It was great to finally get back to the Barrier last weekend and find the Cottage driveway finished at last.

The latest addition to the Sunshine Cottage deck. A coffee table made from flotsam that has washed up on the beach over the last three years.

Beautiful evening to enjoy our first bbq at the Sunshine Cottage

Sammy is pretty happy with the new bridge. Made from old Matiatia Wharf timber. Glad that we found a new home for these at the Cottages.

26/12/2019

The Sunshine Cottage is finally ready for the arrival of our first guests.

It’s a happy day when the faulty tap is finally working!

Finally putting the finishing touches on the Sunshine Cottage

04/11/2019

Not all DIY projects are the easy ones! This one to trench power to the Moose Cottage was certainly one of the more challenging projects!

02/11/2019

After months away it is great to finally be back putting the finishing touches on the sunshine cottage.

11/07/2019

The Sunshine Cottage is starting to take shape. The green tiles are amazing in the bathroom and the polished floors are stunning. We are finally on track for being finished in time for summer

07/06/2019

The Sunshine Cottage is all cleared out ready to floors to be sanded next week. Can’t wait to see the transformation

07/06/2019

I just came across this original photo of the Sunshine Cottage in a new book by Dave Watson on Barrier Baches. This cottage had been partly renovated when we first bought the cottages so great to come across a photo of the original cottage. She looks a little different now, but I hope we have restored some of the original character

Exciting to see some grass making an appearance a few weeks after planting

27/04/2019

Madi & Zach made fast work of the grass seed at Sunshine Cottage. Fingers crossed we will have lawn for next summer.

27/04/2019

A very kind neighbour dropped in at the airport when we were leaving today to give us an old painting that Alice had done of her cottages to add to our collection of cottage paintings. Thank you Dave

26/04/2019

We are pretty pleased with the transformation of the old laundry shed into the solar power shed

25/04/2019

Jas has been spending a fair amount of time up ladders to patch up the old laundry. It’s all ready for a coat of Sprout Green today

25/04/2019

Sunshine Cottage is starting to take shape with the new lawn about to go down today

06/04/2019

The new driveway is looking great (and it survived the torrential rain last night)

10/02/2019

Another big DIY weekend at the cottages. Arms will be aching all week from all the shovelling!

20/01/2019

Our biggest success story of the summer DIY projects was the Sunshine Cottage kitchen. Although without Tony’s expertise I am not sure we would ever have gotten the bench top or sink to work!

20/01/2019

Great to come across yet another artist’s impression of the Moose cottage. Discovered in a neighbours Bach

20/01/2019

The moose cottage has been returned to its former glory.

19/01/2019

After a long summer on the paintbrush the cottage transformation is finally taking place

Sunshine Cottage might be a construction zone but Moose cottage is starting to look like a perfect getaway
