DO UP: The House of Dreams in Beach Haven after renovation work started.

The House of Dreams team took a break from renovations over the festive season but is back with plans to auction the 1940s-era house in late March.

An auction for the house was planned for early December but there are still tasks to complete before it is ready for sale, Ray White Beach Haven's Glenn Carpenter says.

The house at 43 Rangatira Rd has been under renovation since last October and will be auctioned to raise money for Beach Haven Plunket.

It is hoped $50,000 will be raised from the sale to do up Plunket's Beach Haven clinic, including soundproofing and adding pram parks.

The House of Dreams is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom property with businesses and members of the community all pitching in to strip it down and completely refurbish it.

Open homes are held each weekend so people can view the progress.

Another community garage sale is planned for tomorrow with donated goods going on sale.

A total of $1046 was raised in the first community garage sale.

This week P S Electrical finished off the pre-wire, McDermond Plumbing popped in on Wednesday, Mammoth insulation was installed on Thursday and an Auckland Council inspector is expected today for a pre-lining inspection, Mr Carpenter says.

"Contract Landscapes has built us a beautiful new retaining wall which has levelled the back lawn for that all-important entertaining area."

Tomorrow's community garage sale starts at 8.30am at 43 Rangatira Rd, Beach Haven.
