Just thought you might be interested to hear that we are building a custom design home with Ventura homes in Perth. Site works should start in about 3-4 weeks!

I am putting in retro-spective blog posts to keep track of what has been going on. It's been a long process so far.
We are planning to build a Solar-Passive design house that uses the Winter Sun to warm the house and stays relatively cool in summer. We initially looked at the Rural Building Co as we liked the skillion roof designed RiverGum skillion, but at an extra around $30K this wasn't feasible so we decided to go for a standard roof.
Enjoy the blog...If you've got any question go ahead and ask!
