The beginning of construction is near

The beginning of construction is near

We had to experience another winter in our owned leaky apartment unit. Bought the unit in 2016 and never imagined that the apartment complex built in 2009 would be part of the famous New Zealand leaky housing syndrome. The worse is that even now such poor quality homes are still being built, partially due to a lack of pride in delivering a genuine quality work/product to the end customer.

The good thing is that it will be remediated in 2022 (currently scheduled for April 2022) but the bad thing is that we might be homeless while waiting for our new home to be completed.

We now have the long-awaited Building and Resource Consent. More concerns about some practices and attitudes in the building industry but we will share some of them at a later stage. We want to celebrate this milestone for now. Thank you to everyone who was involved up to this stage so far.

A few more days to go before commencing earthwork activities on site. Stay tuned and let the construction begin!

Today we are officially a very proud landowner of our lot in the brand new Pacific Heights Development in Orewa.

Title received !

It took more than 7 months for the Auckland Council. We stayed positive & good things take time.

We now finalize the house design & pricing for our passive house. Stay tuned!

We don’t build houses. We are just a young couple wanting to inspire others to build healthy homes.

Prof. Dr. Feist said: Can we still solve the climate crisis? 

DEFINITELY: If we soon decide to act meaningfully. AND: We then act in accordance with this decision.

Last week we participated in an international webinar with the founder of Passive House Institute Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Feist. Very informative about the impressive passive house projects around the world. New Zealand has to speed up in building healthy homes.
