This project was an addition to a stone cottage that has been in the family for generations. The new addition was to keep The Bunkhouse or stone cottage in tact as far as practical, while adding modern functional spaces.
The new addition houses 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with a tea station, and a North deck over a sunroom / entry. The roof form was designed to pay homage to the the stone cottage it serves- a perfect square with a diagonal internal gutter matching the existing stone cottage roof pitch.
The stone cottage was converted into living kitchen and dining room only with a new kitchen added.
TheBuilders.co.nz did a fantastic careful job and were a pleasure to work with. I have to credit them with the detail of the retained and newly incorporated family heights measure in the sunroom.
Thank you to Ben Ruffell ruff.co.nz for the photos.
