Hot water is solar thermal, space heating and cooling is addressed via passive methods; orientation, strategic shading and ventilation and the open volume is warmed by a high efficiency wood stove.
Rainwater is harvested during the cape winter and a registered borehole supply takes over during summer to keep the tanks full for garden irrigation and topping up the pool. The house runs on mains.
The client was fabulous to work with and very trusting of our process but drive a tight budget. Great contractor, PPM was flexible, delivered a good finish and went the extra mile on budget and program.
