“We visited Ōamaru the year before we decided to build our home. We enjoyed a thoroughly wonderful time there and fell in love with all the solid Ōamaru stone buildings in the historic precinct. When we found our section, we spent days just admiring the wonderful view of Lake Wakatipu, before we decided what kind of home we were going to build. Each day we were on our section, we looked across the lake, we could see this magnificent home, warmly glowing in the sunlight. Every day during that time, we looked over the lake, at the house, eventually taking a drive to get a closer view. When we found out it was built using natural Ōamaru stone and we thought about our visit to Ōamaru, we knew we had to use Ōamaru stone ourselves. We love the stone so much, we built a feature wall so that when we get sick of watching the TV, we can look at the stone!”
