I went to visit a wonderful strawbale house of former clients in Trentham, something I co-designed while working for Helen Bernard Architect about 8 years back. While the owners are moving for a lifestyle change they have been very happy with the performance of their home through the extremes of the season, and its looking in fantastic condition. We called this the 'Telescope House' because it had a runway with a landing pad for a large telescope that could be wheeled out of the house to gaze at the clear night skies. Did I mention the house is for sale? Check out Keatings Real Estate. Photos courtesy of Keatings.
