John & Debbie set out to achieve an energy efficient home in Welcome Bay, Tauranga. ZJ Builders were approached once the plans were complete and worked very closely with John and Debbie throughout the build to achieve their desired effects to their new home.

This build was constructed using a panel system which provides great insulation values with very little thermal loss, which in turn, makes it a very efficient home.

John and Debbie have grown passionate about building smarter, energy efficient homes and have set up their new home be a show home, showcasing that there’s trendy alternatives out there from the traditional building methods which provide much more than just a home.

Features of this home include:

  • 3 Bedrooms
  • 3 Bathrooms
  • Separate guest quarters/home office
  • Double garaging
  • UPVC tripple glazed joinery
  • Worm septic system
  • Rain water harvesting
