A great example of how to have your cake and eat it. This home extension takes advantage of the high roof line in the main house and connects to it through a prefabricated link which we have designed. The total cost of this extension was about a 30% less than a conventions home extension. Using prefabricated wall panels with an R rating of 4, one can design a 7 to 8-star energy rated product. The use of Shoi Shugi Ban, charred timber wall panels and the rose gold sentry lights gives it that extra bit of pizazz. Shoi Shugi Ban is an ancient Japanese style of finishing off buildings using burnt using Cedar, Maple or old Oak. The process is quite difficult and time-consuming. However, in Oz we have spotted gum which once charred produces the same effect. The prefabricated link is a very simple structure to pre-fabricate and carried by crane onto the site. The purpose of this article is to convey or perhaps educate the benefits of preserving the existing roofline and cutting into the main house saves alot of money on an extension. In these times this sensible approach can also help with avoiding over capitalisation of rea- estate. Talk to us about our novel systems of construction.
