As your North Shore builders and designers, Leonard Construction & Design can create all types of house extensions, from grand designs to simple solutions:
- Adding a garage, bedroom or en-suite.
- Extending upwards to add another storey to a home.
- Building a granny flat or minor dwelling for an ageing parent – or for extra income.
- Converting an attic space into a liveable room.

New home building

Or are you thinking of demolishing the existing house to create a new house or two?
Leonard Construction and Design are a North Shore design and build team who can help you with all the stages of the new home building process.

House Recladding for Leaky Homes
If you are dealing with a leaky home – we understand just how stressful this is. And we’re here not only to do a great job on your house recladding, but also to make the whole process as easy and quick for you as possible.
There are a number of factors causing leaky homes, however a major problem was the use of cladding systems. These cladding systems relied on the paintwork as being the primary line of defense against water ingress. So just a small crack in the cladding or paintwork would allow moisture to enter the building envelope, rotting out the timber framing. And to make matters worse, during this era the timber framing was not adequately treated to withstand moisture.
The home building process and home renovation process
Leonard Construction & Design offers you a flexible service to design and build homes – you’ll enjoy with a full and seamless service that’s tailored to your needs. If you’re wondering what’s involved in renovating, extending or building a home, here’s a guide to the building process.
The first step to design and build your home is to arrange a FREE consultation with our experienced team.
As your North Shore home builders and designers, we’ll take care of the whole building process for you.
These projects were managed very smoothly from start to finish, as we were able to use Michelle Leonard for design ideas, and her mother Sandy Rogers to do all the plans and make sure we had all the documents we needed for the council processes. It was fantastic to have Sandy, Michelle and Adam all onsite at the start of each project to discuss our ideas and come up with a plan.
We would not hesitate to recommend the Leonard Construction team to anyone doing a renovation.”
