Good design needs to suit the whole family, but that can be a challenge when you're catering for 2 adults, 3 kids, 2 cats, 2 guinea pigs, a gold fish and a great dane the size of a pony. Hamish the dog likes nothing better than sleeping on the bed with Mum and Dad and hogging the sofa. Each Sunday the whole family love to spend time together in their tiny lounge room. But with space at a premium, can Shaynna come up with a pet friendly renovation before they all get busy with their other love: theatrical production. Their latest play is looming and they need the house sorted before production starts. The budget is a tight $70,000 but the works are more about clever design and decoration than full scale renovation focusing on the lounge room and study, 2 bedrooms and an ensuite.
