The renovation & extension of this classic Victorian cottage, on a narrow site with tight planning controls, provides much needed space for a growing family. The lower level was built with recycled bricks on an 'ecoblend' concrete slab, providing thermal mass, while the upper was clad in shiplapped cypress pine weatherboards. All windows are sashless with double glazing throughout to retain the warmth of the hydronic heating.
