Sometimes best laid plans (or elevations) come up short. Being able to swing by the showroom and shake hands with a local supplier is invaluable. Thanks @stonesourcellc for saving the day with 12 tiles to finish the pattern.

The brainstorming begins again - first on the list, plantation shutters and systems. We want maximum light, but also require the ability to control the amount of bay breeze (crazy strong) we get through the house. We love our bay breeze, but sometimes it tries to blow us all out the front door! #plantationshutters #queenslandworkerscottage #workerscottagerenovation

Custom made breakfast bar for morning and drinks bar for night or morning, whatever floats your boat😆! The beauty of this bar, it isn't only perfect for entertaining family and friends for those beautiful spring and summer months, it's perfect for small spaces, it was handmade using reclaimed hardwood with castors to allow for easy maneuver to the outdoor living space and subway tiling was beautifully finished by RW tiling to achieve a nice clean surface while also flowing with the splashback tiles in the kitchen..#custom #handmade #furniture #furnituredesign #reclaimed #recycled #reclaimedwood #hardwood #breakfastbar #rwtiling #subwaytiles #drinkstrolley #outdoorbar #retro #vintage #kitchendesign #renovation #smallspaceliving #smallspaces #workerscottage #beachshack #clontarf #workerscottagerenovation #queenslanderhome #interiordesign #outdoorspace #indooroutdoorliving #summertime #bbqfeast #familyandfriends

Well! Stage 1 of our project is pretty much complete, and just in time for the arrival of our newest Ruffbat. Which signals time for us to recollect, regather & refocus before launching into Stage 2 next year 🙌 Huge thanks to everyone involved in the project, special shout outs to Ray @ray13f (Bay Built Constructions) for being generally awesome 👏 and to our folks for all the free labor 😬, babysitting & pep talks. Ya’ll rest up for round 2 okay! Stay tuned... plenty more to come in the meantime! xx @ruffbat_cottage

I was a bit excited today to walk through a 1907 Queenslander that has been butchered over the last 50 years, but will be magnificent under a kind and sympathetic touch. The high ceilings, vj walls, timber floors, fretwork and picture rails are quintessential, but having renovated a few now, I can attest that each one has it's own personality just waiting to be teased out 💗 From our North St #1 reno project 🏡

Those stairs 😍 Featuring Voss floors from @woodcut_aus, the stairs were “designed to hang within the space allowing light to pass through deep into the ground floor living areas, which otherwise receive very little natural daylight” 👌🏻 Birchgrove House Designed by @passer_architects Built by @adonprojects 📸 by @_pabloveiga
