Martins Creek, Buderim (just off Mons Road).
Sustainable Home Buderim is a refurbishment and extension of an existing 1970s standard brick veneer house. The house is located on a large parcel of land that is being sub-divided to form smaller semi-rural lots (around 2,000m2). The new estate has been developed to include water sensitive design features.

Sustainable design features
As Sustainable Home Buderim is an existing home, it will be altered to better address the site's climate, which has a favourable aspect. This refurbishment will also be integrated with its new extension, which incorporates sustainable design. The existing home is being retained to demonstrate how existing homes can be affordably upgraded by using sustainable design and features.
Existing brick veneer walls and slab on ground floor. New lightweight construction and slab on ground.
More information about Sustainable Home Buderim will be posted as it is finalised.
