Having renovated homes from $40,000 to $1.2 million and new-built homes from $500,000 to $1.7 million, you pick up a thing or two, including instinctively knowing what clients want and perhaps more importantly, don’t want.
At Barefoot, we strive to add value along every step of the process. A turn-key service is available that can include the initial consultation, plan development, council approvals, design and interior fit-out solutions, landscaping, full construction and project management.
But if you already have plans or your own ideas, we’re happy to work with you on the next stage, taking them off the page and making them a reality.
After years in the high-end, architect-tendered residential building market, Mark Hughes established Barefoot Renovations to focus solely on renovations and additions.
It’s about the way we do business, like the shoe being on the other foot – your foot! It’s about the people – our staff, the team and the clients all working together. Our flexible approach is a reflection of our personalities, which is underpinned by a clear vision of what we aim to achieve.
Cliché as it might sound, we shun the “them and us” scenario that plagues so much of the industry and work openly and freely with our clients for the best possible outcome.
We want you to enjoy the time you spend with us because during planning and construction we’ll become a part of your lives for the time it takes to complete your project.
That means trust and integrity form the backbone of our philosophy. We want you to feel engaged with your project and comfortable with the progress, timing and budget.
Over the years we have taken on board customer comments and concerns and continue to get feedback after every project. It’s you we listen to, which makes the experience better for everyone.
We care about the environment in which we and our families live and to do our bit to preserve it, we carefully dispose of rubbish from each project and, where possible, recycle materials.
We love feedback so if you spot a way we can do this better, we’d love to hear it!
We also regularly donate to the charities below who are developing commercial and social systems and programs to remove plastic from the oceans and our beaches, protect and nurture wildlife and work towards restoring the oceans biodynamic system.
The Ocean Clean-up is developing a passive system, using the ocean currents as its driving force to catch and concentrate the plastic. By suspending a large sea anchor in a deep, slow-moving water layer, we can slow down the system enough so that the plastic moves faster than the clean-up system.

Tangaroa Blue Foundation is an Australian-wide not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the removal and prevention of marine debris. The Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI) was created as an on-ground network of volunteers, communities and organisations that contribute data from rubbish collected during beach and river clean-up events. The AMDI helps communities look after their coastal environment by providing resources and support programs and collaborates with industry and government to create change on a large scale.

We love involving the community where we can and getting your feedback on environmental issues. Feel free to get in touch with anything you think would be useful.
Thanks to the children of Mosman Park Primary School for their amazing contribution to our mesh banners and for all the terrific designs that will help raise awareness of keeping plastic out of our oceans. You’re all budding artists and environmental warriors – you rock!
Thank you to the Girl Guides Troop 1230 for putting us onto this great article. We appreciate your great efforts in working to your Go Green badges and it’s terrific you’re raising awareness of plastics and our ocean environment. Keep up the good work!
