Check out the September issue of House and Garden which kicks off with my story on Freya and Jelle Hilkemeijer's country barn conversion just outside Berry.
For those who have never been to the South Coast of New South Wales, their Berry Woodfired Sourdough Bakery is a local institution and a mecca for good food and coffee lovers.
This barn, at the foot of a rainforest-covered mountain, was originally full of farm machinery and junk when Freya and Jelle decided to turn it into their house. Freya's sister Natasha worked with them on the plans and builder Jamie Strong worked wonders, keeping to a tight budget and re-using things like the existing concrete slab and making screens out of old tomato stakes from Jelle's parents strawberry farm.
I have included some shots which the story couldn't fit in.
