Paul and Jill found a great North facing but narrow section in the established neighborhood of Papanui, and the Benchmark Homes design team went to work! With the desire to build a home for the sun with plenty of outdoor living space, a double garage large enough to house the boat as well as the car, and a home with extensive storage throughout, their design brief was no short order. Benchmark Homes designed a home which enhanced the sense of space with the addition of a 2.7 ceiling stud in the living areas, which upon entering evokes grandeur, while enhancing that light, airy feeling.
