little bit info about the plans.
first of it all this home plane is all abut energy afferent .eco friendly .open plane. and low cost of maintain.it is north facing home witch mean it will have low winter sun and worm house neutral way. idea of those large windows at the front to let neutral light and sun and we have the views of Walyunga national park .and eves to protect the summer high sun .very less window at west as i don't want get fried by summer sun lol .same at east as well to prevent the morning sun coming in .south with few windows to let the views in for garden.only windows i have at west wall is see-through splash back witch i love .bed rooms are south witch mean it will be stay cooler in summer.
we try to keep house open plane as i like the luxury of building fake wall when and were i want .and we hate dead walkways to very minimal as they are dead space of the house another words (useless).we currently living in open plane home every one come in they love it feel of open space is awesome. .
i am planning to put split system in the house.as that are the best way to cool or heat the house and and best climate control option cept the home simple so it is easy and cheep way to install those air cone over the time and standard installation . another advantage is low running cost and easy to replace little unit the one big one.and perfect climate control for each room .and only use air cone the room you in
we r going to put solar panels and solar hot water system.as our current home have both and bills r minimum even with peek summer electricity bill never exceed 150 $ it will have r4.1 insulation in roof.the house will have new led light.and smart wires every ware.will think about the bore latter on for the garden.at the moment i am thinking about the rain water tank for garden.

Hi mr singh! Great front elevation, it's going to look fantastic from the street, very impressive.
We were originally going to build the Blanchett with Celebration Homes on the land you are on now, did you have to put stone cladding on your front elevation anywhere? They were making us add it as a feature as the land is on a "dress circle" so required more fancy finishes.
Are you doing your solar hot water with Celebrations or doing it after? We thought the price with Celebrations was a bit high so upgraded to the instantaneous gas hot water instead.
Not long now till you'll be getting a roof on, I think it took ours less than 4 weeks from when the bricks arrived on site till the last brick had been laid.

Thanks .Yes, it is marion front porch .we like the look of it .Good way to have an outdoor coffee and newspaper wile enjoy those views couldn't go pass it.
Originally ch has design a Blanchett for the land. We thought about it for wile.The way i think the whole idea about buying that land to sweep those views of those hills in the house and for the North facing living rooms .So we don't thrive for winter warm son as the South facing living room will don't have no sun and looking at the retaining wall witch is nearly 2 meters high.
so we decide to bring the house far forward so we have large living space as well the nice drive through garage to put boat or caravan at the side of the house and have provision for pool and outdoor entertaining aria Blanchett was nice home as well.i might be wrong on this one but having a miner bed room at the front of that house on that lend would not do any justice for the beautiful primeum real-estate block.
so how long to go for your lockup now you must be very keen by now. i think your house going to look fantastic by the time you finish with it

Brick work is coming along nicely. Plus it looks like we have a few more dry days coming up. So that is also good news!
