As I’m sure you’re aware we’ve been very busy making a heap of great changes here at Nullarbor Roadhouse.
The “Improvements Team”, lead by Marty Powell, have been hard at work and they’ve already accomplished quite a lot only 3 weeks into this huge Roadhouse Revamp!
Marty is a seasoned carpenter and project manager who’s worked on more than his share of tough rural projects but the Nullarbor seems to be presenting some unique challenges.
“Every job is different that’s for sure. The wind can be frustrating out here at times but I guess it makes it that much more rewarding”.
The Roadhouse scrap yard has also added an interesting dynamic to the project, proving quite the “gold mine” for Marty and his team.
“It pretty amazing what we’ve been able to find in there. Old cars, license plates and the old Roadhouse signage too”.
“It’s been a lot of fun to add these to the work as we go. [You] can really feel the history of the place”.
To compliment Marty’s stellar work, painter Pam Armstrong has been adding an Aussie artistic touch with her amazing murals. Below is some of the work she’s completed over the past few weeks. The the “Celebrity Sheep Shed” is proving a real standout.
