This house has an extremely efficient floorplan and a very small amount of surface area compared to the useable floor area, a trait of 2-storey designs with wall-on-wall layouts.  The shape of the house also lends itself to prefabricated construction techniques.  In two days, the walls and roof were erected using the PANELlite prefabricated system.  The house also features German-made triple glazed windows and a conventional waffle slab with additional insulation underneath and on the edges.
