Trendy Te Atatu

A small 80’s house owned by a young couple with one child.

The clients wanted to modernise their home whilst still complementing the house’s existing style, and add more space.

RUSA renovated the dining and living area with bespoke joinery, which required structural steel. We also added an extension to the back of the house which included coloured concrete, underfloor heating, cedar joinery, fire boundary walls, and a new master bedroom and living area with a wraparound deck to bring together the existing building with the new.


“Kent and the Rusa Construction team are consummate craftsmen who have been involved with making our tiny house into our dream home. Three separate projects of ours have been dealt with efficiently and professionally with more than one hurdle being overcome through constant communication and inventive thinking.

We will certainly be engaging with the Rusa team for any future work and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality building work.

Hopefully we’ll be staining the deck this weekend and we’ll fire through some photos! I have a reminder set (actually it goes off every weekend) to do the deck and take photos.”
