Jury explains that at 18 Robert Street, FPB went out and bought a typical early-1900’s kiwi weatherboard home. “With the expertise of Certified Renovations, the roof was lifted to add a second storey. The home was rewired throughout, insulation was added, rotting timber and old joinery replaced, and a re-design incorporated aesthetical features to meet the needs of kiwis’ lifestyles today and in the future. It was then finished in the latest colours, textures and furnishings.” The home is open Wednesday-Friday 11am-4pm and Saturday-Sunday 10am-4pm. To confirm your visit T: 09 846 6060 www.fpb.co.nz PN
