In early 2016 we moved into our first home, a historic hall in Auckland, New Zealand. Even though it was about as far form a conventional home as possible, we were ecstatic. Still standing but very rough around the edges, the 115 year old beauty was in dire need of restoration.


Our vision is to preserve the incredible heritage while we convert it into a home where we can one day raise a family. It is an ambitious project for two DIY novices but we're armed with enthusiasm, keen to learn and ready to take on the challenge. Our budget is limited and skills even more so (for now), we believe we can make up for it with hard work, resourcefulness and a bit of old kiwi ingenuity.


Hall We Need is a place to document our journey. Thanks for joining us...we're grateful you're here.
