Period Homes

Melbourne’s Period Homes

From Art Deco to Federation, Melbourne’s older period homes have wonderful features that make them unique.

Often though these homes don’t accommodate today’s way of living. To have an extra room, an ensuite, a walk-in robe or even an entire extension would be great.

When you renovate with M.J.Harris Carpentry, every detail in what we do is designed for your home. We build to recreate and enhance what you already have, so it fits in perfectly with the style and design of your existing home.

Trust the experts

We work with you and listen to your ideas. Then we’ll create a preliminary design. We hone and redraw the design to make sure that when it is time to build, we are creating what you want and most importantly, what you need.

With today’s strict council regulations, we will work with your council to keep within their strict guidelines to deliver an outcome. We consult with you the entire time so that we can meet both your and their requirements. With our own team of plumbers, electricians and plasterers who specialise in traditional plastering, we have the complete job covered.

Even when decorating, with M.J.Harris Painting, our colour consultant can ensure that we deliver a colour scheme that will fit in with the period features you’ve lovingly restored.

Really great job guys

Luke pulled down our back pergola and rebuilt it as it was unsafe, rotted and falling down. I was surprised at how quickly it went up.

No job was too small

The final result looks great, and my first home is now my dream home. Thanks to Mike and the boys for a job well done.
