The Rosedale Home

The Rosedale Lodge is a dream shed home turned reality for a retiree couple from South Canterbury. Located in a quiet rural spot, this 336m2 home allowed the couple to have an extra bedroom and ensuite for their elderly mother, storage for all the toys, and a modern and open-plan living area. The couple came to us with a clear brief as to what they had in mind. With the kids having long flown the coop and at a stage where retirement age was on the horizon, there was a need for easy, efficient living spaces and room for all the toys. Split more or less in half over the 27.5m x 12m footprint, the couple's collection of classic vehicles occupies a three-bay 14 x 12 area, whilst the living sits on a foam-insulated slab with generous windows capturing any available sun. With future-proofing in mind, the couple chose to add a pre-engineered mezzanine floor. This space allows for a further 108m2 habitable space to be constructed that could convert to an additional 4 bedrooms. Having now been in the home for over 6 months our clients report there is nothing at all they would change and they would recommend this solution to anyone wanting to combine storage and living.
