Raumati bach to permanent home

Living permanently in a bach was a dream come true for this Wellington couple. After testing out the winter on the Kapiti coast  the couple made the bold decision to turn their bach into their permanent home. They took it a step further and didn't renovate the bach but decided to demolish it and build a new permanent home in its place. What a great way to retire! 

Designed by the ADarchiture team, Their new home boasts fantastic outdoor living, perfect for hosting their 3 children and their families.

The dual wing pavilion style home seamlessly connects the outdoor spaces to the interior space. The dining room, lounge, kitchen and scullery, and media room are in one wing, and the master suite, study, two bedrooms, main bathroom, laundry and internal double garage are in the other. This functionally designed home means that it’s perfect for entertaining and hosting guests while also ensuring peace and privacy. Thanks to the  “see through” design of the house, the entrance foyer runs through the middle of the home in between the two wings leading straight to the back of the home to the beautiful outdoors.

After seeing the David Reid show home, the couple fancied the bold contrast of the cedar and Dulux Blackwood Bay black weatherboard for the exterior. This home looks stunning on the inside and the outside!
