Our next project...

I wanted to share with you all our new home. After spending the past year umming and ahhing about whether we should move, we finally found a house that ticked enough of the boxes. We have left our home of 14 years and after renovating and extending our beautiful family home we decided that the needs of our family have changed and so its time to move on...

Here is our next project, a Pole house clad in Cedar designed by architect Kevin Borland and built in 1977. The home is in original condition and has wonderful views out over Port Phillip Bay. We loved this home because it is filled with light and lots of interesting angles and curved walls. Our first project will be to bring the pool back to life as it has been used as a fish pond so it still has goldfish swimming in it! The house has so much potential to bring it back to its former glory and we want to retain the charm of the building - after all thats what appealed to us in the first place. Heres a sneak peak at some of the house. xFaith
