NSW & ACT Entries 2010

This fully sustainable family home set on 55 acres is self-sufficient in power, water and effuluent. The exterior of the home consists of blackbutt shiplap timber cladding that was specially profiled and milled and cut to 2.7m lengths to avoid any wastage. The timber was pre-oiled/stained before application. The timber provides an amazing warmth to the home and a feeling that in 100 years the house would still be in context without "going out of fashion" so to speak. You will note the way the timber cladding sits just shy of the top band of cladding which serves as a protection from wet weather. All downpipes and gutters have been concealed for a beatufiul clean line finish which required a great attention to detail. The use of timber also extended to the shower recess floor, the bathroom basins and decking areas.
Blackwood plywood veneer panels were used on the ceilings internally (decorative) in the main bedroom and lounge/dining as a feature to hide fluroescent lighting and provide aucoustic benefits. These panels were routed and hand sanded then stained and installed perfectly in line.
