Originally built in the 1900’s, this house was damaged in the 2011 Christchurch Earthquake and is finally getting a well deserved makeover. When completed it will retain its original character with the chimneys being reinstated, repainted, and completely reclad internally. It is interesting to see what the original house (black and white photo) looked like, and what the completed project will be. Watch this space!
Update July 2017: Re-levelling completed, new linings installed, all new electrics, plumbing and exterior painting just about completed. Outside steps remade, and new garage erected and signed off. New quake safe chimneys to be installed by the end of July. This restoration is coming along nicely.
November 2017: Four New Quake Safe Chimney’s have installed, Wallpaper is being hung, New heritage electrics is completed, and new plumbing in installed. Exterior has been repainted to homeowners choice, so just waiting on Carpets to be laid. Shouldn’t be long now for the homeowner to move back in.
December 2017: Job done and homeowner moved back into the house, ready for Christmas.
