An Environmentally Innovative House Renovation and Extension in Box Hill

MBC-Blint_3IrvingBoxHill021 copyA Californian bungalow in Box Hill has been transformed by Blint Design + Construction. The home owner needed to create more space to accommodate children growing older and a senior family member  moving into the family home. They wanted to adapt the home to meet the family’s changing needs, rather than sell up and move.

MBC-Blint_3IrvingBoxHill014a copyThe House Designer took a lead from European Designers, who believe that you no longer designate rooms as a bedroom or living space, but build the space so it can be adapted to different needs as family circumstances change. The home was renovated and extended so it can adapt and grow with the family

MBC-Blint_3IrvingBoxHill012 copyThe interior has been renovated to create a large, spacious living area in a contemporary design with a media centre and a self contained apartment within the house. Passive solar energy has been incorporated into the design of the house, with the morning winter sun entering the house from the north east, and the use of large eaves to protect the house from the west, double glazing and the house is zoned for maximum efficiency when heating or cooling. This innovative renovation features  a bladder system for water storage and grey water is used in the toilets. Similar renovations have been completed by Blint Design + Construction in Hawthorn, Burwood, Malvern, East Malvern and many Melbourne Bayside suburbs.

MBC-Blint_BoxHill_Kitchen_001aThe kitchen was totally modernised  and features concealed appliances.

MBC-Blint_3IrvingBoxHill008 copyOver 200m2 of extra living space was added upstairs and at ground level, with an extra 100m2 of outdoor living space. The back room that was created spans a large, open space, so the upper storey extension required an efficient structural design to ensure there is no spring in the floor. Another innovative feature of the renovation and extension is a skylight at the top of the stairwell that can be opened, creating a vacuum so hot air escapes and cool air circulates through the house.  Call Blint today to discuss your home renovation, extension or additon of a second storey on (03) 9576 8686.

Ron Blint Bayside Builder For Forty Years

ron blintRon Blint has been in the industry his entire career so the 40 year celebration for Blint Design + Construction in 2012 was a special milestone for him.  Having established Blint Builders (as it was then known)  in 1972 he has been elemental in growing the business.  A carpenter by trade, Ron knows every aspect of a build intimately. His Grandfather was a chair maker and first introduced Ron to carpentry, which began a lifelong career in the building trade.

Ron’s passion is to take ideas and make them flourish into homes, extensions and new spaces that improve people’s lives.  As Kevin McCloud, Presenter on the popular television series ‘Grand Designs’, says “Buildings need Heroes and Heroines or else nothing would ever get out of the ground.”  Ron is one of those Heroes, he sees the vision and brings it into reality. The “buzz” he gets when a client first makes contact, works with Blint and finally moves in to their home is the reward Ron gets the most pleasure from.

Since the early 90’s when he worked with his Mentor Kevin Bolton (now retired) to establish the procedures and methodologies that formed the basis of present practise, Ron has developed an attention to detail in all the building and design procedures and methods that Blint adhere to , that allow a great job to be the norm and not the exception.

Ron ensures that all staff and personnel are constantly updated on new materials, methodologies and building industry trends and that they maintain a strong commitment to personal service. Always available to his staff and clients, Ron will make sure Blint Design + Construction translate your ideas into a house design and construction that exceed your expectations.  Call (03) 9576 8686 to talk to Ron or one of the talented Blint Design team about your ideas for your home.
