Why This Fence Gave One Christchurch Homeowner Peace of Mind

Backyard safety: a secure yard for the family.  Babysitting just got easier for Allana, a Christchurch homeowner who has regular visits from her little niece, and Allana’s parents and their dog, Joey. Having recently moved into her new property, Allana set out to ensure it met her family’s needs - and in this case, it meant having a secure yard. The Problem There were two parts to the problem: a small gap on one side of the house, and a privacy fence on the other made up of brick and greenery. While this landscape design added style to the property facade, the access to the road proved tricky to manage with two little ones on the go. The Solution With a fair idea in mind of what needed to be done, Allana posted her job on Builderscrack detailing the project scope. She was after a fencing solution that enhanced the backyard safety to allow peace of mind whenever they were in the backyard. Choosing a Tradie There were four tradies who were interested in the job,

Bench Seating Took This Small Dining Room From Awkward To Cosy

ot an awkward space that can’t be solved with furniture? For Christchurch homeowners Simon and Chelsea, that space was the old dining room. They had ‘tried to make it work’ ever since they purchased their 1990 home four years ago. Enter: bench seating.  With the job now done and dusted, Simon explains to me over the phone just how awesome it’s been chilling out in their new space, sitting in the sun on weekends and sipping their morning coffee. As a fellow chilled out, sun-loving coffee drinker, I knew we had to capture those idyllic scenes for this story. So, our photographer Alana and I went round one Saturday morning with high hopes of two things: sunny weather, and their cat Elphie making an appearance. After a warm welcome, we walk through the kitchen where we’re graced by gorgeous natural light from the high-ceiling skylight, and the sweet smell of freshly brewed coffee. To appreciate the space as it is now, let’s take it back a step. The dining room, before a
