Stylish Manly home makes interior treasures from everyday trash

first_imgAvailable now.But until he retires the home is available for rent, furnished or unfurnished, for anyone looking for a place to live that is a bit different. It is available now through Sotheby’s International Realty for $1250 a week. New from old.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus20 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market20 hours ago”All the deckings are old floor joists from old Queenslanders,” he said. The entire construction of the home took about a year, and although he tried to source as much as he could second-hand, not all of it is.“For tin on top of the roof you have to do that new,” he said. The home is the polar opposite of the houses he usually works on as part of his day job, which he described as ultra-modern million dollar homes. A different type of style.“Every house I do is generic, it is what most people would like, this is something that I would like to live in,” he said.Because the property is not large enough to hold all the vehicles and tools he needs for work, he cannot live in it just yet. Modern furnishings straight from the scrap heap.Almost everything in the home has been repurposed from something that was thrown away, from the coffee table that is made from an old metal trunk, the bar stools from old tractor seats and the beds made from old railway sleepers. Rick Keel’s dream house is the opposite of the glitz of modern mansions. (AAP/Image Sarah Marshall)THIS eye-catching home overlooking the water at Manly might look like a million bucks, but most of it was built from everyday items that could have been found on the scrapheap.The two bedroom home at 563 Royal Esplanade was a passion project for tradie Rick Keel to showcase how a beautiful home can be made sustainably.“I grew up quite poor and we used to see a lot of waste from people that had a lot, and that stuck with me,” Mr Keel said.last_img read more

Carabao Cup semifinal: City thrash Man U

first_imgRelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says Man City top players test positive for coronavirus Manchester City took a huge step towards winning a third consecutive Carabao Cup with a 3-1 win over rivals Manchester United in the first leg of their semi-final meeting at Old Trafford. First-half goals from Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez, along with an Andreas Pereira own goal, set City on their way to gaining revenge for last month’s derby defeat in the League. Though Marcus Rashford’s late strike at least keeps the tie alive, it would be a huge surprise if Pep Guardiola’s men failed to reach their fourth final in five years from here. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was without the injured Harry Maguire, meaning a rare start for Phil Jones in defence, but the inclusion of David De Gea in a starting line-up in this competition for the first time since the 2017 final was evidence of the Norwegian sticking to his promise to field a strong side. Guardiola did likewise, making eight changes after rotating for the FA Cup win over Port Vale, though interestingly both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus were left on the bench as the visitors began without a recognised centre forward. That proved no issue, as Bernardo opened the scoring on 17 minutes with a rocket arrowed into the top corner from the edge of the box: there were question marks over United’s passive approach to letting him cut in onto his favoured left-foot, but none about the goalkeeper, who wouldn’t have got to it with a week’s warning. A shell-shocked United were soon two down as Bernardo turned provider, carving United apart with a wonderful pass that sent Mahrez clean through on goal and the Algerian made no mistake, rounding De Gea to score. Before the half was out, United were exposed again on the counter-attack as, despite the best efforts of the covering Brandon Williams, the ball found its way to Kevin De Bruyne, who sent Jones into next week before seeing his shot cannon back off De Gea and in off the unfortunate Pereira. City might have had more before the break had Raheem Sterling not seemed intent on keeping up his bizarre record of never having scored against United, first skewing wide at full stretch after one of those magical, low De Bruyne crosses, and then miskicking completely when presented with an easier chance by Mahrez. Solskjaer’s half-time response was to send on Nemanja Matic in place of the ineffective Jesse Lingard, and the Serbian’s presence added some much-needed solidity to the United midfield. The hosts improved without truly threatening Claudio Bravo’s goal, right up until the moment when Rashford struck on 70 minutes, slotting home from Mason Greenwood’s perfectly weighted pass to give the his side a lifeline to take to the Etihad.Tags: Bernado SilvaCarabao CupMarcus RashfordPep GuardiolaRiyad Mahrezlast_img read more

The decision was part the recommendations of FIFA-Confederations working group, after their meeting, which was organised via conference call on Friday. The FIFA-Confederations working group recommended that all international matches slated for June be postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced most football leagues and other sporting activities around the world to be suspended. “The Fifa-Confederations working group has unanimously approved a series of recommendations following its first meeting, which was organised via conference call today,” FIFA said in a statement on Friday. Following the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics by a year, the FIFA working group also proposed keeping the age eligibility rule of players born on or after January 1, 1997, and three additional players. It was also decided to hold discussions with confederations to draw up a revised schedule for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, which have been shelved. “The FIFA-Confederations working group will continue to hold discussions on a regular basis as the situation evolves,” added the statement. Last month, the Confederation of Africa Football postponed the AFCON qualifiers between Nigeria and Sierra Leone because of fears of the spread of the deadly crisis. After two games in AFCON qualifying series, the Super Eagles top Group L with six points following back-to-back victories over the Squirrels of Benin Republic and the Crocodiles of Lesotho.Tags: 2021 Africa CUp of NationsAFCONCoronavirusCOVID-19FIFAFOOTBALLNigeriaQualifierRepublic of Beninlast_img read more

Puncheon makes Palace loan move

first_img The 27-year-old winger played under Ian Holloway during a loan spell at Blackpool and has moved to Selhurst Park until the end of the current campaign. Holloway stressed last week that he was looking to add attacking flair and a further goalscoring threat to his squad having lost Wilfried Zaha to Manchester United and Puncheon appears to tick those boxes, having scored six times for Saints in the Premier League last season. During a nomadic career Puncheon has represented no less than 11 clubs, the majority of which were on loan deals similar to that which has now seen him become Palace’s 10th summer signing since winning the Championship play-off final in May. He joins Stephen Dobbie, Dwight Gayle, Jerome Thomas, Jose Campana, Kevin Phillips, Elliot Grandin, Marouane Chamakh, Neil Alexander and Florian Marange in joining the Eagles’ fight to avoid an immediate return to the second tier and admits he is looking forward to fulfilling a lifelong dream. “I actually played for Crystal Palace as a kid when I was eight,” he told Palace Player. “I left and there were a few times in my career that I was due to come back but didn’t. Now I’m here that’s the main thing. I’ve always as a young kid dreamed of playing at Selhurst Park, so it’s a young boy’s dream coming true. “I know Ollie [Holloway] really well. He was a massive factor in this move. He knows the league. He’s done it before and I think he will learn from his time at Blackpool and bring it into the team here.” Following a 1-0 home defeat to Tottenham on Sunday, Palace travel to face Stoke on Saturday looking to pick up their first points of the new campaign. Crystal Palace have confirmed the signing of Jason Puncheon on a season-long loan deal from Barclays Premier League rivals Southampton.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
