Coastal Cottage

Fresh, beach vibes were the desired aesthetic for this coastal cottage, designed with an open plan indoor/outdoor living area in mind.

The project began with demolition of the existing living room, kitchen, bathroom, rear deck and vegetation. This made room for a split-level extension consisting of a new kitchen and open plan living area.

New internal walls were built in the front area of the house creating four bedrooms and a second bathroom.

The front entry was re-positioned to open up into a wide hallway area, extending past the bedrooms and stepping down into the new open living area.

The split-level design made provision for 3.3 metre high ceilings and a large open bookcase. Timber bi-fold doors were fitted to the rear wall, along with a concealed, retractable fly screen. These doors open up onto a spacious Alfresco area featuring hardwood decking and v-lined high ceiling soffit. The addition of a servery window allows for external kitchen access.

External landscaping including garden walls and a new driveway completed this project.


We found Profile Building team to be professional, knowledgeable and easy to deal with.

The entire build ran smoothly and our 'new home' has turned out better than we could have possibly imagined. The quality of workmanship and attention to detail is second to none
