The Lime House Land Before

This was a development project, so budget was an important consideration.  Relatively small structural changes were made, but ones that had a large impact on the light, layout and usability of the spaces. 

The footprint of the house remained the same, but the dual pitch roof was replaced with a gable end roof with large dormer windows, adding 2 bedrooms, an ensuite and a large family bathroom to the first floor.

Natural light is brought into the ground floor kitchen and shower room through light slots. South-facing rooms are shaded from the sun by blinds integral with the triple-glazed windows.

The materials were carefully selected to transform the house in a cost effective way, including the western red cedar timber cladding.
