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.

It has been awhile since I posted something on my blog!

After travelling for a couple months in France and England, I returned home to complete even more study. This was a publishing design course and my submitted project was called Adapt Transform Reuse. It is designed to raise awareness of my home towns heritage buildings, and their threat from an updated land use plan. I photographed examples of buildings that have been given a new lease on life and hoped readers would consider what society may have lost if these buildings had been subjected to the wrecking ball.

Once again we were in Tairua, but this time for Valentines…our view was spectacular and the moon added to the romance…
