Upstairs, where the volume is provided by raked ceilings tucked beneath the gable, they agreed to the 2.4 metre stud.
With the build process well on its way, Terri has been kept busy choosing colours to personalise her family’s forever home.

When Box visited the site and flew their drone into the sky above to survey the surrounds, the pictures showed a peek of the sea.
Now that the main bedroom is built, the wraparound corner windows offer a vista across suburbia with a big, wide tide clearly visible in the near distance.
“The steel eyebrows on the windows really draw the eye out to the water,” says Terri.
A surprise yes. But a good one.
