This slim three bedroom home is designed considering the narrow sections currently available in some of our most populated cities. The home embraces key district plan rules of front entrance, interaction with the street and carpark location on site. Built with environmentally conscious and locally sourced materials, this home is designed to suit kiwi families. 

With natural timber and brick this home will also be low on maintenance. Interest along the facade has been created using traditional brick in a fishtail pattern. For those living down south, the brick can easily be replaced with locally sourced stone. 

The home has 3 bedrooms, separate toilet and ensuite, ample storage space and also hosts a built-in laundry cupboard. The third bedroom positioned at the front of the house can also be duplicated as a study or an office, for those working from home.

The living /dining areas are visually connected to the street and also extends itself onto a rear courtyard, shaded with timber pergolas. Higher volumes in the living and dining bring a sense of spaciousness to this compact 3 bedroom home.

How does this plan perform?

This plan operates using 88%* less heating energy than if this same plan was built to the NZ Building Code, and here's why. The People's House Collection has been designed and modelled to meet our eHaus Pacific performance standard. Creating a thermal envelope by ensuring there's a continuous layer of insulation that wraps around the building and using high performance joinery, this home is designed to maintain a constant minimum temperature of 20°C all year round. Some active heating or cooling will be required at certain times of the year.

Sustainability approach

Sustainability is woven into the very fabric of every People's House Plan that we build. By utilising clever building science and sustainable construction materials, our homes are making a positive impact on the planet-and it doesn’t stop there. We have partnered with other forward thinking, like-minded suppliers. We have plastic free carpets, water saving taps, low VOC paint and LED lighting, just to name a few. This home is packed with so much goodness for you and the planet, without compromising on good looks and style.

Living lighter on the planet

Because of the way this plan is designed and constructed, we know and can measure the amount of carbon through energy efficiency that this home can be expected to save each year, and we think that’s pretty cool.
