    Judge's Comments:

    This house is known as The Abbey.  The stable, as part of the restoration, was challenging as it had seen many different uses in the past 100+ years.  Now the stable features garages and store areas and an upper loft one bedroom apartment.  Some of the ornate steel trusses in the stable were remade to match existing. A new external timber and steel staircase with wrought iron handrails and a curved corrugated iron roof was installed to give access from the stable walkway to the house. In the walkway and over the staircase to support the roof, turned timber posts were specially made to match the existing. Arches along the wall of the walkway as well as new timber windows in the stable were also made to match existing.  The outside restorations excellently blend old with new.  Terrific attention to detail.
