Abbott St House



An existing Edwardian weatherboard house has been beautifully maintained but a previous rear addition to the original house is in need of modification to meet the needs of this young family. The new addition was kept as small as possible to retain the rear garden space and meet Council requirements for site coverage. The main bedroom was extended slightly to provide a robe and ensuite and reworked to obscure views to it from the living area. The kitchen area was relocated to connect to a new outside deck, extending the living space. A new window and skylight is carved into the east side of the house to bring light into the kitchen.
