David and Bec sought to tell the story of the building’s historic past while creating a contemporary haven for a growing family The plan for this home was simple. Owners David and Bec Smith were to add an architectural rear extension overlooking a new pool and give the facade a face-lift. But when a note fell out from behind an architrave during the initial stages of the renovation, works came to a halt. THESE WALLS COULD TALK The note read: “This building was erected by M. M. Haiges.
