Thought we'd have a go at something Art deco. The red timber is Australian red cedar (which isn't a cedar at all) "Toona ciliata". It was nick-named Cedar because it is light and soft and easy to work like traditional cedar. The lighter bits are Poplar. Stuck it behind the dunny for something different.
Don't look now but we've been at it again with a bit of help from Phillip (our nephew). It's so good to have someone who loves to help his uncle out. Anyhow there goes that terrible toilet/laundry area. We stripped out the 2 rooms completely right back to bare bones. With no insulation in the external walls we wanted to get that done while we're at it. The window needed to be shifted and then fill in the frame where the old toilet door was and shift the plumbing around.
Then re-plaster the walls again after a lot of timber frame alterations and get things straight (they definitely didn't build it better back then). Put up some nice "Art Deco" cornice. It's amazing how much it starts to look like a room again once it goes up. There will be a few more embellishments to do next week and that's it. We have ofcourse stuck strictly to the our theme. This theme is hopefully a bit of "Art Deco" mixed with our own special eclectic style (we can't do "Normal") with different types of wood stuff. Most of which Tim has been collecting for years. Hopefully you'll enjoy the difference and have something to talk about.
Here are some more pics for your perusal.
