A new build for a customer who wanted a house that wouldn’t crack this time! A tricky site involving driven piles and a slope, but the use of ready-clad panels helped get materials onto site quickly where access was limited.
Based on one of the standard plans this was tailored to suit by the customers, giving them the sun and views towards the hills, but also shelter at the back door should a cold Southerly blow through. As a Rotherham build it is very close to Waiau, but sustained no damage whatsoever in the Kaikoura earthquakes; the owners are delighted.
This is a variation on the ‘Concept 6’ plan with a bedroom pushed out to form an ‘L’ shape, and has a larger veranda with the hardwood decking. It is currently used as the show home, so it is available for viewing by appointment.
This is a very popular size for a two bedroom home, having a large main bedroom and lounge that is bigger than the 3 bedroom Concept 6. We have built these for retirement batches and holiday homes on the West Coast to small starter homes for young families. This example was clad in cedar using the older style panels.
This is stage one of a larger project. The customers have had this for a few years, but have tripled its size so more family can come to stay and enjoy the stunning views. (See construction page for more on the updated version)
