Our Area - Melbourne

Since 1840 to today, Melbourne has taken form from a small settlement to a vibrant city. It is the capital and most populous city in the state of Victoria and the second most populous city in Australia with a population of over 4.1 million people and growing.

Renovations have always been a popular choice compared to that of building a new home amongst many Melbournians. Several reasons stand out why this choice has been so prevalent amongst the community, some being cost factors other simply allowing residents to stay grounded in the areas they have chosen to raise their families.  It is not uncommon for families to reside in the same neighborhood as their parents or even grandparents.

The trend for renovations in later years has been to incorporate outdoor and indoor living incorporating the use of “alfresco” areas. This has been quite a task for Melbourne builders and designers as there are many aspects to consider with vast variations in the weather from day to day or even morning to afternoon. Here at Smith and Sons we take all of this into account when we sit down to discuss your home improvement options one on one.
