A classic farmhouse with a modern twist

Renovating was considered by this couple but ultimately a new Landmark farmhouse with an industrial vibe provided the life-dream outcome 

Ryn and Jeff Going dreamt of building a classic Waikato farmhouse with an industrial vibe. 

Compared to the damp, dark home they started with, their new build is a dream come true!

In 2017, the Going family moved into their farmhouse near Gordonton with the intention of renovating the original property. 

However, after living in the old farmhouse for a few months, myriad problems became evident: It was cold, miserable, hard to heat, and the layout was sub-par.

The Goings soon realised that renovating it would be a big job and, even then, they would end up with something that wasn’t ideal. 

So, remove and rebuild it was.

Jeff Going: “Even though it was more money than renovating, it was worth it – and far easier than trying to make something out of nothing!”
