The South Coast is well known for its great range of waves, both beach and reef breaks, with a couple of the more famous ones just under an hour from The Shed. Thankfully there are usually plenty of quality waves on offer closer by, with some amazing local talent pushing their skills to the limit at the local beaches. You might even catch locals Sally Fitzgibbons & Owen Wright tearing it up between stops on the ASP World Tour. Whether you’re prepared to get amongst the busier bussle of Werri on weekends or head further up or down the coast to find some quieter quality – you’ll be sure to get some nice ones. And if you’re just starting out, Gerroa is known as one of the friendliest learner waves around!
The kitchen for The Shed was to be part of the open plan living/dining space, so we wanted it to feel light and adaptable, but also work in with the industrial aesthetic. As with everything on this build we wanted something striking but budget considerations meant nothing too pricey. Our architect proposed the idea of using mechanic/tool cabinets for the kitchen storage (instead of joinery), something he had seen at a friends place in up state New York. We were excited, and a little nervous, about this idea right up until we rolled the units into position against the oversized white sub way tile wall. We loved it! Cost effective, flexible, plenty of storage and the look worked perfectly with the industrial style of the house. If we ever want to update or change, we just simply roll them away… or as Dean our builder suggested, “like the Italians do, just take the kitchen with you when you leave’
