Peter Sutton (Echuca-based builder) has built a house in Torrumbarry, which looks like a shearing shed, and will be featured on a TV show called Australia's Best Homes on Foxtel. Architectural critic and commentator Gary Takle was impressed by the design and family-friendly warmth of Torrumbarry house a€?Trishlida on Dhungalaa€™.
Given the inspiration for this unconventional house is a shearing shed, it is no wonder producers were so keen to feature the home on the first episode of the first season of the new Foxtel TV show Australiaa€™s Best Homes in March. Mr Takle, who hosts the show, said Trishlida on Dhungala was one of the many fascinating properties Australia-wide to be featured. The house stands out because of its unique features, which include a lantern roof, a large sliding timber door and quirky interior design. The home, which took four years to complete from inception, is the brainchild of Melbourne couple Lynn and Rowan Mason. The four-bedroom house is the full-time home to the couplea€™s daughter, holiday house to the couplea€™s other three children and their partners and a retirement nest egg for the couple, who visit almost every weekend. The house was built by Echuca builder Peter Sutton, who had some input into Lynna€™s distinct vision for the home.
Lynn and Rowan bought the three-acre block three years ago and began building the home two years ago. Mrs Mason said she did a lot of research before building and decorating the house and sourced much of the internal features of the house herself.
She hand-made the kitchen splashback by stencilling hessian bags to look antique, as well as the light in the central living area, which is a spherical barbed-wire design. Kitchen lights were sourced from a tip in Hobart and a real shearing overhead hangs over the doorframe into an undercover outdoor entertainment area.
The kitchen bench is a replica of a wool-sorting table and shearing paraphernalia is scattered around the house. Perhaps the best and most unexpected feature of the house is an outdoor bath retreat, set inside what looks like an empty corrugated iron water tank. The Australiaa€™s Best Homes episode featuring the house will be aired on Foxtela€™s Aurora channel on Monday, March 4 at 8.30pm. Shepparton teenager Billy Jones will step onto the national television stage in Melbourne tomorrow.

Olympic swimmers Melanie and Chris Wright kick off their retirement in their 'second home'. Beautiful bushland becomes the perfect setting to build a modern house that honours the region's wool industry.
The Shearer’s Quarters, as it is called because it serves as a shearer’s shed and retreat for sheep farmers, was designed and is owned by architect John Wardle.
It took home multiple awards from this year’s Houses Awards, which celebrates Australia’s best residential projects.
The exterior, wrapped in industrial corrugated sheet metal, might look unalluring, but the luxurious and crisp interior, lined with recycled wood and timber from apple box crates, is a thing of beauty.
As the Jurors of the Houses Awards put it, “this is a finely tuned and beautifully synthesized building that is a reminder of the essential systems and patterns of domestic life”. The attention to detail and desire to ensure the design was practical but interesting was evident from day 1. Decor adorning the walls and floors pays homage to the landscape and rural traditions, with recycled and preloved materials used as much as possible. But, thankfully, some work had already been done, as the land was purchased fully fenced, with all connections and came with a 12-square shed, “half of which provided a base,” Lynn says.Construction on ‘the shed’, as it is affectionately called, began in March 2011, and the family moved in just days before Christmas that year.
But it was building designer Peter Sutton from Echuca's Sutton Constructions whose inspiring lantern roof that capped off the perfect design, she says. In planning the build we were constantly mindful of the traditional Aboriginal way of touching the earth gently.
We were also thrilled when Yorta Yorta Elder, Rick Ronan, accepted our invitation to welcome us to the country and our family had a wonderful afternoon listening to stories of the country and culture before the building commenced.”In planning the build we were constantly mindful of the traditional Aboriginal way of touching the earth gently.
Trishlida is a combination of the Masons' four children’s names and Dhungala is Yorta Yorta for Murray River.“It translates to Our Family gathered at the Murray River,” she says.
Our son Dane (Mason Balustrade and Fencing) designed and built the large sliding-timber and steel barn door that features in the front entrance.”The house has a five-star energy rating and is north facing. Opening the front barn door and rear doors creates a cool breezeway, eliminating the everyday use of evaporative cooling. The heavy-duty screen doors enclosing the rear verandah create an open-plan year-round living and entertaining area as the screens keep insects at bay during summer months and are easily removed in winter to allow the low sun to filter into the living room. We also installed an energy- efficient, cast-iron wood-fire heater.”Materials selected further add to the illusion that the structure has existed for many years, appearing effortless in its natural environs.
We used old wool bale stencils from a local property to create the jute bags behind the splashback to give the appearance of the kitchen having been installed over some old wool bales. An indoor-outdoor bathroom also clad in corrugated iron and a walk- through robe are stunning features in the main bedroom.“We have a corrugated iron, outdoor shower in the Pitjantjatjara Lands and love showering under the brilliant star-filled skies,” Lynn says. Our daughter-in-law’s family had a 1912 claw foot bath removed from their home that had rusted nicely on the outside, leaving us with the task of re-sealing the inside and making it just the thing to sit in the water tank attached to the ensuite.”We are very keen to have a sustainable vegie garden, fruit trees and already have some chooks, a goat and a sheep.
Local landscape designer Sue Beveridge was commissioned to create the plans that allow us to work at our own pace with excellent direction. We view this project as a living breathing work of art in progress, constantly growing and changing, there will always be a new idea to love!”Lynn says the family relishes spending any moment they can at the property, including the landscaping, and as she and Rowan prepare for retirement “down the track” this includes exploring ways to generate an income by sharing the uniqueness of the property.“It’s not everybody’s cup of tea, but we love it,” she enthuses.Want to get free, daily news updates?
