Custom Built Home

HIA-CSR SA Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards

Winner: Hocking Constructions

The emphasis on low maintenance, energy efficiency, and off-grid design in this house truly reflects a commitment to sustainable living and self-sufficiency. By prioritizing these aspects, the homeowners are not only reducing their environmental footprint but also creating a more resilient and cost-effective living space.

The meticulous attention to detail in the construction process, particularly evident in the exterior cladding and split-level design, speaks to the craftsmanship and expertise of Hocking Constructions. The inclusion of underfloor heating in all bathrooms and utility areas, as well as the incorporation of a structural steel cabinet for firewood storage, highlights both comfort and functionality.

The kitchen stands out as a focal point of the home, with its expansive stone bench and breathtaking views across the valley. The integration of storage solutions, such as timber veneer doors and a floating bookshelf in the library, demonstrates a thoughtful approach to space utilisation.

Sustainable features such as rainwater harvesting, solar power, and a backup battery system not only aligns with the client's environmental values but also serves practical purposes, especially in a high-risk bushfire zone. The innovative firefighting system, including roof sprinklers and a remote-controlled petrol pump, further enhances the property's resilience in the face of potential threats.
