Scaled Down

Having been a family home for many years, this house was damaged in the Christchurch earthquakes of 2011 and only now is approaching demolition to make way for a new build on the site. It started life as a bungalow from the 1930s but since then it has been added to numerous times to keep pace with family needs. 

The rear of the house faces north and has a courtyard of brick pavers which provides a sunny outdoor living area leading to the garden beyond.This family home will be missed, but the promise of a new building with all the comforts of year-round warmth and permanent materials more than compensates.
