EEH Inclusions                 (Draft)
Overview for Lock up shell version only


This is a general list.

Prior to purchasing a home, all inclusions are listed for you in advance.

Highly detailed "Blueprints" Plans & Elevations Ready for council, all home designs pre-certified by a NZ approved building certifier, prior to  presentation to council. Only a lot plan with home location and foundation will need to be generated locally. Some Localities require a Geotec report indicating the sub surface structural integrity, this may require a change in the design of  footing/foundations/piles.
Ext Framing Exterior framing 140 x 45 (6x2) pre-cut with 13mm H3 plywood & Tyvek for total wind rejection, and moisture release.
Interior framing 90 x 45 (4x2) Except Plumbing wall will be 140 x 45 6x2, all wood to be "Export Quality", heat treated and kiln dried

  • Nailing fin to float the window and seal the hole.
Insulation R 3.5 (150mm) in 6x2 walls. 6x2 walls not only increase the structural integrity by almost 300%, but also allow us to put 150mm of insulation in the walls, AND provides you with a super thick wall that reduces noise ingress considerably.

Optional ICF Walls are normally R3, to R3.8 (Eco-blocks)

R 5.2 to Opt 7.0 (300mm) in exterior ceilings

This can be considered the maximum realistic insulation value for your money.
