The post-earthquake Christchurch home has strong Allied SuperSlab foundations, a wood frame and rugged Longrun Colorsteel roofing. Inside, the house becomes ‘la maison’ with deft touches creating the French look required. The kitchen has a French provincial aesthetic with rugged appliances, cast iron cabinet han- dles, a wood benchtop and rustic tile splashback. The plank floor adds to the French feel, as does the crafted cabinetry in the open-plan living spaces. In terms of functionality, the pavilion home is well organised, warm and quiet. The double garage and open-plan living spaces are to the left of entry and the three bedrooms and study on the right. The home also has two bathrooms. With gas hot water, a fire, a ceiling cassette heatpump and carpet in key areas, the home is a perfect match for the local changeable climate. “We are very proud that 95% of our work is from repeat business,” says Stanicich. “And we want all clients, including those new to this country, to have the confidence to build with us.” For details, contact Fowler Homes Christ- church, 506 Blenheim Rd, Christchurch, phone (03) 341 2124.
