ABOUT THAT BUD­GET…

Homes+ (Australia) - - READERS’ HOMES -

Af­ter a hor­ror bud­get blow-out at the ini­tial stages of con­struc­tion, when ex­ca­va­tion went deeper than ex­pected to find solid rock for the foun­da­tions, Lucy and Steve had to look out for money savers. They found bam­boo floor­ing more af­ford­able than tim­ber floor­boards, con­verted the en­suite bath­tub from tra­di­tional claw­foot to built-in, and used pre-pan­elled VJ board­ing in­stead of more labour-in­ten­sive tra­di­tional boards.
