In order to maximise the use of an irregularly-shaped block, a good understanding of the building codes is required. Modern Home Improvers designed and built this extension that features a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and ample walk-in wardrobe, a secondary outdoor living area and a double garage. Every valuable square metre is utilised by maintaining minimum setback, and through some clever planning we managed to exceed the clients’ expectations. Sometimes it really pays to know the rules.
