I’ve been looking through my archived photos and found this beauty from when we purchased our property on Waiheke.

This shows the original bach that we fell in love with…no running water, an outhouse with a “bucket and chuck it” for a loo, and rotting weatherboards!

So we began the huge task of renovating, which, as my Mum said, grew like topsy and really became a full rebuild.

We did manage to keep the original floorboards and 3 x internal walls…but the rest had to go.



  1. An amazing transformation – you did so well and so much hard work
