This is an amazingly warm home, the home owners don't even need a duvet for their bed.

The interior walls are built with rammed earth wall and lime plastered. Exterior walls are super insulated timber frame.

The house also features a spiral staircase, in its own tower.

Underflooring heating pipes were installed just in case, but so far they have not needed to connect them.

Other eco features include: super insulation, thermally broken slab, airtight construction (in 2009 it was the most airtight house tested in NZ at that time), thermally broken joinery, double glazed low E argon filled glazing, oiled native timbers internally, low allergen finishes, solar water heating, very efficient Ethos woodburner, permeable paving on driveway, and native planting.
