Natimuk Off Grid Home
Natimuk Modular Home 3

Glenn and Karen couldn’t be happier with their 146 sq m three-bedroom home on the Wimmera plains. Oriented to the north, with deep eaves, external blinds and surrounded by decks and grape-covered pergolas, it repels the summer sun and welcomes it in during winter. It is well insulated, and thermally broken windows prevent heat and cold transfer.

They have enough surplus energy to supply their neighbours? McCorkell says.

Glenn says: “We’re not connected to the grid so we’re not paying for it and it would be wasted energy anyway. We put three split systems in the house. But we’ve got a 12.7kw solar system and a very large battery array. We never run out of energy. We’ve always got way more than we need.”

Glenn and Karen build a sustainable green home,” Glenn says. “We liked the concept of a prefab modular design [now 3% of the new-build market] and the idea of factory construction because there’s less construction waste involved.”
