Could you tell us any interesting facts or remarkable features about your project?
Our intent was to build a low maintenance lifetime home of a contemporary nature. We are big fans of open plan living, something that is not generally offered by mass market builders/developers. We wanted something different to the typical traditional properties in our neighbourhood, hence the external brick/render/western red cedar finishes and vertical seamed metal roof.
