As we near the end of Seaside Lodge’s renovation, it’s fun to look back at some of the pictures we took when we first wielded a mallet.
We’ve nearly finished inside – another fortnight and it’ll be tip top. A perfect bolthole to relax and unwind in.
Now we’re finishing the exterior and garden. There’s painting, new cedar cladding, a dining/sitting deck over the lake, and the garden to landscape. With lots of coastal plants and grasses in soft yellows and blues.
So, although there’s still the finishes touches to complete, here are some before and (almost) after pics:
Both of the privies at Seaside Lodge are now a lot more private. There are two lovely bathrooms at Seaside Lodge, both with showers, one with a big, deep bath.
Let there be light
That pile of insulation is now in the walls, and the original 1950s window over the south is flooded with light. There’s a quiet sitting area up here, with heaps of good books, games and DVDs to while away a quiet afternoon not spent on the beach.
Goodbye, plastic accordion door.
We’ll kind of miss that door. (No, we won’t)
A window to the west
Seaside Lodge’s kitchen is in the middle of the large open plan living space – 2 big sitting areas north and south and a dining/writing/study area to the east.
Now, a room with a view.
The master bedroom at Seaside Lodge now has another window, so you can wake up to the tranquil view over the lake. There’s an en-suite shower room too.
