Former stars of The Block, Kyal and Kara, have just launched their latest project. It’s their very own online renovation series called ‘Toowoon Bay Reno’ and Wideline is proud to say we are supplying the windows and doors for the renovation! The Toowoon Bay renovation gives the couple the challenge of taking on a 1970’s brick home with the goal to transform it into a beautiful 6-bedroom beach house.
Kyal and Kara had been looking for their next property to renovate for a while. When they found ‘the one’ it had only been on the market for 24 hours, so they had to act quickly! The series follows the journey from purchasing the property, concepts and planning through to completion, and we get to share the process along the way.
The house had plenty of challenges as it came with dodgy electrical work and plumbing. And since it had been half renovated, there were no benchtops, hot water system or handrails on the balcony. There’s even no lighting, so the couple have been using flood-lights at night since they are living in it!
We’ll see Kyal and Kara improve every aspect of the home, including replacing the old windows and doors. They’ll show us their window planning and choices through to installation. They’ve chosen a clever mix from our ranges to have windows and doors to suit the function and aesthetics of the room they are being used in. We’ll even see the easy installation of our award winning Halo Aquashield™ range demonstrated by Kyal.
10 episodes will show the process of renovating the whole house - while they are living in it! The first episode was released last week and can be viewed below. To follow the journey of Kyal and Kara’s home renovation head to kyalandkara.com and sign up to receive their fortnightly episodes.
