Finishing the 23B interior took longer than expected in a challenging 2020, but it's finished. We've moved into our new home and are delighted to be here. The team certainly used everything they learned from building the others to make this a special home.
Cladding two curved wall sections completed the cladding on our third home. The high wall at the front entrance is now covered in Timbercrete bricks while the curved dining room window nestles into the embrace of reclaimed timber board and batten cladding.
Experience gained from building our first home helped to make some modifications to the cladding specifications for the second one. For example, we replaced Shadowclad with more Klip Lok steel cladding.
After the hot weather and other project priorities conspiring against us, it was a pleasure to finally start on landscaping the front garden of Unit 1. There are three main elements to the garden - crazy paving slate steps, a found object sculpture within a ring of railway sleepers and an indigenous bushland theme.
Building the deck for Unit 1 from sustainable decking materials was a requirement. Creating an artful privacy screen from reclaimed timber offcuts was the icing on the cake. The process highlighted what can be achieved with a commitment to sustainable building practices.
