I dream of a cabin in the bush.
.
A little bolt hole, to escape to on weekends. A place to unplug, de-stress, listen to the birds and feel the rain.
.
A place like this stunning ‘cabin’ designed by Brian Steendijk for a pair of enlightened clients, in the range south-west of Brisbane.
.
A girl can dream, right?
.
If you dream of cabins too, check out my article in @sanctuarymag or on my website (link in bio). And drop your cabin must-have items below; I’m always finessing my dream in my head!!

If you are building or renovating make sure you stick a whole heap of glass on the north side and shade it appropriately, because I promise you it will make you happy every damn day for ever after #sunmakesmehappy ☀️.

Thermal mass, noise reduction, low maintenance, strong and durable, fireproof, load bearing and most importantly Environment Friendly.
These are some qualities of rammed earth construction that can think of. What do you know about rammed earth construction?

Have you ever wondered what impact having a polished concrete floor will make to the temperature of your home? @sanctuarymag says it this way:

Have you ever wondered what impact having a polished concrete floor will make to the temperature of your home? @sanctuarymag says it this way: "Concrete is a brilliant material not only because it is strong, moldable and long-lasting – it also has a lot of thermal mass. "An important extra dimension is its conductivity, and these come together in passive solar design as follows: in winter the low angled sun penetrates the north-facing glazing, striking the top surface of the concrete floor slab. "The conductivity of the concrete allows the heat to spread deep into its thickness, and the thermal mass absorbs it, gradually building up until the sun sets, when that heat is returned to the room. "Then in summer, the well-designed building’s perfect shading angles exclude all sun, allowing the thermal mass to soak up any discomfort inside the house, whereupon it is dumped to the cool night air when the windows are thrown open after dark."

The bread 🥖🍞🥨🔥oven
-
Some time after we discovered we could make fire, ok so a far wack of time after, we discovered how to make bread. And then people, probably at about the same time we discovered how to make a bread oven.

Now a bread oven is a particular thing. It works through thermal mass collecting & storing heat, which is then dumped back inside the oven as the oven cools down, meaning that the oven keeps on radiating heat even as the fire inside is dying down. This is because the thermal dephasing time of the mass (bricks 🧱 or stone or clay or what ever the oven is made from) is long enough that the heat can’t escape to the outside of the structure....too much info, probably yes, but I love this stuff. Anyhoo, we are lucky enough to have said bread oven at La Caussade & recently we remade the chimney (as in on the roof, as it had been removed at some stage & the oven was hence decommissioned). This particular bread oven is more of the medieval persuasion with a vast & cavernous clay brick dome on the inside and a chimney in front. Last weekend we fired 🔥 her up for the first time...in well who knows how long...maybe 60 years, maybe 100, maybe  200.... (we were obliged to celebrate with champagne 🥂🍾) & she works & she’s beautiful & we made slow cooked beef (kind of osso-buco style) which we cooked for 8hrs ⏳(!!) & the world was a happy place 🌎. Tomorrow we have friends coming over to test out her pizza making capabilities 🍕...stay tuned bat people 🦇 (I know the suspense is unbearable 😆)

This picture from the past popped up on my memories today and it brought me back to the day when I was getting my groove on, hand cutting each if these grout lines into the concrete floor.  Then applying an acid stain, to create this beautiful one of a kind finish. This floor is the FOUNDATION, HEATING and COOLING SYSTEM and FINISHED FLOOR of this home, ALL in ONE. #greenbuilding #radiantfloorheating #acidstainedconcrete #greenbuildingonsteriods #thermalmass.
