Most of us want to save energy and look after our environment. Living in a smaller home does that as it naturally consumes less energy. This means it costs less electricity to run, requiring less heating and cooling.
Where possible Funky Little Shacks are constructed from timber framing and timber flooring on stumps instead of a concrete slab. This construction method is more sustainable for our environment as timber is a renewable resource and it helps to reduce our carbon footprint. This also minimises adverse affect on land, adding to the protection of biodiversity and ecology.
Funky Little Shacks are purposely designed and positioned on site so they can be orientated towards the north. This maximises the efficiency of the sun’s light. Generous verandas shade the home in summer while allowing sunlight to filter through during winter. Meanwhile, strategically positioned windows and sliding doors allow for a natural cross breeze. Ceilings are higher than average to allow hot air to rise, and ceiling vents enable this air to escape.
