ZINCALUME steel from BlueScope Steel was used in the roof during the re-design of a rural farm house in South Gundurimba, New South Wales.
The 4-bedroom house was a working farm home that needed to be re-designed to provide a more spacious, practical space for permanent residency for the family.
The building designer was John Bath & Associates of Ballina NSW.
The two-level renovation project included the addition of verandas on three sides of the lower level.
ZINCALUME steel was used for the roofing. Durable and easy to maintain, ZINCALUME steel is suitable for the rural location.
ZINCALUME steel used for the roofing extension blends with the existing roof, also made from ZINCALUME steel.
Quad guttering made from COLORBOND steel in Surfmist colour aesthetically complements the grey tones of the roof.
The farm home received a commendation in the BDANSW 2010 State Design Awards in the category, Alterations and Additions over $200,000.
