Courtyard at a renovated 1850s Melbourne prefab cottage

Keeping the original home intact, the team added to the existing structure to create a U-shaped layout that surrounds an open courtyard. The deteriorating old roof was replaced with a custom galvanized steel Orb roof by Lysaght, and the entire rear façade was wrapped with clean white BGC Durascape cement sheeting. A life-size plastic cow, found at the home when the couple bought it, became a permanent fixture in the yard.
