A $270,000 extension over seven-months including a new rumpus room, gym, laundry and fish tank to utilise the impeccable views of the local river and landscape.

WORDS Clare Chapman PHOTOGRAPHY Wayne and Anna Gordon


While the extension was fairly straight forward construction-wise, Wayne says ensuring the design was right from the beginning made a huge difference. “Getting the design right, especially with the orientation of the extension, was a major part of the success of this project. The clients also hired a container, which was kept on site throughout, in which to store their furniture while the renovations were underway. It was a lifesaver for them. So many people doing bigger extensions like this say they wish they had done that, so we are recommending it now for the larger renovations.”
