A large living space and kitchen provides plenty of room for two families, and is heated largely by passive solar.  In cold weather a woodburner heats the house and concrete floor, and the well insulated MagRoc© walls keep the heat inside.

Two large decks offer outstanding views of the Craigieburn and Torlesse mountain range, and the sculptural limestone rocks of Kura Tawhiti, Castle Hill.  The passive solar design keeps the house from overheating in the summer and the decks become an extension of the living space.

A spa pool on the western side of the house is the perfect end to an active day.
