At long last our plans for our extension on the North side of the house and renovations to kitchen and bathroom have come back from Lateral Draftinga nd are in at Council for approval.
The original idea has changed somewhat with innovative input from Lateral Drafting. We are now looking at a large family room/studio space that will have a skillion butterfly roof with lots of north facing glazing to catch the winter heat from the sun. The room is seperated from the original house by a small skillion roofed extension that will be clad in Macrocarpa pine and will have a pair of doors to replace our current back door. This will also be our dining area.
The roof of the main extension is going to be of Colorbond steel as is the Western wall and under the Eastern windows. The walls are going to be a dark red and the roof light grey. We have found a fantastic recycled flooring product and internally walls will be clad in painted masonite as it is a natural product with no glues etc.
Windows will be double glazed and hopefully made from recycled Tassie oak. The outside decking is still being researched.
