Coryong Restored


Against the Grain was engaged to restore and extend this original 1917 weatherboard cottage, located in a heritage conservation area.


Original features including plaster ceilings, pressed metal wall cladding, and brick fireplace were meticulously maintained. Upgrades such as underfloor heating in bathrooms and double glazing on all windows and doors improve comfort and energy efficiency.


Work to the heritage exterior include window awnings, timber lining boards, balustrade and Pacific teak (Vitex) decking boards custom milled to match original.


The addition comprises a light-filled dining space and generous master with ensuite and walk-in-robe. New internal stairs provide access to second lounge area in the converted attic space. Ample storage was created inside and under the home.


Against the Grain’s Windows & Doors team manufactured high-performance timber windows and doors, exactly matching existing heritage styles, profiles and mouldings. New windows and entry doors across the rear of the extension open to a tiled courtyard, improving connection to the established cool climate garden.
