Jessie's House

On a wonderful inner city cul de sac, a corner block is now presented with a friendly sustainable new member that informs how higher density living doesn't always require a two storey offering.  On 300m2 block, 3 bedroom, 3 bathrooms (including one that is wheelchair friendly), and 2 living spaces provide flexible living arrangement for the owners. 

The most rewarding outcome is natural light floods into each and every room of this compact dwelling.   Picture windows frame neighbourhood trees and birds, double-glazing provide calm and quiet, cutting out the traffic noise. 

Even on small block, we have not skimped on environmentally low-impact material selection such as ecoblend polished concrete, recycled bricks on the inside and out, recycled door, easy to maintain, smartly cladded colourbond walls and roof sheets.  High efficiency Daikin recycle unit and Sanden heat pump for hot water,  6k litre rainwater collection are the icing on the cake for this compact, functional and wonderfully bright house, which achieved 8.1 stars in house energy rating.  All 6.6kwH of photovoltaic panels are there, intentionally hidden.  Can you see them?    This house will be self sufficient for many years to come.
