Awesome site donor
The build quality last season was so poor haha. Well finished but if you paused and looked at things like joints it was an absolute disaster!The bare minimum I imagine. When you actually look at the house design last series the walls themselves were kept fairly neutral and bland which in theory means by concentrating on changing the furniture and accessories they can give it a fresher feel without doing too much. I doubt they'll be anything like the change we are used too.
Judging by the different floor levels etc, the entire set was essentially slotted into place without damaging the existing buildings at all.By the way, since they are leasing that bunker/warehouse (I'm assuming), how much of the original structure do you reckon is being compromised with the renovations inside? It's a historical site?
I mean, sort of? But to daledeloy's credit for the 2005-2008 seasons they moved the pool to the corner of the yard and covered over (?) the old pool.The pool had been in the same location at the Dreamworld house since 2003.
2003 & 2004 had the same pool. 2005-2007 had the same pool, 2008 had no pool, minus the little one next to the spa and 2012-2014 has the same pool, so it changed location within the backyard.The pool had been in the same location at the Dreamworld house since 2003.
The buildings they're using are zoned for adaptive re-use and there hasn't been any clear strategic purpose for them for a while (although that's been under review). They're relatively new buildings and aren't protected like much of their surroundings. North Head is government managed so while Seven/Endemol circumvent the need for council approval, they do have to submit to the Harbour Trust. You could potentially do a FOI request for house plans/production info under public interest, but they're likely to charge you admin fees.By the way, since they are leasing that bunker/warehouse (I'm assuming), how much of the original structure do you reckon is being compromised with the renovations inside?
