Not much of noteworthy greenness has been happening on the build in the last few weeks but I’ve been getting lots of requests for a photo update so here it is. The final overall shape of the house is now really clear. I’m most excited to be feeling the space of the roof garden. It’s really easy to imagine it planted up and merging with the garden in the view beyond. The skylight will reduce the need for lighting in the lounge below (just visible behind the kids) and, looking up from the lounge, the plants that overhang will be lovely to look at.
There is another smaller roof garden around the outside shower off the master bathroom. The slab is also in place here so its been fun to stand ‘in’ the shower. Good thing the louvers are in the design or the neighbours RHS would be in for some interesting entertainment!
The old garage roof is off. The wall between it and the storeroom is down and the two are rapidly transforming into the granny flat. The wall in this view is to be the vertical garden. This is going to be quite extraordinarily beautiful. Watch this space as there are going to be lots of processes shared. I’m really excited about this element of the build as it is going to ‘disappear’ this whole building from this view of the property. It is also going to extend the wildlife habitat of my space as I will be using only indigenous plants (species list to be shared).
The Shuttering is off the veranda so we get a good feel for how cool and protected we will be here.
Looking forward to lots of long lazy lunches with family and friends.
