Home Truths

A few home truths about building a home and all that surrounds it.

Whether you work from home or are just spending more time indoors due to COVID-19 restrictions, you’ll have noticed your energy bills are higher than ever. Heater on all day, clothes dryer whirring, iPads charging, and Wi-Fi ramped to capacity – sound familiar? Running an energy-efficient home involves more than you might think. It goes beyond turning lights off, asking the kids to pop on a jumper, and buying appliances with high energy star ratings – it’s about getting the bones right when you build.

A compact block doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice space for you and your family, it simply means you need to be smarter about your home design. Metricon can help you capitalise on the potential of a smaller block with a range of home designs created specifically to maximise the space. Here’s our guide to take advantage of your compact block.
