Full set of plans for $1,650 (incl. GST).

The “Treetops” is a funky loft style cabin design, 2 storey box with an expressive design thanks to the materials, proportions and light filled interior thanks to the north facing glazing and double height space.

Lightweight materials and detailing give it a causal beach shack appeal.  The design would be ideal as a holiday home, a second home in the back yard, a home / office studio or as a first home for a young couple with the ability to add on later with a third bedroom and possibly a single or double garage instead of the carport.

The skillion “Ritek” roof adds a design flair to the home not often seen in domestic architecture.  In reality it is a simple construction, taking a fully insulated, structurally sound and pre-finished system and using it in the simplest for possible.

The materials are all light weight, low maintenance and neutral, allowing the shape of the home to do all of the talking when it comes to style.  There is a great connection to the outside via the sliding doors on both levels.  The upper level sliding doors have a balustrade directly in front, making it feel like the bedroom is the actual veranda.

The hero of the design is the double height living area with a void above.  This gives a striking sense of openness and spaciousness in an otherwise very compact home.  Both levels are flooded with light thanks to the high level windows and ventilation is great, making the home comfortable year round.  Sun in winter, shade / ventilation / breezes in summer.  This design is truly packed with Eco credentials for the above reasons, just begging to be given solar power, solar hot water and rainwater collection to tick all of the boxes.

The double height space allows the bedrooms to open up to the rest of the house via plantation shutters or standard louvres.  For the more daring owners, the bedroom walls opening onto the void can even be done away with and replaced with balustrades, accentuating the openness and casual nature of the design.The ground floor contains the bathroom, laundry, kitchen, living and dining room opening onto a sunny deck.  There is also a single car carport with a laundry / storage locker built in.Upstairs contains 2 bedrooms and a shared powder room for those late night calls of nature, saving a trip downstairs.

Floor area is 100.5 sq m, deck is 26.5 sq m and carport / laundry is 23.8 sq m.

A version with an extra master bedroom suite including ensuite and walk in robe is available on request.
