We transformed this ageing weatherboard house on Separation Street using contemporary render and spotted gum cladding. Our internal fit-out both extended and revived the space, taking the interior from dull to fresh with the spotted gum kitchen island and crisp white walls. With the addition of windows for light and cross-ventilation, rain water tanks, a backyard deck, and vegetable garden, we believe this sustainable home is the height of modern inner-suburban living.
