From Sad Shed to Wow Shed!

If you love this space, 
and there is lots to love, 
just wait till you see the before version....
Oh dear.
Could it have potential?
Maybe with a new door???...
Yes, a new door just like that! 
Radiant transformation
And brilliant to keep the inherent beauty of 
this brick and tin roof shed intact in the renovation.
This is how the interior used to look.
And how it looks now,
with the original timber trusses cleaned up,
and zinc soffit retained.

While the masonry walls have been left
with a textured render, 
to highlight the bricks behind 
& create a rustic finish. 
So it is still proud to be a shed, of sorts.
A mezzanine was created to 
house a bedroom & bathroom upstairs.

It is a building filled with warmth & light.
"The Shed", by Sydney architect Richard Peters,
won an Urban Design Award last year.
Not surprising really. 

Clever, don't you think?
