After seven months our renovation is completed.

What we envisaged to be a terrifying, difficult time was surprisingly smooth sailing …our biggest worry was our budget and renovating within the footprint of our 1890s terrace house which always presents unexpected challenges.

From a Home Show visit, which introduced us to the Site Manager and associated House 2 House team was indeed a great day.

We felt relieved to have an experienced team to guide us through all the phases of our build which can be very daunting.

From initial meetings with House 2 House Joumana Moore (who drove our Project from start to completion ,thank you )…assessing our requirements, to drafting Architectural plans, DA lodgement and securing and ensuring all compliance issues are covered, Scope of Work, Tender process to obtain a builder and fixed price within our budget, and the day to day management of our project.

To ensure a cohesive project we also appointed Joumans’s House 2 House interior design team to design and finish internal finishes of the build. Thank you Nerys and Maddison for your patience and knowledge. Having a person allocated to our job who is experienced in presentation and latest products and able to purchase these items at a best price was a huge relief and reduced the stress and saved us many hours by not having to source items in our build.

With Joumana liaising with the builder, our project progressed swiftly and with no issues. Design and finishes by her team were of a high quality. Our builder was reliable, professional and well organised. Work performed by all trades was excellent.

We are now enjoying our amazing transformed Terrace House which now utilises the space much more efficiently. Living spaces on the ground floor flow together. A new efficient kitchen with plenty light via large skylight with high vaulted ceiling. Lounge  area opening onto a rear garden with light flowing into the area via folding doors. By the removal of part wall with our new renovation to the front rooms of the  house has resulted in these two spaces flowing together.

Main bathroom making better use of space with huge skylight and the ensuite off second bedroom being extended over the new power room on ground floor has resulted in a very high end bathrooms with loads of light.

Would we do it again in the same manner. Yes ! Our renovation delivered on time. Delivered within our budgeted price. Delivered a new life style change which is impressive. Delivered extra value to our home …we are sincerely appreciative of all your efforts and especially to Joumana who took on this challenging job and drove it to its completion.

Should any one be considering a transformation of their home…,happy to chat with you …Joumana has our details.

Friendly, professional and a ‘can do’ attitude best describes this group of people who are House 2 Home.

We are very satisfied with the end result and wish to thank House to Home Finishes, and in particular you two ladies, for the project management and supervision of the renovations – it was a major project, there will be issues in these jobs and there was with ours however throughout there was always respect and consideration between all parties.

We have some wonderful views, and now, a first class renovated apartment where we will be living for the next 20 years.

I have just completed building a granny flat and extension to the rear of my home. The team at House to Home Finishes helped me enormously. They were easy to contact, clearly knew what they were talking about and had good contacts. They helped me choose interior and exterior colour schemes, floor coverings, tiles and various fixtures and fittings. I am more than happy to recommend them
Geoff and Allison, Eastwood
Your professionalism and attention to detail did not go un-noticed by Natasha and me. I very much doubt we would have had the time, patience or contacts to achieve such a superior result. Your hard work and dedication to deliver exactly to Natasha and my specifications was truly amazing.

We engaged House to Home Finishes to provide the interior design for our complete home renovation. This included the renovation to existing bedrooms and bathrooms and the addition of a kitchen, bathrooms and laundry. We are really pleased with the outcome and the quality of the design. The ideas and advice were very effective in coming up with a stunning finish. We found each engagement and consultation collaborative. The network of suppliers, that House to Home Finishes offered, for fittings and finishes were mostly cheaper and of better quality that what we could source ourselves. In fact, we saved more than the cost of the consultation fees in the sourcing of the appliances alone. Having House to Homes engaged with The Site Foreman, and the builder, also helped with the collaboration on our project. This ensured that our whole project was delivered on time within our budget and to our expectations. We would recommend using House To Home Finishes for the interior design, particularly if you are engaging The Site Foreman as well.

From the shopping trips to the price negotiations you and the team at House to Home Finishes were always helpful and could provide us with your expertise when making decisions about the bathroom, kitchen or another part of the house. You gave us helpful tips about colour schemes, showed us examples of what had worked in the past, provided us with a selection of products (with budget in mind) and overwhelmingly made the process of finishing our home easy and enjoyable. The best part is that it looks great! I am confident we got the best price on all products and we had no problems with the arrival and installation of products, even when we made last minute decision changes!

Joumana Moore receives a five star review from us and it is thoroughly deserved. Joumana has provided us with a total service including planning, design, and contact to suppliers. Joumana has always kept our budget requirements in the front of her mind and has given us every opportunity to make decisions based around our budget while also making sure we get the design we have always wanted with a high standard finish.
Joumana has been very flexible where we have made changes and provided excellent advice about how to proceed and the relative cost of things. Joumana is assisted by an excellent team of professionals that help co-ordinate the entire process. We still have our sanity, the build and finish we wanted and its on budget – we are very very happy with Joumana’s service and would highly recommend her to others taking on a renovation journey.
Tom and Darryl, Marrickville
I enjoyed working with Joumana as I found her to be exceptionally reliable and professional. Both she and her sub-contractors were extremely punctual and always let me know if there were to be any unforeseen delays. She was always easily contactable and would return my calls promptly. Her attention to detail was superb and she did not accept work unless it was of the highest standard. She was very honest in her dealings and was always prepared to take responsibility for and rectify any of her sub-contractors work which she did not consider to be acceptable.
Adrienne, Mosman
