Two existing shed buildings on this coastal farm were given a new lease of life through a renovation that included re-walling and re-roofing the two structures. Louvre windows were added to the above stable accommodation to provide excellent cross flow ventilation to the sixty square metre studio. Also added was wall and ceiling insulation, water tanks and a covering to the existing deck. The existing kitchen and bathroom were replaced by simple low maintenance joinery. The external deck was renovated to create an outdoor space that captures views of the farm valley and ocean beyond.
