Sneaky Peak : LiFEHOUSES

I stayed with my gorgeous sister Rob, on Thursday night in Castlemaine. Rob and her husband Paul own Lifehouse Design and have just moved into their new home.

They have recently designed a ‘modular’ product called LiFEHOUSESHere is an excerpt from their website:

An affordable sustainable designer home

The LiFEHOUSE is our answer to building a home that addresses your needs, is beautiful, comfortable and highly efficient to run.

Designed for your environment

The LiFEHOUSE is a new concept that allows you to personalise the design in a number of ways to suit the orientation of your land, number of rooms required, external finishes, outdoor living spaces and interior joinery preferences.

Designed for efficiency

We designed the LiFEHOUSE to produce less waste during the construction process.

  • Standard materials dimensions are incorporated into the design
  • Efficient space planning ensures minimal use of materials
  • Materials and finishes that require minimal or no coating or finishing are used, saving on resources and maintenance


One, two, three, four bedrooms, add a study, minus a verandah, you choose which modules to include….

  • Pitched or skillion roof to suit different sites and preferences
  • Corrugated iron, shiplap timber boards, fibre cement or Ecoply sheet cladding
  • Concrete slab on ground or timber floor
  • Timber or aluminium framed windows and doors
  • Flexible joinery options

I always love staying with Rob and Paul as they have exquisite taste in furniture, art, music and food!  I feel like I am on a little retreat when I visit.
