• 1987 Accent Homes extended the home to a plan drawn up by Halliday Hill and Associates. This extended the family room and constructed a new side entrance.
• 2003 the kitchen bathrooms and laundry were upgraded.
• 2009 Enviro Friendly installed a Sharp 3.15KW Grid Connect Solar power system (18 Panels). Surprisingly the system not only contributed significantly to the power bill but provided a noticeable difference to summer and winter temperatures in the sitting and dining rooms, where the solar panels cover the roof.
Solar system has a plan until 2029-30 at a 50 cent rebate.
• 2015 the gas hot water system was replaced with a Rheem solar system and the gas was turned off at the mains
• 2018 the roof was restored
• 2019 the ensuite bathroom was replaced by Re Seal Bathrooms
