South Coast

The brief to renowned architect Virginia Kerridge was to graft a striking contemporary addition onto an original 1930’s  weatherboard cottage. The off-grid property in the middle of the bush, features 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a separate library and a home office on the ground floor. Upstairs in the galvanised roof tower is a living room accessed via a floating feature steel staircase. Sitting high above the open plan spaces, it was designed to make the most of the escarpment and rainforest views and feature recycled timbers throughout.

"As clients, our two most important measures of success were budget and quality of finish. In both measures J2 has produced an outstanding outcome. They are skilled and professional builders. Apart from their proficiency in all aspects of the construction it has been a pleasure to work with and interact with Jacques and in particular his team. Our relationship throughout the 12+ month build has been characterised by courtesy, friendliness, fun and professionalism and I have no hesitation in highly recommending the J2 team to others."


"I had the pleasure of working with Jacques Dezarnaulds from J2 Build on a substantial addition to an historic house on the South Coast. I was delighted with the end result and the amount of thought and care that went into the construction of the building. Jacques and his team are good communicators and very easy to work with."
