspire productivity.
JKG Building understand that space matters especially at home and making good use of an existing or underutilised space from which to work is an important consideration. The options are many: merge rooms and reorganise your floor plan, extend the building envelope and add on that much needed room, or build a private loft office above your garage.
If you need more space and thinking about renovating or adding a free-standing structure, let JKG Building guide you through the options available and we’ll show you how to maximise value for your most important asset.
MULTI-PURPOSE SPACES THAT ADAPT AND TRANSFORM TO SUPPORT THE CHANGING NEEDS OF A GROWING FAMILY AND BUSY LIFESTYLE.
Flexibility is the key to creating liveable homes and lifestyles, and cleaver design and forethought is the pathway to enhancing property value. At JKG Building we encourage our clients to design homes and spaces that support today’s immediate needs. Equally, ‘life happens’ and families grow, children become teenagers then young adults, find partners and leave home, grandchildren arrive, hobbies take over and priorities constantly change.
Multi-purpose spaces are designed with changing needs in mind. Our clients engage us to create unique spaces and structures to suit their personalities and lifestyles. It’s an existing space with doors or walls that open to accommodate large family gatherings, then contract again. It’s a freestanding structure that can be a workshop, sewing room, guest house or overflow space and storage. It could be a custom garage or man cave for that classic car or bike. The options are endless.
What’s most important is the way we work with our clients and trusted consultants to ensure we are sympathetic to the existing dwelling design and ensure we identify the optimal solution. The end result should always be a space that looks and feels like it was always there…that’s our goal.
