Energy efficiency and smart living in the Bay of Plenty

Nestled in a lush avocado orchard in the rural Bay of Plenty is a modern and energy efficient home with clever technology at its heart.

“We were looking to get back to nature,” says owner Alistair. “Coming from Auckland it was a real change, and to build a house as we’ve done now, it’s just transformed our lives.”

“We’ve gone with PDL because of the quality and the craftsmanship they have in their products,” says Alistair. “When you use a quality product, life becomes easy because the functionality is so much simpler.”

For Carol and Alistair, the time spent on planning and design was well worth it for the energy efficient and technologically intuitive home they have created. “It’s warm, it’s inviting, it looks beautiful. We just love it here, we struggle to leave.”

Hear it from them.
