Is it Time for Septic Pumping?

January 27, 2015 Guest Post


Your septic system is one of the most important (yet overlooked) utilities in your home. It is constantly working to treat and dispose of your household water waste, so it is important to maintain your system.

When your household water leaves your home for treatment, the first place it stops during the treatment process is the septic tank. Your septic tank must be properly maintained to work correctly.

Beach House Design


Pekapeka Beach House Holiday House Design by Parsonson Architects Pekapeka Beach House, Holiday Home Design by Parsonson Architects

Pekapeka Beach House is holiday home was designed by Parsonson Architects. Located in Pekapeka Beach, Wellington, New Zealand. This home was an exploration in how to create a building of both a strong architectural character and economy. Used simple modular construction techniques combined with a very simple form in design.

The plan is a rectangle and is divided into 3 parts, the solid bedroom forms at each end support a floating roof over the living space in between. This layout allows the living room to face both east to hills and west to the sea. It allows sun into the house throughout the day, for passive solar heating of the concrete slab and creates a sheltered outside space on the east side that still keeps a strong connection to the western sea views.
