Specialist Auckland bungalow renovations

Auckland bungalows are classically beautiful, compact and come with solid bones – not to mention reasonable subfloor ventilation. Built between 1910 and the 1930s, bungalows retain a timeless appeal, provided they can be renovated to match the modern lifestyle and the needs of a growing family.

Made from native timber, construction quality may vary depending on who built the original house. It’s also common to encounter previous additions and renovations that leave a bit to be desired – what was desirable in the 1950s, 60s and 70s (we’ll leave the 80s out of this), is hardly ever a fit post 2017; think Formica wall units, shag-pile carpets and no outdoor indoor flow.

Other challenges may include the proximity of the toilet from the bedrooms – we don’t keep potties under the bed anymore – lack of light and warmth due to the home’s orientation to the sun, the number of power outlets and location and garaging.

Now more than 150 years old, Henry Brown & Co. is one of New Zealand’s oldest building companies and as such we offer extensive experience when it comes to renovating Auckland bungalows and villas.
