Solar Passive Family Home

After purchasing a property in Chewton, Shayne and Mai were ready to build their first family home. They wanted their new energy efficient home to be connected to its surrounds, filled with natural light to bring the outside in.

Shayne has been our photographer for over five years and as such, has seen many of our homes. So, when it came time to build his own, we were very pleased he and Mai chose to build with us.

Family Home

Being a family home, it was very important to Shayne and Mai that the design was open plan and that the kitchen be central. They also wanted to ensure there were spaces for outside entertaining as well as usable garden space to develop through permaculture principles and for their son to play in.

They were drawn to the Rammed Earth for its natural colour and energy efficient properties, as they wanted a home that was sustainable and cost-effective to live in.
