A cabin by the lake – inspiration bites!
Our couple owns a hidden sanctuary in the Southern Highlands of NSW. A peaceful retreat of rolling hills, lush countryside and Australian nature at its finest. A relaxing place away from it all.
The idea for their Melwood Porch project was sparked when Keith made an unexpected discovery in the lake. “Keith caught some fish, which was a surprise to us. We suddenly thought, wouldn’t it be nice to have something here projecting over the water,” Rowena shared. A vision for a relaxing retreat at the water’s edge, where you could cast a line straight off the deck, started to take shape.
Further inspiration came from their friends, Maren and David, who had previously installed a couple of Cedarspan Cabins. Rowena and Keith had long admired their build and so, jumping online to investigate their options, they went straight to Greenspan. “We went on your website, and it was inspiring,” they tell us.
As easy as shooting fish in a barrel
Sealing the deal was the ease with which their idea could be brought to life. The Greenspan Way ensures that the entire journey, from start to finish, is stress and doubt-free; just as our couple experienced. “Nothing was difficult. Everything was easy,” they recall.
Keith in particular appreciates this. He explains, “I start a lot of projects, and I don’t tend to finish a lot of projects. So, the best thing was we could go, ‘OK this is the design we want, and we’ll leave it up to you’”.
Hooked on a design
Confident that Greenspan was the perfect choice for their lakeside retreat, Rowena and Keith visited one of our Display Centres and sat down with a Design Solutioneer. “The guy there was just wonderful,” they recall. “It was very pain-free, and he was so pleasant and enthusiastic, which gave us a lot of heart.”
Together, they discussed the couple’s needs and vision, transforming them into a tangible design in 2D reality. “He would suggest things or try this and move that. He did it all on his computer screen,” Keith and Rowena recounted. This collaborative process with a design expert uncovered the ideal solution for their needs; a Melwood Porch 18. Furthermore, the flexibility to personalise the details of their chosen design allowed them to achieve the exact finish they had in mind.
And what was that vision?
