Redesdale house renovation
This is a California Bungalow style country home with an extension designed to create a view over the garden to the North and West and generous views of the Campaspe River Valley to the North
Spotted gum timber decking and subfloor cladding provide a natural base for this rural home extension. The covered deck area for an outdoor eating directly off the Kitchen provides a direct transition from indoor to outdoor living
This area provides ideal outside dining and entertaining in an insect proof area. The ceiling fan provides thermal comfort in hot summer evenings.
Cedar window and door frames in a "weatherboard" lined cement sheet provide suitable fire rating.
Being in and above the garden were two key principles of the client brief. This view from the North West indicates that the outdoor eating and deck areas provide a platform for both distant and near views of the immediate garden area.
By following the line of the roof structure this space is opened up to provide maximum internal area and some character provided by the remnants of the structural form.
The shade plus views of garden and landscape, when combined with insect control from screens to the North and West will make this a very popular entertaining space
A spacious living area with access to the North deck has emerged from a hectic combination of small rooms and a corridor
