Designed by The Rural Building Company, the Capricorn Loft style home is not constrained by conventional wisdom; instead it is unique in its design, building techniques, materials used and its environmental considerations. The house shows off the benefits of integrated construction, using a mix of weatherboards and corrugated metal.

Most homes only have one good side and the rest can look pretty bland... Not the Capricorn Loft!! Rural Building have ensured that the sheer design brilliance is easy on the eye from every facet and angle…you’ll be the envy of all your neighbours no doubt!!

The upstairs studio has been placed either as a sitting room or work area that can capture views through its additional height…you could convert the library to a bathroom or move the master suite into this area. The balcony is large enough to fit an outdoor setting and there’s plenty of space for a barby!

The garage has been placed separately on the block offering access into the foyer at the rear. But it’s also possible to have it on the side of the home allowing direct access through the side of the laundry.

The Capricorn Loft’s kitchen layout was designed by a chef so you as the host can be part of the dinner party. The kitchen has a very functional downdraft exhaust, plus it is also equipped with an appliance cupboard and has load of storage with two pull out pantries.

The bathrooms again demonstrate alternatives with the inset Medina bath, semi-recessed vanities and frameless shower screens. The laundry also shows efficiency with sliding doors, revealing space for a clothes basket and trough.

Integrated construction eliminates waste which in turn has strong financial savings. This style of construction also has some important environmental building considerations. Key environmental benefits of the Capricorn Loft include; passive solar sun gain, grey water recycling system, incandescent globes, gas booted hot water system, dux cold water recycling system and a water wise garden design set-up.

The Rural Building Company know that lifestyle is about personal choice, individuality, sustainability and flair and they are just the builders to create your masterpiece!
