Here are catch-up photos of the old cottage’s progress. We’re almost at the point where the fun part begins with the furnishings and accessories! In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the progress.
The front living room is taking shape,the old cooker has been restored and the new firebox is almost complete.
How is this for a hand towel hook? It’s an old convict nail found in the old building.
Door architrave in the style of the period
The design of the bathroom echoes the old elements found in the original – note the timber posts and beams.
The hot water system if tucked away out of sight behind the fantastic recycled timber cabinet
A closer look at the old cooker and new firebox
The wall cladding is looking great with a coat of fresh paint – the Antique Oak flooring from Parmate look great in this space

Claw foot bath, antique Kauri vanity and bespoke mirror found at Bathurt Mart on the Vale Road
and beautiful copper fittings – the “Out-Shed” never looked better!
