The best projects always take their surroundings into account. A building really needs to be aware of the space in which it stands, particularly when that space is the bush lands around Mount Buffalo.
We had a client come to us who wanted to build a simple, small home on their forest property. They had already consulted with designers and architects, so they were able to give us a very detailed idea of what needed to be built.
We worked with those ideas to find the most practical, most efficient and highest quality way to build their dream building.
The project came together perfectly. What we like most about the home is its long, thin layout. The length of the building against the gentle slope of the ground gives the elegant impression that the building has been nestled into its beautiful surrounds.
Building a workshop in New Zealand
In Waimakariri, Fernside, New Zealand, there is not a steel-framed workshop built with steel fabricated in Kyneton, Victoria.
We sent over a steel package in a shipping container. When it arrived in New Zealand, the project was constructed by Tuatara Structures.
Using a four-crane lifting method, the construction of the shed went ahead excellently.

How to make a horse-hair tassel
Horse hair tassels are beautiful, meaningful and simple to make. They make a wonderful gift and a perfect forget-me-not.
To make a horse hair tassel you’ll need the following things:
- 30 cm of horse hair.
- Waxed twine.
- Leather trim.
- Leather rope.
- Strong glue.
And here’s how to do it:
- – Fold your horse hair in half and tie some wax thread about 3 cms below the fold.
- – Line the inside of a section of leather trim long enough to wrap around the tassel. Wrap it around, making sure the trim covers the wax thread.
- Sew the leather trim closed at the end.
- Attach a loop of leather rope at the top of the tassel.
- Trim the tassel to desired length.
