Hop Kiln Conversion

Completed 2002

The owners of this old hop kiln wished to convert it into holiday accommodation for their family. Keeping true to the rural industrial ethic the conversion uses readily available materials - plywood, gangnail trusses, aluminium joinery, steel section, radiata posts and rough sawn weatherboards to create a new life for a piece of rural history.
