This bespoke two story house, having stared life as an empty plot of land, is being built from the ground up and encompasses 800 SQM. This house will incorporate a VRF AC system, extra thick walls, double glazed windows and doors, extra thick roof insulation, and heat reflective roof tiles along side numerous other innovations that will make this house highly efficient and economical.
Work started with 80 foundation piles that were pushed down to an average of 22 meters placed to support the house and all surrounding structures such as the lake side sala and both 3 port driveways. From there the ring beam and footings were constructed with a complicated inner steel structure guaranteeing that this house will stand firm. This ensures that complications common to many houses built without proper piles such as sinking and cracking are avoided.
The floors and columns are made of a steel structure and poured concrete, tested each time with a slump test to confirm the consistency of each truck load thus ensuring the strength of both the floors and columns. Block work soon followed with special ordered extra thick Q-con bricks.
The roof is made of a light weight steel truss structure that was assembled and lifted onsite into place, followed then by concrete composite roof tile that is designed to reflect heat.
All builtin furniture is designed to fit the exact specifications of the clients from media centers that are made so that line of site is at its optimal level, to the extra large kitchen island kitchen work tops, and the environmentally controlled walking closet.
This house will incorporate mass amount of natural stone cladding both on the exterior and interior giving a very unique feel to the house. Natural slate, stone jigsaw, and travertine stone are but a few examples.
