A Barn with a View

From a barren lakeside section to a charming barn-style holiday home in just one hundred days, Kiwi couple, Hamish and Anita Dodd, have set the new benchmark on the standard of home that can be beautifully crafted on shoe-string budget and an ambitious time frame.

It’s a tough act to follow, one hundred days. But that's all it took from start to finish for Hamish Dodd and his wife, Anita, to transform a small piece of land in Kuratau, situated on the western shores of Lake Taupo, an ancient volcano in New Zealand’s North Island, into a homely-meets-chic-barn style holiday home.

Not one to do things by halves, Hamish, a landscape architect and spatial design specialist (who doubles as a weekend radio host and TV presenter), was on a mission to create a homely Kiwi family bach (holiday home) on a time frame and budget that most would think impossible. But defying all odds, even in the depths of one of Taupo’s harshest winters, he managed to pull it off. And perhaps even exceed any expectations of what could be done given the (self imposed) deadlines.
