NZ House & Garden - - HOMES -

Proud­est DIY mo­ment: Bruce painted the en­tire in­side of the house him­self. It took him months of stand­ing on scaf­fold­ing. The beam­work was metic­u­lously done – a pro­fes­sional-level fin­ish we're both so pleased with.

Big­gest de­bate: The snug paint colour. Bibby & Brady sug­gested a deep blue colour and it took some con­vinc­ing (mostly Bruce). They were of course right – the deep colour cre­ates a warm and cosy space.

We fin­ish our work days: Sit­ting out­side in our yard with our four res­cue bun­nies.

A must-do when you visit the area: Te Awanga Es­tate Winery presents bands dur­ing the sum­mer. Just rock up on a Sun­day af­ter­noon with a pic­nic, buy a bot­tle of wine, and en­joy.
