A client approached me to design her a very low cost home, but one without compromise on comfort and energy efficiency. The resultant design for the flat building site in Atamai eco village also had to be completely off grid as no services were provided except a single water tank. All costs including fees and infrastructure had to fit within the budget, probably the most challenging project in my career; but with the help of an estimating service we achieved the goal. I adapted my Solabode modular 1200 grid plan system coupled with a very simple layout and with a 3 degree sloping ceiling in the main north facing living space. A Maxraft 100% insulated exposed concrete floor, full levels of Terralana wool insulation and an adobe feature wall all provide this modest 1 bedroom off grid home with all the comforts of home – for a very modest budget.
