NEXT SITUPS!

We have been developing our next size of Super Insulated Tilt-Up Panels this time 2.7 metres high by the same widths ranging from 600 mm to 1.2 metres.  We are also manufacturing 2.450 metre high panels and have enough stock on hand for a small SITUP house.  The 2.7 m SITUPS are working out well:

SITUPS Reflections on the Mudgee Home

We are very happy with the result with this SITUP house near Mudgee and we know that this system has a lot to promise for the future of straw bale building and the environment.

Our Own Straw Bale Home

We believe that if you are going to be convincing in anything that you do then you should be convinced yourself.  That is why we live in our own straw bale house.  It is now 15 years since we brought straw bale building to Australia and for the past 12 years we have had the amazing benefits of living in a straw bale home made up of 7 pavilions.

Our own home filmed by Better Homes and Gardens in Ganmain this is where we live and we love our straw bale home.

 

Thank you Better Homes and Gardens and especially Johanna Griggs, ENJOY!

 

 

Rendering Well Under Way

Back home after a few days on the latest SITUPS Home.  The rendering team of Peter and Adam are doing a great job and have done two coats and meshed on the outside and one coat completed on the inside and started the second coat on the inside.  As well the two long walls that front the courtyard are also ready for cladding.

Our client has also done a remarkable job coordinating all the trades and having all the materials sourced and delivered.  It has been a pleasure working on this building and Susan and I look forward to seeing the finished home.   The RITEK roof is a beauty and has a high R value for insulation that compliments our SITUPS.  Well done Mandy!
