When Kat and Joel bought their home 14 years ago, it was a rustic old Edwardian shopfront with a train carriage in the backyard. Their shared passion for sustainable living saw them plan a complete revamp of the property, rebuilding a smarter, more efficient home in its place.

A recycled brick and radially sawn timber clad double storey extension to the single storey, the house includes sustainable design and building principals, particularly with the use of recycled materials, orientation and building practices.
