Anything is possible! A lifestyle project

A pool pavilion with bean bags floating in the pool

It all started with a conversation and a sketch in the dirt, and this lifestyle project is a perfect example of why anything is possible when creating a space that will enhance your family's unique lifestyle and feel great to spend time in.

This multi-functional barn with living quarters accommodates horse truck storage, two car garaging, workshop and a pool pavilion.  Most importantly it is a space where a lot of fun memories are being made.

We had a huge amount of fun working with our clients on this project and after sharing a few sunny afternoons pool-side with them it became evident just how much enjoyment the barn would bring to the family.

We recently spent an afternoon shooting some video at the property - it is best experienced with sound on.

"Our vision of bringing together the old and the new to create a cohesive and unique property that fits our life and we can enjoy for years to come, has been so beautifully delivered and is now so loved (especially the slide ;) by all. Thank you!" - Nicky & Kelvin

Understandably many after school evenings are spent hitting the water slide!
