Some guff on the ‘big idea’

So yeah, this may give the reader a better idea of how the house is laid out. We have designed the home using the principles of ‘passive solar heating’ as a guide or rule and then filled out the aesthetics and practical function of the building around it.

Gilead is essentially a post and beam home with exposed trusses throughout.

It has been clad with a locally milled hardwood ship-lap giving the house a contemporary Australian feel.

It  has a central courtyard to allow the home a ‘second north’. We are hoping this space will also act as a lung for the house, keeping the ambient temperature modulated with a naturally controlled green space as well as providing a lush outside room to enjoy all year round.
