A wood shed that was once the envy of thousands has been transformed into a Christmas tree.
It was a simple task for homeowner Kevin Fauci, who had just bought the shed to replace a broken one.
“It was very simple,” Mr Fauctis said.
“I just picked up the shed and I just put the tree down on top and it was just fantastic.”
Mr Faucci said the shed had already been in the family for almost 30 years.
“We have had it for almost 20 years now,” he said.
Mr Faucis said the tree, which is still in its shed form, was about four metres tall.
“There’s no tree in the world that looks as good as that,” he joked.
“The kids, I mean they love it,” he added.
“They’re all going crazy over it.”
Mr Dutton said the community welcomed the project and was happy to have something like this to give back to the community.
“This is a very big thing for us,” he explained.
“Because we are really blessed with these beautiful trees, we want to see it become a bit more permanent.”
He said it was a win-win situation.
“To get this project done, it gives us an opportunity to give the community something a little special,” he told ABC Local Radio.
“And it gives them a chance to be part of the community as well.”
The wooden tree was one of about 40 wooden sheds that had been converted into tree houses, and Mr Faucises family were excited to see that it was now ready for Christmas.
“When I saw it I was very excited to give it a go,” he admitted.
“My family is really excited to have it,” Mr Dutton added.
