ImageCOMPLETED PROJECT

This inner urban cottage is one of a pair. This was lucky, because the work here entailed reconstruction of the original verandah, of which there were few traces left after removal of a sleep-out which had been built across the facade of the dwelling.

Work started at the bottom, with the rebuilding of the verandah, re-using the original bull-nosed slate edging and laying a short rubn of tiles commissioned to reproduce the much-deteriorated originals.

Next, new timber verandah posts made to the pattern of those on the sibling cottage next door were installed.

Work continued until the entire verandah had been reproduced. A picket fence was added, and the garden landscaped by the owner.
