Lachie & David travelled south this past weekend to source some material to complete House Roux.

The steel awnings which project from the exterior walls of the house will be filled with rough-cut sticks scavenged from gum tree stands on a Margaret River property. These will be fabricated into frames and fitted into the awning structure.

The awnings will protect the house from overhead sun in Summer, and provide broken light through the sticks in the cooler months. The wood will aesthetically tie back into the garden and privacy screens, seeking to link the house back into the site, which was once home to towering red gums.

This photo shows just some of the spoils of the harvest. Check out progress shots of this great family home, and come back soon to see the final result.
