We co-designed this home with a local architect/builder in 2018-19. The aim was to be as sustainable as we could, by thoughtful use of materials and passive design, while also drawing on traditional French provincial styles.
Building in a bushfire prone region also meant factoring in BAL requirements upfront and along the way. Features include water tanks, on-site sewer management, heat pump for hot water and rooftop solar. We love living in our new home and are proud of what we achieved – we hope to share a few tips with you!
