January 27, 2015 Beach House Design
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.

Hedges and privacy fences are necessities for many people. Privacy fences do more than just give you shade from the watchful eye of others, however; they keep pets off of your lawn (or in your yard), they provide a sense of seclusion, and they can be aesthetically pleasing. Still, many people don’t have privacy fences or hedges because they think it will cost a lot of money to have someone build one. That may be true, but you can eliminate that problem by simply building it yourself. By planting the right trees, you can build a perfect privacy fence at a minimal cost. Here are some things to keep in mind for a do-it-yourself privacy fence.
