From shack to holiday house
Original shack - Original one bedroom shack with 2 bedroom sleepout with breezeway.
Lots of character, magnificent front veranda for admiring the Hazards mountains and passing sea eagles.
The large gum tree overhanging the house providing easy roof access for the local possums.
Rear - Original two rooms sleepout backing onto the patio
Breezeway between the two buildings providing shelter for a fridge and hanging area for coats.
Interior - Cosy interior, originally with open fireplace which we replaced with large inbuilt wood heater prior to renovation.
The original character showing through again especially during winter when the breeze found its way through the breeze found its way through the cracks in the doors and you could see the stars in the doors and you could see the stars in the night sky from the gaps between walls and ceiling.
Functional use of space combining kitchen, bathrooms, and laundry.
Front of the buildings showing framing for bedroom 1 bay window.
Rear of building showing a large central beam supporting the atrium.
Rear of building and the widening of the original sleepout bedrooms to form bedroom 2.
