Wairarapa House Alterations & Additions


Wairarapa House Alterations & Additions

Major alterations and additions to an existing Wairarapa farm house, included a new master bedroom wing and garage as well as refurbishing the kitchen and dining area.

Janine worked closely with the clients to achieve the results they desired. The clients' wanted to modernize their solid 1960's house and add some serious space for entertaining and accommodating large family groups.

Plenty of new windows capture the stunning views over Lake Ferry, particularly the new cosy window seat area, which was created by breaking out the north west corner of the existing window.

We are loving our home, it is so lovely to have space! Everything has worked well - the family room gets a lot of comment on its size, view and general ‘wow’ factor
