Strawbridge House

Solabode Mk2 - 2BR with carport, Levin
Go Back

This is a standard Solabode Mk2 - 2BR with a carport and garden shed for Tony and Leonie Strawbridge in central Levin. The site was one of 4 sharing a right of way and subdivided from an old original homestead. There are still some concrete foundations from an old glasshouse on the property which provide a decent levelled area that just needs a little more earthworks to allow the 117m2 Solabode to sit nicely with excellent north aspect for solar gain in winter. This slightly elevated site also provides eastern views to the Tararua's and several established native trees in the south quadrant provide for privacy and birdlife, providing this modest property with its own little environment.

As with all Solabode designs; Maxraft 100% insulated exposed thermal mass floor slab, 140 thick Douglas fir external wall frames fully insulated with R3.2 Terralana wool insulation. A 2.7m stud height in the main space with two layers of Terralana ceiling insulation to provide an R4.5 rating. Double clear glazed low E windows to complete this super insulated home.
