Fairytale vintage lodge in the woods, to modern container home high on a hilltop. Thanks, @HomestyleNZ Mag...

This beautiful home and event venue - Old Forest School - is in my neighbourhood here in the Bay of Plenty. Tucked away in a wooded valley, it's a fairytale vintage wedding venue with an historic 1930's schoolhouse and onsite accommodation (restored worker's cabins). There are L O A D S more images - thanks to photographer Heather Liddell - in the Homestyle issue, these are just a teeeeease. 

A.may.zing. Muriwai hilltop home, made from 6 shipping containers! (and P.S: it's currently for sale). This is the beautiful design and build project of a young NZ couple, Alex and Corban Walls.
