Transform your existing home into your forever home
In today’s market, it’s often not an option to move to a bigger, better house – especially when you love your area and local community. Instead, many of us now look to remodelling, adding levels, extensions or developing basements to create our dream home – but projects of that scale can be a scary prospect.
MyHome Renovations was launched to make it easier – and less stressful – for Aucklanders to transform their existing homes to better fit the changing needs of their families. We’ve been in the business of renovating and remodelling homes for more than 20 years and have won several awards while working as part of a franchise renovation company.
We’ve also extensively renovated two homes of our own, so we get how hard it can be – the initial excitement and anticipation, then nervousness, confusion and feeling overwhelmed that can follow. It can take constant chasing, waiting, researching, querying, discussing, debating, finalising, revising – and that’s just the design phase!
Our expertise helps remove all that uncertainty and risk. Essentially, MyHome Renovations makes the prospect of renovating your home fun and exciting.
A home to share
MyHome Renovations will help you navigate the complex – and often bureaucratic – building process from your initial design concept to the final council sign-off of your newly renovated home. Our end-to-end service is designed to reduce the stress and anxiety and remove the uncertainties – so all you have to do is enjoy your beautiful home.
