Strawbridge House

This is a standard Solabode Mk2 - 2BR with a carport and garden shed for Tony and Leonie Strawbridge in central Levin. The 117m2 Solabode house sits nicely on slightly elevated site with excellent north aspect for solar gain in winter. It also provides eastern views to the Tararua's and several established native trees in the south quadrant provide for privacy and birdlife, providing this modest property with its own little environment.

Marsden House

Retired couple Ray and Daphne Marsden were moving from Invercargill to Motueka to share an established Biodynamic orchard with their son and daughter in-law who had recently bought the property in Brooklyn near the Motueka river. A resource consent was in place for a secondary minor dwelling to be built provided it was under 94.5m2.

Martin House

Gavin Martin approached me spring 2017 for a new home in Hanmer Springs, the large section was high above the town and bordered on the east side of Conical Hill reserve. With a limited budget we settled on a 2 bedroom house with single garage large enough for Gavin's Hilux truck. The site was moderately steep and with rocky ground and adjacent to an existing council access way.

Williams Coston House

A couple in New Plymouth asked me to design them a modest passive solar home at their bush clad lot at Pukeiti on the north slopes of Mt Taranaki; a nicely elevated site with great views of New Plymouth's Paritutu Rock and big chimney stack at Port Taranaki as well as the rugged Kaitake range and Tasman Sea beyond.

Blackman House

A young couple in Greymouth approached me for a house design on their rural / bush clad site on Welshmans Road , Rutherglen, just south of Greymouth. The site was restricted by covenants and easements which severely limited the scope for a house design, not to mention a passive solar home!
