ISLAND BAY HOUSE: MEET OUR NEW PROJECT!


hi! remember us?

For those who watched our experience on The Block all those years ago, or have since found our work through our brand A&C Homestore, we thought you might be interested to follow along with our latest project, a slightly unconventional house build designed for our growing family in the Auckland suburb of Beach Haven. Please meet our Island Bay House.

We’ll be sharing highlights on our A&C Homestore blog, but on our project site, you can read about each step of the project, meet the people and partners helping us to make it happen and get ready to see the big reveal, room by room. Here’s a little sneak peek…

the land.

The land we purchased in 2015 has offered us many challenges, yet these challenges have become the strengths in the final design. Now, the groundwork is done and gee whiz have we got a few stories for you about how we got here (you can read all about it on our build journal).

the project.

This house won't be a traditional build in any way. It’s a priority to us that the house performs far better than your conventional home in terms of thermal efficiency and durability, and therefore the engineering and building methods are quite unique. We look forward to sharing them with you!

the design.

There is a luxury that comes with choosing to build your own home, and that is you get to choose the brief around how you personally want to use it. Working with our talented friend, architect Fraser Horton, we couldn’t be more exited with our final design.
