    I love this style of house. The openness and light are wonderful. I might do a little painting inside but that’s all a matter of taste. This style keeps you from feeling closed in during times you can’t venture outside because of weather or whatever. Lovely home and thank you for sharing.

    I really like the modern look. But, not a fan of the plywood look. I would paint it.

    Its my style open floor plan, modern and off grid.
    I guess using plywood makes it less expensive.
    Eager to learn how much it is.

    Overall quite nice. However, I would be very leery of that woodpile. In my experience snakes are often found in woodpiles, and in Australia almost all of the snakes are poisonous. Makes me wonder if the idea for the woodpile under was from a city boy. I’d be tempted to go with propane or liquid fuel for heat.

      No need to worry about the snakes. The spiders eat them. 😉

        At least it looks like an area where there would no need to worry about drop bears.

    I like how the kitchen/bathroom arrangement divides the space, efficiently reducing the length of plumbing needed. Certainly a beautiful setting, too. I know some like the look of a plywood interior, but if a golden, wood-tone is desired, I’d opt for tongue-and-groove, genuine wood boards. Most plywood emits toxic outgassing; and it’s not cheap, anymore. Real wood or drywall for me! Architecturally, though, this is an attractive home.

      I have found that thinning Titebond II wood glue 50/50 with water then applied to plywood, it gives a nice, amber or golden hue to plywood. Several coats would probably work best. I use it on the canes I make as a finish coat, works nicely, and lasts well. I would imagine other yellow wood glues would work also, but my personal glue preference is the Titebond II.

    The concept (plan), materials and execution are all quite wonderful. It could easily by minimized and still be very functional by narrowing it by several feet. Bedrooms (or any other space) that serve only one function seem wasteful to me if economy is a goal.

    I like this. Great layout and use of space. The floor plan has flexibility for individual changes. The plywood finish is easily changed in planning for something else suitable to the owner. Personally, I would place the kitchen/bathroom division along the rear wall to get full access to a southfacing aspect for solar heat gain in northern climes. The end wall to the bathroom could then be glass bricks or have a frosted internal window to maximise daylight. Simple designs are the easiest to rearrange.
