Life is really simple but we insist on making it complicated
I have created the concept of small DIY eco house when investigated an alternative solution to creating small dwellings that could be easily build by an inexperienced owner builder and on much lower budget that the standard australian home. This was partly due to the high costs and limited options australian housing has currently to offer.
A few criteria were paramount during the planning & design phase: The simplicity of the build, the materials and the affordability. Another focus was on the functionality and how the house was to adapt different stages of the occupant’s life. The key difference between the one-off bespoke projects and the ecokit home is the continual development and improvements made to the design. It’s a house that can be produced on a large scale and will be continually refined with every single one.
Currently organizing building of the first prototype, to be open as a show home in the near future. This home will feature many additional features and new technologies to showcase that eco-friendly living and modern technology can coexist and our lives can benefit from both.
