The first thing I’d like to talk about is the temperature. When the house was being built in the middle of
a very hot dry summer, I would come home from work and unlock the door and the first thing I noticed
was how cool it was inside. We used Comfortone glass and louvres were positioned to catch the
prevailing north east breeze and provide excellent cross ventilation…
We used larger than normal eaves and I have been keeping an eye on the amount of shadowing in
summer and the great solar access in winter. In fact the whole house is filled with natural light so there
is never any need for lights on during the day. All the rooms are well placed and the carport keeps the
hot western sun off the house.
It is now winter and due to the fan blades being rotated in reverse in the family room, there is no sense
of a cooling breeze, instead the warm air drawn up to the ceiling from there falls down the walls and
keeps the house at a constant 20 degrees in winter. We only have a very small gas heater that helps
keep the whole house warm in prolonged cold and overcast weather. In the atrium we have the ceiling
fans on low and it also pushes all the warm air back down to the living areas downstairs.

of and I can’t believe how much I love living in it”.
