NEW COTTAGE coming…
Early August 2017 at this stage. Two bedroooms, each with ensuite. Spacious open plan kitchen and lounge. Many eco features including double glazing throughout, eco plywood surfaces and low VOC paints used. Suit two couples or couple with children. Booking calendar will open as we get closer to finishing internal painting and flooring etc. Situated about 200 metres from timber cottage in a private valley setting.
In an attempt to reduce our carbon-footprint, we had 12 Australian made solar panels (Tindo Solar of Adelaide) installed in 2013. Last year (2016) we installed double glazed windows in the lounge (old timber cottage) after reading Alan Cuthberton’s excellent website article:
Every square metre of single 3 mm glass transmits the equivalent energy of an old style 60 watt light globe when the outside temperature is 10 degrees cooler than inside. Main window was nearly 3 square metres so that was a lot of energy lost particularly in the middle of a Mount Cole Winter! Alan was able to organise manufacture of double glazed units that we installed ourselves. Just remove the timber quad and existing glass, insert the new windows, a bit of silicon to gaps, replace the quad and hey presto all finished!
