Prepare to be impressed as the first completed room of Carrington House opens for online viewing. See how Naomi Findlay has achieved the first milestone in her extensive renovation of this 1880s house with the delivery of a light and elegant bedroom at the front of the house.
The previously dilapidated space has been transformed by adding wooden French doors paired with internally fitted Invisi-Gard security screen doors. While the wooden doors are a glamorous addition to the street-facing façade, Invisi-Gard security screen doors provide the all-important security, ventilation and protection.
It’s time to reveal the second completed room at Carrington House and another stunning bedroom has emerged from the once derelict space.
With a layout mirroring the previously completed room, this second space also features wooden French doors paired with Invisi-Gard screen doors, letting the outdoors in while maintaining light, ventilation and security.
Used as a make-shift office space during the first phase of renovations, the original living room of Carrington House is the next to be completely revived under Naomi’s magic touch. Every element of the room, from the floor joists through to the ceiling, had to be replaced as Naomi and her team worked to bring the room back to life.
From the restored mantle surrounding a new wood burning fire, to the adjacent large format wall tiles and tall wooden sliding doors, heritage and contemporary design elements have come together to deliver Naomi’s vision for a beautiful, calm and relaxing living room.
Choosing the right windows for your home renovation or build
If there's two people who know about the challenges of choosing windows and doors for renovations and new builds, it's well-known home renovator Naomi Findlay and fabricator David Flynn from Cottons Glass and Aluminium. The pair recently got together on Naomi's Reno Radio podcast to discuss how clients and fabricators can best work together to ensure both form and function needs are met.
