Built to cater to a family working on a larger, permanent build, this relocatable house is going places! But while it’s still nestled on the outskirts of Timaru, its residents can enjoy the relaxing setting and rugged appeal of their temporary home.
With a monopitch roof, Colorsteel cladding and cedar soffits with negative detail, this home has a timeless feel. The rustic but modern charm is present inside too. A cedar and plywood raked ceiling graces the kitchen, dining and living areas. The kitchen boasts additional floor-to-ceiling cupboards. A computer nook is nestled nicely into the hallway space. A rich and vibrant colour scheme links to the outside. Floor-to-ceiling windows and doors around two full sides of the living space are designed to take in stellar views of the surrounding countryside. Step over the living room threshold onto a huge kwila hardwood deck and look up to discover the stunning cedar has made the journey outside too. Framed with steel, a set of kwila steps lead onto the grassy section. The rest of the deck takes on a floating effect. Four large boulders are like paperweights on the edge, drawing attention to the slant of the monopitch roof above. Limited by the maximum area available for transportation, the home’s 165sqm floor plan makes good use of space. Three wardrobe-equipped bedrooms and a separate laundry cater well to family life. With no architraves or skirtings, square-stopped door and window frames create clean, uncluttered lines throughout. A wood fire, two heat pumps and plenty of glass ensure this will remain a warm, comfortable and light-filled home, wherever its final destination ends up being.
