We have some exciting news to share that we have been holding off announcing until the final bits of paperwork had been signed. But now that everything has been finalised, we can let the cat out of the bag! Barry House is going to be featured on Restoration Australia on ABC! We are very excited to have this opportunity to document the ups and downs of the restoration process and to watch the transformation process in the resulting one hour long documentary. Barry House is a special part of Brunswick history (check out our previous post about 'The Process of Beginning a Project' for more info about the history of the house) and it is our family home, so it holds an extra special space in our hearts.
Tomorrow (27th of November) the first filming session takes place at Barry House! We have been madly preparing for the arrival of the film crew and will have our first interview tomorrow! The crew will primarily be focusing on capturing the current state of the house as it is. This will be so interesting to see once the house is complete. They will ask us questions relating to the condition of the house and what our plans are. We will let you know how it goes!
In other news, the wonderful women at Mani Architecture have finalised our plans after going back to the drawing board to make a few changes. We were absolutely thrilled with the initial direction, however wanted to make a few changes to the living space to suit how we use our living space currently. We asked for a butlers pantry for somewhere to store our baking equipment, bulky appliances and to hide dirty dishes when guests come over! We also have big dinning nook to host our family dinners and have opted for a smaller laundry as this isn't something that takes up a lot of space in our home currently and it works well, so we didn't feel the need to take up valuable real estate with the big laundry.
We got the revised plans back and couldn't be happier! Mani totally nailed our brief and we are becoming more and more excited to see this home come to fruition in 2020!
