It all began with a vision: slipping through the door into a worn yet inviting space; gathering around the fire in muddy boots, with a beer in hand, and debriefing on the day’s adventures.
Reimagined and expertly crafted, this renovation represents the realisation of that vision – and so much more.
There’s no denying the rugged cabin-in-the woods charm of the “breezeway” entrance – you can almost hear the fire crackling. This space features low recycled rimu roof beams, tumbled basalt cobblestones as flooring and huge sliding cedar barn doors to both ends.
Forging into the interior, a more polished take on country life takes hold. Timber sarking ceilings float above the new kitchen/dining space. Decorative walls add character in the three bedrooms. Custom designed bathroom fixtures suit the clients’ tastes perfectly.
Exterior cladding is a contrast of new cedar weatherboard and recycled corrugated iron, stripped off a 100-year-old stable. New cedar trim frames this rustic dreamscape.
