We believe strongly in the principles of sustainability and liked the idea of having underground water storage as well as hydronic underfloor heating.
Other principles that were attractive included reverse brick veneer construction, solar passive design in general. Gardening is a passion and to compliment the sustainable house we wanted to create a low maintenance and low water use garden.
