Home building has been made to look like a breeze for Justin Quaid owner of Specialised Structures in Ashburton.
Justin has undertaken a home building project in Mt Somers that takes into consideration the peaceful environment surrounding the home. Justin says: “The owners wanted a cottage look with a carport and storage room and the overall result is highly functionable.”
The home is is a mix of cold rolled steel and timber frame. The exterior of the home is clad in ebony corrugated iron with cedar on the front wall of the house. It has been further finished with plywood and gib to the soffits and internal ceilings.
The home is completely built to the sun and a good use of space has been created with an easy flow through the rooms of the house which boasts three bedrooms, two bathrooms (including an ensuite) and a store room.
There is a high raking ceiling in the lounge and lots of storage above the bedroom ceilings as the builders framed the ceilings down to 2.4m.
A covered in veranda at the front of the house allows for shelter and a good place to unwind on a summer’s night, and a large carport out the back takes care of the vehicles.
