More than a lecture space
But aside from its initial purpose, Lisa’s new addition evolved into more than just a way of restoring peace in her home. It has become a haven set in its own leafy sanctuary that the whole family – even extended – now enjoys.
While peace reigns inside the home during the working day, with a household of boys, noise resumes after hours! Lisa’s Melwood has become a tranquil corner to enjoy peace once more. “I love it as my own chill-out zone, glass of wine and Netflix,” she tells us.
When the teenage boys need a quiet place to focus on their studies, they too have a peaceful retreat. “It will be very handy around HSC time,” Lisa notes.
Sometimes, the house gets too much even for Sparky, the family’s much-loved Labrador. He too enjoys this quiet space, while watching the wildlife bustling around the garden.
And if all this wasn’t enough use for one living space, it also serves as a welcoming guest room. Lisa’s parents love staying there when they come to visit. And it’s easy to see why – what an incredible setting to wake up in each morning!
More than a garden room
What began as a solution to bring peace back into the home has blossomed into a tranquil and multifunctional haven for the whole family.
So how does Lisa sum it all up?
“We absolutely love it; it is that extra space we needed. My husband lectures in the space, sometimes my son does his homework there, it’s a spare bed if needed. A getaway for me with a glass of wine and Netflix.”
Lisa’s story shows that a Melwood is not just a garden room. It’s a testament to how a well-designed space can transform a lifestyle and become an integral part of a family’s everyday happiness.
Because that’s what we’re all about — creating spaces that enhance lives.
