The Whale House

Dec 27, 2015

Just completed, The Whale House in the popular Great Ocean Road enclave of Fairhaven was the first house built in ‘Timbara Cluster’, a private allotment of land high above the Fairhaven SLSC after the Ash Wednesday fires of 1983.

The house, with spectacular views had not been painted in over 19 years.

The clients, fully aware that the house needed a freshen up, were more than confident with the colours chosen and the results greatly improve the existing beige colours of the 1990’s. The colours are:

Gutters/Facia Boards – Dulux Black Ace

Weatherboards – Dulux Ace of Spades

Windows/Doors – Dulux Lexicon Half

The following photos show the completed work with some additional ‘work in progress’ shots further below:

Scaffolding and a knuckle boom were required to access many areas of the home.
