Ben Suttor Plumbing

Client example - New home, Rylstone

Ben Suttor Plumbing worked with builder, Robert Bowles, for the completion of this new home.

The client firstly built a large shed, which was converted in to a temporary home, so that they could live on site during the build. All the plumbing for the shed was installed with the view that it would also be adequate for the 4 bedroom home when it was completed.

The land on which the house was built sits high on a hill, overlooking the beautiful Rylstone valley, with lush grazing lands and mountain ranges as its vista. It has a northerly aspect and as such was built with large expanses of windows on the north and eastern sides of the home.

The home consists of many plumbing areas including a large, modern chef’s kitchen; laundry, family bathroom and ensuite from the main bedroom, solar hot water system, rainwater tank and septic system.

The home was completed in 2007, and as such, had to follow in line with the BASIX checklists when submitting their DA to Mid Western Regional Council. They had a Hills solar hot water system installed and a large water tank for the house. Taps and showers were installed with flow monitors to help in the saving of water.

The home is like so many new homes which are being built in that the aspect of the house, the features and fittings, as well as the layout, all complement the environment in which the house is built.

Taking advantage of the north-facing aspect to reduce heating and cooling costs; installing a solar hot water system to reduce their consumption of fossil fuels; as well as installing a large water tank for the collection of rainwater are all not only good environmental choices but are good financial choices as well.
