shack to chic – lake cathie

A complete redesign of a 1968 built beach shack, whilst keeping the original hardwood framing and footprint….AND  on a budget; That’s the challenge set to the Divas. The fibro shack, in Lake Cathie located on the mid north coast NSW, is an interior design challenge to say the least. The house is only 12 by 6.5 metres but sits on great corner block with a north facing backyard… A ‘renovators delight’.

Michelle Burton came up the with the interior space planning, Linda Perkins drew up the plans and followed through with all necessary council approval requirements. Julie Borger sourced some great value tiles and fittings and Eva Cassegrain has come up with a landscaping solution for the owners’ brief of creating privacy and colour. The skills of the 4 DESIGNING Divas is creating a delightful new seaside home.

The gutting of the interior is now complete, a new slab poured and the shell at lock-up stage. We will keep you updated during the development and be posting ‘under construction’ photographs soon.
