Kyal and Kara selected COLORBOND® steel for their Long Jetty Reno

We were proud to partner with former The Block contestants, Kyal and Kara Demmrich on their 'Long Jetty Reno' project which was completed and sold in 2017. This project featured COLORBOND® steel Surfmist® Matt in the profiles LYSAGHT KLIP-LOK® and CUSTOM ORB®. Of the colour selection says Kara, "COLORBOND® steel Surfmist® Matt was chosen because it's soft, subtle and a bit more refined".

Long Jetty Reno came about after Kyal and Kara completed the renovation of their own home in Toowoon Bay and were on the hunt for a new project. After looking at many homes, they purchased a nearby beach house and quickly set about planning a renovation to transform this into the ideal family home with a "Palm Springs" vibe. In selecting the material for their roof, gutters and fascia, COLORBOND® steel was again at the top of their list after using COLORBOND® steel Windspray® for the roof of their own home.

    Throughout this partnership we also chatted with Kyal and Kara about how they decide on materials and their reflections of their time on The Block:
