The Australian House- Vineyard House

The Australian House by Anna Johnson and Patrick Bingham-Hall

How exciting is this........ Our friends came across an architectural book featuring some of my gorgeous hubby's talented carpentry work and on closer inspection found his craftsmanship had featured on the FRONT COVER!!! (I am so so proud). He worked on this house on the Mornington Peninsula for architect John Wardle. The idea behind the post was to depict the winegrower's practice of grafting new rootstock to existing rootstock. It was actually done with a chainsaw because the timbers were so large. The timber is Australian spotted gum, with the bottom timber oiled and the top left natural.

PS. Last time...but I am so excited for him and soooo proud, what an achievement!
