“My wonderful dad and I have created a totally unique space, where the design is based on our childhood home and Dad’s specialty is using as much reclaimed materials as possible,” said owner Tiffany.
The interior styling has been given a “farmyard-chic” look that reflects the rural environment and the materials used. This space is made entirely of pallets and other reclaimed wood, with the unique edition of Lysaght tin from my boyfriend’s old roof – seriously, this tin is like a fine wine, it gets better with age.
The cabin has uninterrupted views of the beautiful grasslands and is the perfect place out of the elements to enjoy a book or even better; enjoy a cheese plate and a glass (or bottle) of wine, while watching the spectacular sunsets. ‘
