With two weeks to go, the sun is shining and I believe the rain has disappeared. We are about to handover 2 projects before Christmas so that our clients are able to spend the special day with their family in their newly renovated homes. 

TCON Group will be closing it's doors from Saturday 24th December and re-opening on Monday 16th January so that our staff can enjoy a well deserved break with their family and friends.
We have sent out a few tenders in time for the new year, so we are looking forward to hearing the results in time to schedule potential projects for the new year.

Current Projects - We have completed Carlton (Photos in the next month) and we are at handover stage with Brighton as the cabinet maker needs to complete some finishing touches. Our Northcote extension is due for Christmas and the boys are well and truly on target with this one. Over at Hawthorn we have the second storey frame going up this week and Toorak has a roof on, the renderers will arrive next week and we should be close to lockup by Christmas. The finishing touches are happening over at Canterbury with the pool being filled and serviced on Wednesday.

We have a couple of new time lapse videos in the Projects section this month, Hawthorn showcases our concreters pouring the slab and Toorak will show you how we frame up a second storey and roof.

If you are considering a renovation at the moment, then feel free to get in touch with any of my team and we would be happy to provide any guidance that you might need.

Hopefully you all enjoy our newest monthly email, I would appreciate any feedback that might help us make it a more engaging publication.

This Month - The clients cabinetmaker has a few finishing touches to add and we will be able to get our electrician in to finalise the under mount LED lighting. The house is clean and ready, they have moved in and we look forward to getting the final photographs completed.

Overview - We specialise in Architectural extensions and this Spanish mission is no exception to the rule. With humble beginnings and a big vision for her new home, Sarah and her designers have worked hard to come up with something that is both good looking and a functional space. The detail finds itself in every facet of the façade, with its tall Silvertop Ash cladded walls and inside, a vast, modern, light filled room. We’re harnessing natural light everywhere we can, keeping the house open, warm and functional. Stay tuned to see how we harness some of the Spanish heritage features to blend this home into the 21st Century.
This Month - The joinery is in and benchtops will arrive this week, painters are applying final coats inside and out. The floor sanders have finished and we have wrapped up the floors to protect them. Two weeks to go and we will have Northcote complete before Christmas.

Overview - Our clients have worked with their designer to open up this Victorian Weatherboard home in a leafy pocket of Northcote. We've added a new main bedroom with WIR, Ensuite for Mum and Dad, along with new timber flooring and joinery to the existing bedrooms. A central Laundry backs on to a new Kitchen, which flows through nicely to the Living room and new Playroom at the back of the property.

We've maximised the light and outlook in to the backyard with classy black Aluminium double glazed Stackers, Sliders, and Fixed panel windows. New Wormy Chestnut Timber floors will transition beautifully in to the existing polished concrete Living room, and accentuate the modern finishes throughout.
This Month - The concrete slab is complete, the wall frames are up and the second storey framing is going in this week. Nice to see the frame up before Christmas to ensure we have a productive start to 2017!

Overview - Hawthorn is a second storey extension to a stunning 1930's semi detached clinker brick home. The rear two thirds of the home has been demolished to make way for a split level extension. Going down four steps into a light filled Family/Meals room with nice open plan and a view into the Northern entertaining area with swimming pool and deck. Upstairs we have 2 new spacious bedrooms, bathroom and built in robes.

This Month - The roof tilers are finished, and we have prepped the external frame for render. The plumbers are here all week finalising the lower roof and we are aiming to have this home locked up before Christmas.

Overview - Toorak is a double fronted solid brick period home that we are demolishing the back north eastern quarter of the home, and putting a small 10m2 extension that will create a large entertaining area and kitchen. Once we head upstairs, the second storey will consist of two new large bedrooms, a walk-in-robe and ensuite.
This Month - With the pool being filled up on Wednesday, we will have the decking down, the glass balustrade installed and complete a few final touches to this decking by the end of the week. The joinery unit will be installed on Thursday/Friday, and we will have handover complete by Christmas so the family can use their new pool.

Overview - We have been working with Victor and Michelle since November 2015 around their busy schedule as they decided to do section by section of their house when timing was right. The final stage is here and we are building a pergola and decking around their brand new swimming pool just in time for Christmas. With large Ironbark posts to be features of the pergola, and decking to match, this final piece of the puzzle will complete their beautiful home.
