Truss House – Geelong West (under construction)
The client, a young family, wanted an extension to their existing double fronted Victorian weatherboard house to accommodate their growing needs. The exterior of the front portion of the house is to be restored to its original form and the extension added to the rear will stand clearly delineated but echoing the character of the old. Inside a new kitchen, living and dining area will feature cathedral style ceilings with roof trusses hand crafted from reclaimed bridge timbers. The rear of the house will also feature large expanses of window glazing looking out to a landscaped future pool area.
