The outlook reminds Mrs Thomp- son of Scotland. I feel very much at home but it is so much more beautiful. You could be in the middle of nowhere but we are so close to town.'' Mr Thompson's work at the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority has inspired a number of sustainable features including Econo Panel heating, a wood burner, open fire with wetback, double glazing, bamboo flooring on a wooden floor (designed to trap passive heating), underfloor insulation, almost double the standard for wall and ceiling insulation using polyester fibre and insulation in internal walls to baffle the noise of the occasional freight train. They also used chemical-free paint from Resene, wool carpet, LED lights where possible and a built-in venti- lation system. Mrs Thompson says builder Ross Hammersley-Myers was fantastic'' to work with. He happily took on the challenges of some unusual features. It was the first time Mr Hammersley-Myers had entered the competition. He began his appren- ticeship with award-winning Geoff Lindsay of Lindsay Residential. Delighted by the bronze award, Mr Hammersley-Myers' next aim is a higher award. Building the house in the cold win- ter of 2009 had been a challenge. But his clients had been good to work for as they knew exactly what they wanted. However, with a youngster and the time Mr Thompson spends commut- ing to work, the couple are contem- plating selling their dream property to move closer to Wellington. Another award, page 6 HOUSE OF THE YEAR Clean lines: This four-bedroom Whitemans Valley Rd home, which features extra height windows so its owners can make the most of sun and take in the spectacular rural views, won Landmark Homes a silver award. A huge window from floor to angled ceiling makes up one wall of the open plan living-dining- kitchen area and is a stunning feature of the home. Self- stacking doors on another wall open out to an expansive decked area, as do similar doors from a formal lounge. This gives the home excellent indoor outdoor flow. The modern clean lines which fit perfectly in its country environment include timber floors in the kitchen-dining areas and hallways, a striking stone fireplace surround in the lounge, solid double entry doors, a massive designer kitchen with stainless appliances and walk-in pantry, guest suite, luxury tiled bathrooms with extensive use of hardwood vanities and much more. Cozy: This Maymorn Waters home won a bronze award for Stonewood Homes. A European design, open plan kitchen is centrally located creating the heart of the home. Its 30mm granite bench top, state of the art appliances and soft close hardware are appealing while a large scullery serves as a practical area to hide any unwanted clutter. This four- bedroom, three-living room home is built with brick exterior and interior feature walls to capture thermal heat. This is supplemented by an efficient heating system comprising a mixture of the latest vertical radiators and traditional horizontal types. The heating unit is a combination 28kW boiler in the garage, which provides heating for the radiators and also domestic hot water for the ensuite and laundry. The system incorporates a digital controller panel. The main bathroom and the kitchen are run independently by a continuous water heater with a digital controller to enable the water temperature to be set by the owner. With a view: This Mt Marua home, packed with features and designed for a young family, has won David Reid Homes (Kapiti) a bronze award. The owner's brief was a home which fitted with the requirements of the subdivision as well as integrating into the environment and creating family- friendly areas and a private adults' space, and with spectacular views. Connecting the inside with outside was a significant consideration for the owners. With an exposed site, retaining the existing natural bush to deflect the wind was important. A cedar pergola, wired for sound, set overlooking the bush connects indoors with outdoors and makes entertaining a breeze. The home is energy efficient with solid concrete floors to capture and retain solar heat, cedar sun shades to deflect the harsh summer sun yet allowing the winter sun to stream into the house below them. This, combined with high levels of insulation and double glazing, has created a warm home with breathtaking views, which satisfies all members of the family.
