We are only a few weeks away from completion of the Helensvale modular granny flat! The roof is on and so its over to the interior fit out crew to fit out and dress up this frame work. Exciting Times…
As Helensvale is creeping closer to completion on the other side of town we have our frame up at Redbank Plains, QLD.
The wave of modular style living is taking on many forms as ingenuity and craftsmanship is meshing to create unique and freer lifestyles for those more idealistic minds among us.
This movement also incorporates many of the standards and inspirational aspects of the sustainability movement by encouraging the incorporation of recycled and discarded materials, while also minimising the waste of energy through integrated smart systems such as composting toilets, solar systems and reduced ground impact. The above video highlighted a wonderful story about a boat builder/carpenter who tasked himself with the challenge of creating his very first commissioned Tiny House project.
Please view to discover the many amazing insights this revolutionary new take on the traditional style of living may hold for you.
“The small house movement is a return to houses of less than 1,000 square feet (93 m2). Frequently the distinction is made between small (between 400 square feet (37 m2) and 1,000 square feet (93 m2)), and tiny houses (less than 400 square feet (37 m2)), with some as small as 80 square feet (7.4 m2). Sarah Susanka has been credited with starting the recent countermovement toward smaller houses when she published The Not So Big House (1997). Earlier pioneers include Lloyd Kahn, author of Shelter (1973) and Lester Walker, author of ″Tiny Houses″ (1987). Henry David Thoreau, and the publication of his book “Walden” is also quoted as early inspiration” – (wiki/Tiny_house_movement)
Frames are up, trusses are in place, time for the roof.
It was all happening down at the River Tree Granny Flat site in Helensvale. The previous granny flat pictured below was in need of a slight expansion so the Team Austranquility were called in to make some much needed adjustments.
On Tuesdays the footings and facility escavations were dug and subsequently filled with cement, primed and ready to receive our materials and construct this momentous flat of the granny persuasion.
Even the bee man was busy today tending to the site, which the owners have quite elegantly maintained over the years.
The Austranquility team have been busy with many projects, currently we are working with a number of families to personalise their modular granny flat constructions, our projects are located in many regions of South East Queensland. Looking to the future, behind the scenes of Austranquility we’ve been sowing the systematic and technological seeds for advancement and prosperous growth as we gear up for the expansion, diversification and improvement of the Austranquility experience for everyone involved.
In other news the on going project at Boronia Heights is receiving its final touches. Throwing back to September we saw the slab being cleared ready for construction.
By the beginning of February the frame work had been established.
As February drew to a close the Roof of this construction had been topped off.
