I dream of a cabin in the bush.
.
A little bolt hole, to escape to on weekends. A place to unplug, de-stress, listen to the birds and feel the rain.
.
A place like this stunning ‘cabin’ designed by Brian Steendijk for a pair of enlightened clients, in the range south-west of Brisbane.
.
A girl can dream, right?
.
If you dream of cabins too, check out my article in @sanctuarymag or on my website (link in bio). And drop your cabin must-have items below; I’m always finessing my dream in my head!!

I am pretty sure Mother Nature is turning it on with the weather just so I can kick back on my new deck. Note, it will never have a cover/roof over it because this is north facing and therefore we don't want to shade the north facing windows in winter (passive free heating!). In the summer the eaves shade the windows from the sun so we stay comfy all year round...well that's the plan anyway 🤓.

Thermal mass, noise reduction, low maintenance, strong and durable, fireproof, load bearing and most importantly Environment Friendly.
These are some qualities of rammed earth construction that can think of. What do you know about rammed earth construction?

Project by Architects Xavier and Damien Huyberechts
made by different earth construction techniques: #btc #rammedearthwall #superadobe
_____
Year of construction 2015/2018 at Witklipfontein Farm, Schoemansdrift road, Vredefort dome, #SouthAfrica
_____
The #architecture is a unique combination of traditional #vernacular #building techniques with #modern #minimalistic #design
_____
Brothers and Architects, Damien and Xavier #Huyberechts combined their vast experience and passion for nature to create this unique living environment
_____
The #earthdome (#superadobe ) carved into the hillside with a #zenithal oculus as only #natural light source is suitable for meditation or watching a movie without bothering the rest of the guests.
_____
#Rammedearth walls for keep a perfect temperature insidie The house. #Thermalmass accumulated heat from the sun during the day and releases it during the night inside the #house
——-
Also #hygroscopic property for regulation of #humidity inside the house.

This to me, is our future! I grew up growing all of our food, canning hundreds of quarts a year, raising every kind of animal. Hunting, fishing.
Chop wood, carry water. Connects one with the earth.

Today I'll be here, doing Tax and BAS. I will not get side tracked under any circumstances. I will stay here until the job is done. I am a determined, intelligent woman who knows this job must be done TODAY. Oh look...pretty pictures on Instagram 🙈.

It's going to be a scorcher here today, so I thought I'd give you a quick report on how the house has been handling the heat. 
I'm pretty pleased to say it's doing a fantastic job {insert sigh of relief}. The house is strategically  shaded with eaves and external blinds and the exposed concrete slab (thermal mass) soaks up much of the heat throughout the day. Of an evening we throw open the south and north doors (creating a direct path for cross ventilation) and let the cooler night temps flush out the stored heat. When we get up in the morning we shut the house up and repeat the process all over again. We also have an evap aircon which we run guilt free when required as we have excess amounts of solar power this time of year. So far, we have not had one day this summer when I have thought 'gee it's a bit uncomfortable in here'. Will see how we go with 42 degrees today....

Thermal mass, three tons of it in filter gravel. Bloody glad to finally have this done 😜👍😅 #selfsufficientnz #thermalmass #frostkiller #soilwarmer.

Greenhouse goals!! Day 19 of the #modernhomesteadchallenge .
.
When we finally get to building our #greenhouse , we're going underground.  The desert temperatures here can swing wildly, having a 45 degree difference between day and night. The #walipini will be a great way to utilize #thermalmass and #passivesolar to help regulate the temperatures. .
.
Not only that, but we may also venture into #aquaponics at that time. Creating a #closedloop nutrition system between plants and animals. .
