Originally the entrance and parking for the house were at the front, taking up the priceless views. We moved the access to the rear and positioned the parking space behind the building. Turning the house around (and the plans on their head) meant that on arrival you were immediately greeted by the striking landscape. The master bedroom, kitchen/diner and living space also benefitted from the move.
From fixtures (like installing a double-sided fireplace that could be seen from the dining area and living space) to fittings (we suggested a movable sofa that would pivot between view gazing and TV watching), the family and their needs were always front and centre in our minds. Being a timber frame kit-house with a timber shingled exterior, it’s no wonder the house was named Timbers. Keeping in character, the extension was constructed by North Coast Log Cabins and the whole facade was clad with cedar.
