There is provision in the bathroom for a washing machine and trough, but the pantry could be used as a laundry instead. To enhance the thermal efficiency of the dwelling and provide easier service installation, the house has a cavity wall on the South & East sides. Window area on the South side is also kept to a minimum. This design will comply with a five star energy rating for all climatic regions of Victoria except alpine. The floor plan shown here is for the skillion roof version, but in the pitch roof version the plan is almost identical.

A worksheet for your electrical layout is also included. Comprehensive construction notes are also provided.
