This was a joint venture project with Insulation Systems PTY LTD. The project is a single storey, 3 bedrooms 2-bathroom open plan living area Queenslander style residential home. The clients, Mr Robert and Peta Charlebois are both in retirement and were very educated on the current building practices available in Perth. It was Refreshing to deal with a client that understands the principles and availability of comfortable living through sustainable construction.
The project is designed and constructed using a newly designed composite timber and steel framed external structure based on Passive Haus principles. This house was challenging to work on but fulfilling once completed. Our primary challenge was simply location. After a little research and some meetings, we enlisted the help of Denmark Building Company, Colin Ross who assisted us with local labour, suppliers and trades. Colin provided invaluable assistance integrating the local community into the build and ensuring as much possible capital from the build went back to the local community. Build time was just under 5 months and The clients and now living in their new home and extremely satisfied with the end product.
