How to turn a 1920’s Bungalow from cold and draughty to warm and toasty!

“My children and I have lived through 10 cold winters in our 1920’s Californian bungalow. It was time to do something about it. Our home not only needed a significant renovation, we also wanted it to be warmer and healthier. Now we have it all!”

– Denise Culley (Homeowner)

In 2010, Denise moved into her Mount Albert bungalow with 2 young children. The house was generally tidy and well maintained having had some minor modernisations in the 1990’s. Those changes were the wrong way around though with the laundry on the sunniest corner of the house. Also, the house was cold, especially the bedrooms. It was time for a change.

Seeking advice from architectural friends, builders and Nick Hall of Enstall, Denise embarked on making her house really perform; not only in function by taking advantage of the north facing aspect, but also to improve energy efficiency and comfort by implementing simple improvements.
