Our clients Rodney & Melinda came to us in September 2018 with a renovation project in one of Newcastle’s most desirable locations. After reviewing the DA approved plans, it became evident that in order to realise the sites full potential, considering its blue ribbon location and orientation to the North, a re-design of the homes extension was required.
Stuart recommended a ‘Cathedral’ ceiling extension, including oversized glass sliding doors to the rear of the home to take full advantage of the Northern sun. This concept was recommended to replace the raked ceiling extension and much smaller glass opening that was designed.
The result – a Kitchen/Dining/Lounge Living space and central hallway bathed in Natural light all year round!
Stuart and his team commend Rodney & Melinda for their determination to preserve the historical integrity of the home.


We engaged Stuart from Roddy Constructions during the 2018/2019 period for approximately 15 months to build and restore our beautiful 1905  Merewether home back to its former glory, reflecting the elegance of a bygone era.

From the moment Stuart commenced work with us, our home became a labour of love in a very detailed, quality build to achieve the results we needed to give this beautiful home the respect it deserved.

Throughout the project, Stuart liaised with Plan Drawers, Council Inspectors and all necessary contractors to maintain smooth progress of the build.

Stuart always maintained great communication, reliability, advice and involvement throughout the entire project, which was wonderful, with the emphasis on quality being first and foremost of importance.

Our aim for this home was definitely achieved, we love and are very proud of our beautiful home, with big thanks to Stuart and his team.

Thank you again Stuart!
