Country Living at its Finest


Modern touches to rustic materials

This custom build is a truly unique family home.  It was a joy to create such bespoke residence with so many elements. From the Castlemaine stone fire place and feature wall, to salvaged features from North Melbourne train station, Havenswood is filled with character, warmth and charm.


This unique timber frame was hand build using traditional carpentry techniques that have stood the test of time for thousands of years.
The logs were harvested from a stand of Cypress Macrocarpa that adjoined Daylesford cemetery and locally milled into dimensions suitable to the design.
This heavy timber frame uses no nails, the mortise and tenon joints were hand made using razor sharp tools and a small chainsaw. Pegs or dowels are used to lock the joints together, the curved knee braces provide stability to the frame.
