WPC: Object

This week Cheri asks us to use an object to tell a story in our photograph. I have chosen a house, lovingly created over 20-odd years by the owner builder.house

It is shown here closed up, resting in the bushland setting where tall old red gums surround it, visited mostly by animals and birds. Every six weeks or so the owners or others arrive, open the big shutters and enjoy the beach house. Stuart did the design many years ago, so we love seeing it complete, tucked in amongst the giant gums, on the block beside Dadirri.

  1. Love the loft right up in the trees – great for birdwatching. Must be so satisfying for Stuart to see his design enjoyed 🙂 I have become hooked on Grand Designs Australia – it fascinates me what people put themselves through to build their dream homes, and I find the ideas around sustainability, etc, really interesting.

    • yes, I understand BB … this house is passive solar and sustainably built using local materials where possible (timber and stone) … polished concrete slab floor and beautiful internal timber work … it is like a huge sculpture where everything was carefully crafted and perfected … but now it is in use too, after many years!

    • There are ocean glimpses, looking over the canopy out to sea. The main sensation is being at the tree tops, where all the birds and possums and others come and go. It is lovely, very simple, and functional.

  2. ciao cara Cristina, ti ritrovo con gioia dopo essere stata assente dal blog, la piccola casa deliziosa realizzata fra gli alberi è un incontro dolcissimo con la quiete e la poesia, un vero incanto!
    un forte abbraccio
