Very impressive and beautifully done. So great not to see another knock down rebuild with a McMansion occupying the entire block.

love this story as it echoes what we are wanting to accomplish with our small 70sqm cottage. Worked hard with our architect to maximize the use of every inch in our limited space, and managed to add a 3rd bedroom and built-in wardrobes! Kept within existing footprint and have kitchen and exterior left to do. Have always liked the idea of a wrap-around decking, but hard to visualize if that would work for us, ie aesthetics vs functionality vs security, as the entry to our property require visitors to walk past our bedrooms first. Seeing what has been achieved with this cottage has given me more inspiration on the matter. And I'm liking the idea of trees in the deck not just for aesthetics but also for privacy.
