The Deavoll Family Home is our expression of everything we love about building: Bespoke features, energy efficiency, practical spaces and sun & view maximisation.
The home is located in Shotover Country, on the edge of a terrace that looks out to the western mountains. We came up with the initial layout ourselves, then had Rob from The Draughting Company further refine our ideas into working drawings.
The cladding and roof is Alpine Tray in Bracken, with vertical cedar on the gable ends. The house was constructed from triboard prefabricated panels to make the building process quicker. This also gives us an airtight home with hardy walls. We have lined some of the interior walls with ply. This not only is a feature theme throughout the house, but also is hard wearing against 4 pairs of kiddies hands and feet.
