Firstly, thank you to everyone who entered our Christmas giveaway. Unfortunately, there can only be one winner and Alma Hume is the lucky recipient this time. Congratulations Alma!!
Even if you missed out this time around, we would highly recommend this book as a great overview of sustainable building and living in New Zealand with lots of practical tips and tricks.
We are at the end of a very exciting year for Craft Homes. We started the year with an environmental passive solar home in beautiful Ruakaka designed by Duncan Firth from Solarei (check out this project in the video above).
We are currently nearing the end of another passive solar home in Huia, West Auckland (more great views!) for the same designer. We post regular updates about this project on our Facebook page.
We have also just completed an extensive Remuera renovation, complete with high performance insulation and a specialised ventilation system throughout to turn a cold, damp villa in to a healthy, and more energy efficient family home (it can be done!).
We look forward to sending you more updates in the new year of the exciting projects, and new and innovative products we are using. This includes a SIPS panel home and construction of a home using Izodom, which is steel reinforced, concrete filled formwork for walls and midfloors.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic start to 2019!! Please get in touch if you want to chat about a new project you have coming up.
