Homeowners 'Performance Update'!!
If you want to hear how our high performance homes are performing then there is nothing better than hearing it from the homeowners themselves! These guys built a home 35% bigger than their old home but have reduced their energy spend by 64%!!.......and this is without solar PV panels (although the house has been pre-wired for them).

This is what they had to say....'an update on the house and energy performance for 2021 through to the end of August; on electricity alone we have used 25% less power than the same period last year in the old house - 3,128kWh vs 4,159, or $863 so far vs $1,182. We were always low users but that's a big improvement, especially as this house is about 35% bigger (but a lot less leaky). But we ALSO had gas central heating and a pellet fire to feed, which added another $1,245 in bills. So basically for 8 months so far this year we have reduced our energy spending by 64%! Seems like it's working'.

3/3 - Bowenvale Ave - SIPS Passive House 🏡

Working closely with the architect and owners during the design stage we together achieved a bright, sunny home that met all the requirements of a passive house. The windows and doors were designed to prevent overheating and the SIPS and uPVC windows provided high levels of insulation and air tightness.
The owners were retiring and looking towards a warm healthy home with minimal running costs, but also a place they could entertain their children and grandchildren. The large open plan living area with timber floor and floating stairwell are two of the many interior features. Outside, window and door louvres break up the light exterior plaster finish.
