In exciting news... my super talented sister and her husband have just completed their stunning house in Turners Beach, Tasmania and it was just recently aired on Grand Designs Australia.
My brother in-law Nigel is a Draftsman and a conservationist at heart – a passion he shares with my sister Nina, a school teacher. They love the natural environment and have managed to secure one of the last remaining native bush blocks in Turners Beach, a beachside suburb on Tasmania’s north coast.
Nigel was determined to keep their block in its natural state, by hoping to keep as many trees as possible and to build around them. And then he took it one step further, by making a feature of the tallest tree on the site – a 30 metre eucalyptus, a tree he had always planned on incorporating into the build.
The result is a house at one with nature, that seamlessly floats among the trees and makes you feel like you are always on holiday… and trust me when I say that the window box is mine whenever I step foot into their home!
