When we love our home and its locale yet it is just not big enough, adding an extension or changing its footprint can solve the problem. Renovating the home can also give it a new look without the price tag of a new build while adding value to the property. KTM Builders Limited specialise in home improvements. With over sixteen years’ residential building experience, owner and operator of the company, Keith Moore has considerable knowledge in the industry. Keith has completed many renovations, transforming older houses into modern, functional homes. He has lots of ideas and can suggest ways to make the most of your floor area, where best to extend, how rooms can be more functional, and how outdoor areas can be transformed to appealing, practical settings. Keith builds decks, pergolas and walls that add character while providing sun shade and shelter from the wind. Whether taking out or moving a wall; building a new kitchen or extending a bedroom or lounge; or updating a kitchen or bathroom, Keith can do the job. He has renovated many little rooms and kitchens, working with designers, directing clients to affordable kitchen manufacturers, or taking care of the whole job himself. As a licensed building practitioner and Site Safe trained registered builder, Keith will manage each stage of a project or work with an appointed project consultant. KTM Builders Limited is a one-stop build shop, from the carpentry work to the plastering, painting, fitting of showers and laying of tiles. Less sub-contractors on the job translates to a faster completion while their own electrical and plumbing contractors will be on the job in a timely manner. Keith and wife, Trish are also active community members having trained four young apprentices in the district who are now carpenters and assisting and sponsoring Southbridge’s Under-Sevens rugby team.

SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday [Edition May 23 datE] 2017 25 5 HOME PROFESSIONALS Create your own amazing outdoor space Amazing outdoor spaces are possible with any section size and The Outdoor Space team have constructed some great features. These include a Schist stone gateway and entrance pillars, with decking that modernised an older home, and constructing decks and pergolas, some with a roof to keep the weather out. One pergola was an extension of a carport that doubled as a covered barbeque area, effectively extending the outdoor living space on a smaller block of land. “We work with a variety of mediums including stone, bricks and timber, as well as completing soft landscaping, from laying lawns to planting out,” advises Aaron Bartlett who with wife, Vicky owns and operates The Outdoor Space. Aaron prefers chunky Macrocarpa for pergolas as it holds its shape better than pine. He says that laminate timber also works well. It looks good stained or has a fresh look when painted to match the house colours. Aaron says Kwila timber decks are very popular, with stainless steel screws used to fix the planks for a better finish. They have also constructed Kwila planter boxes around several decks, some with seating on the top. A couple of interesting creations by The Outdoor Space have been a recycled red brick wall and a fence from an old house wall that incorporated a rustic window. “I really enjoy creating unique and interesting structures,” says Aaron. He likes to sit down with clients to discuss options for their outdoors, bringing their dreams and ideas to reality; completing part of all of job to a client’s budget and timeline, even if it means popping back when required, until the landscaping vision is complete. With lawn sowing season over until spring, the team are available to lay ready lawn for those wanting to avoid the mud over the cooler months. If wanting assistance with a seeded lawn in spring, now is also the time to book in, so The Outdoor Space will have it ready to walk on by Christmas.
