The additions to LARQ continue to emerge, with the key materials now being applied.
The plywood internal lining adds beautifully to the dramatic folded roof/ceiling over the double height entry space, that will receive bright morning sunshine as it rises over Mount Owen.
Externally, the king billy pine staves from the demolished Lake Margaret Power Station’s timber pipeline, are being applied to the entry walls – note the varying pattern of ‘stripes’ across the timbers, created by the steel hoop straps that held the pipe together. Even thought these areas of the boards were under tremendous compression, they are now the areas that are least deteriorated and so stand proud of the main surface, as the straps protected the stripes from the many years of West Coast weather.
This small addition for Craig, Bianca and Max enlarges their Kitchen and adds a new living room that means they can now step out into their lovely garden without a journey through their laundry. The stunning Lift and Slide door from Eurotrend makes the new trip into the backyard all the more enjoyable.
With the northeast aspect, the new living room provides a sunny, warm space to start the day and then contributes to the warmth of the whole house for the rest of the day.
Thanks go to the team at Elliott Builders for another successful project.
