Habitat’s crowning glory is its roof – a complex arrangement of planes and slopes that snake the length of the site. The second storey is defined by the front apex, helping it nestle into the trees, before sloping down over the garage and carport. Enjoy our latest site photos, including a video at the end of the post.

From upstairs, the visible roof planes at the rear of the house guide the eye towards the view of the ranges. Inside, this allows the lower level open plan space a generous sloping ceiling.

 We are using Coloursteel from Metalcraft in the new profile ‘Kahu’, in the colour Flaxpod. This profile has a double capillary overlap to the side lap which gives a greater weather performance.

It’s a great feeling to have the roof complete in time for Christmas – we’re closing the site for a few weeks to spend time with family and friends – but looking forward to cracking into the interior when we are back.
