Alterations to a Lowry Bay Cottage

A well-lit wall space was required for the display of paintings and prints, together with a fitting for books and the display of pottery.

An existing bedroom was enlarged and storage space provided underneath by raising the floor 4 feet.

The existing kitchen facilities were found to be inadequate, so it was enlarged and a new dresser and laundry provided.


Exterior weatherboarding is New Zealand larch. The new timber floor in the living-room is polished tawa boarding. The interior walls and ceiling are finished with fibrous plaster.

The builder was Mr. L. Bird.
