The dining area has lovely views over the patio with ample seating, perfect to enjoy family or romantic meals together. The kitchen is well-equipped with electric oven and hob, plenty of storage space, drop down table and wine cooler/fridge. Next is the fantastic sauna room with glass door. Followed by the lovely shower room with shower and WC. Completing the ground floor is the wonderful kids twin bedroom, with fantastic fire engine bedsteads and funky sleeping bags (please note they are only suitable for children up to the of age of 12 years). Heading up the ladder, you will find the spacious master bedroom, with lovely comfy king-size bed, TV, dressing table and the gated lockable fireman’s pole.

    So am the first comment! 😀 Love this. I want that pole. This is beautiful inside and out. Perfectly designed. Nothing that I don’t like. The beds are so cool. The deck and table is inviting. Now I will go eat some lunch.

    Top floor looks like a death trap – in case of fire. The windows do not look like one can get out of them – too narrow, unless one is really skinny. I would definitely put in an emergency opening.

      Mind the height, it’s not exactly safe to just drop down to the ground when it’s that high… So the fire pole that drops you right down in front of the glass sliding doors will be a first choice of rapid egress.

      For families, this also means quick access to the kids room to assure they are safe on the way out… and the kids room has a door for another way to rush everyone out in case the fire is too close to the sliding glass doors that would be quicker than going through the windows… Plus easier for kids and elderly to get out…

      That said a secondary egress option would be preferable for backup, along with being required if this was in the states, and I’d recommend a forward end trap door to get on top of the front vehicle section. So you can more easily lower yourself to the ground and possibly have a drop down rope ladder to make that even easier… Plus have quick access to that kids room door to make sure they got out without having to go back in through the sliding glass doors…

      Though, the couch converts into a bed to avoid going upstairs and being right next to the sliding glass doors… But the kids room is only suitable for kids up to age 12… So may need the couch bed, if the kids are older, for them…

      They can also consider converting the roof of the front section into a patio roof deck and just have a door then to access it… Adds a nice above ground space to enjoy the view of the area with your favorite beverage and still provides an easy egress option with one section of the railing could be a kick down ladder or drop down stairs… Along with making the kids room less noisy when it rains…

    DPedersen, I have noticed that you seem unable to make a comment that isn’t a criticism in some way. There was a nice THoW in New Zealand which you claim is overpriced, maybe by the US market but normal for some other countries. This house is apparently a death trap unless you are lucky enough to be skinny. Both these comments have been levelled at other THoWs as well. If you can’t be nice or make a genuinely constructive remark then don’t say anything. The UK has a high compliance requirement for living places, much higher than many countries, so I very much doubt this is a death trap foir anybody who isn’t skinny. If you must criticise try focussing on the fact that it seems every THoW has a big TV screen, and, especially in the US, a washer/dryer and AC unit. Neither are eco friendly and almost every THoW has all of the above. Unnecessary, expensive, wasting resources which the owners/builders claim to want to save, criticise them if you must. Otherwise your comments are your oiwn personal opinions unless backed up by the relevant govt laws or, price wise, examples of similar THoWs of the same standard in the same country for less $s.

    It’s a complex change, a variation on a brillant and creative theme…
