Wild At Heart Outdoor Living



"Before starting our house build we approached a quality joiner in town who we knew well and trusted. We asked him to recommend a builder to us. He told us there is only one builder he works with that gives him a square corner and a straight wall every time. He then handed us the contact details for Beechtree Building Ltd. After a couple of meetings with Simon and viewing some of his work the decision to choose Beechtree Building was easy. One thing that really stands out about Simon is that he never gets flustered or bothered when things are not going smoothly. In fact, he is the most honest and even tempered person that we have had the privilege of meeting. These attributes combined with his unrelenting attention to detail mean that the building process was an absolute pleasure for us and the end result exceeds our wildest expectations. Simon, Kylie and the Beechtree team get a double thumbs up and a 5 star rating from us."

The client’s passion for the great outdoors was the inspiration for the design of this character-filled house. Natural stone, timber and polished concrete used in the home’s exterior flow through the grand entrance, and can be found dotted around the interior.

Hand-crafted cedar elements are positioned to ensure continuity of design, while custom cedar light fixtures add a touch of warmth. The streamlined black kitchen is designed to catch the eye – clerestory windows bathe the area in light and reflect the colours found in the titanium gold natural granite benchtop.

The striking 270sqm house sits on an exposed east-west axis, positioned to make the most of views of Lake Taupō and its surrounds. Triple-glazed timber joinery maintains the inside temperature while showcasing the scenery.

Solar panels help to power ventilation and ducted heating and a rainwater collection system with 25,000l tank and UV filtration system supplies the home and garden with water year round.Outside you’ll find a fire with polished concrete floating hearth, and a LouvreTec roof system for shelter.
