Timber Frame Construction and Solar Passive Design
Do you want to build your home in under 14 weeks?
This home in Craigie was a custom built, rear subdivided home built in 12 weeks!
The rear house was built using solar passive design principles and timber frame construction to ensure we respected the environment and enabled our clients to save costs both now and in to the future.
The cost savings came from the timing it took to build the home, materials and labour expense, and further more our clients will have long lasting savings due to the energy efficiency of the home, a timber frame home uses less energy to heat and cool when compared to standard double brick homes built here in Perth, Western Australia.
We were able to build this home in 12 weeks from slab down to practical completion. Distinct Renovations are able to keep build times to a minimum due to the work load we take on and further more timber framed homes can be built much quicker than standard double brick homes.
The home itself is a 3 bedroom and two bathroom home with a 2 car garage and is situated on a 308 m2 block to the rear of the original home.
The real highlight of this home is the open plan living space which includes a 4.2 meter high ceiling raking upward towards highlight windows.
Natural light is captured from all angles in this space which brightens up the room to make a some what small open plan living area into a welcoming place.
For such a small floor plan this home really does encompass a lot in terms of features.
The entry way is great for families with a custom built bench seat with underneath storage, a double car garage with laundry/kitchen access making bringing the shopping in a breeze.
The garage and entry are situated to one side of the house while the bedrooms and bathrooms off to the other, the open plan living space separates the two.
Leaving the kitchen, living space to the right you walk into a small hallway which leads to a comfortable sized linen press/study nook area on the right and a bathroom to the left. At the end of the hallway is an activity room or extra living space. Off each side of the activity room is a bed room. This area creates a great kids zone separated from the main living area.
The master bedroom has an entrance off the study nook with mirrored built in robes allowing for plenty of storage space and a great place to get ready. Off to the left of the master is an ensuite consisting of double vanities, toilet and shower.
The house was built with great functionality in mind but also budget which gives the home owners comfort, ease of living and affordable energy bills, for a lower cost than most builds of a similar look and feel.
