Our house started to take shape about 3 years ago, it is a work in progress.
Designed using passive solar principles to maximise thermal mass and cooling breezes. Constructed on a concrete slab with highly insulated timber framed corrugated iron clad walls and a corrugated iron roof. Particular attention has been paid to wall and ceiling insulation, double glazing, energy efficient lighting and sealing gaps/cracks.
All habitable rooms have a north aspect. Hot water is heated by a close coupled, roof mounted system and the house is heated by a radiant solid fuel heater in conjunction with ceiling fans. We are still in the process of organising a photovoltaic system.
