The Build is nearing completion, and Ralph takes us through the final stages of the interior designs. Final finishes and commissioning were all being run, which again required more sequencing!

Staircases make up the main traffic ways around, up and down the 5×4 building, and with that comes necessary safety precautions. This generally means installing bulky balustrades to keep people slipping off the edges, however within our tight space this would have reduced the sense of space between floors within the building.
The solution? Glass Balustrades.
These are made with heavy-duty glass, and attached around the stairs.
All the appliances are now installed and ready for action. It is quite a slick line up, every appliance fitting into the contemporary design of the compact ecosystem. Here’s the list:
Our Wall Systems comprises of 12 components – all doing their bit to conserve energy.
Both on the inside and the outside of the Wall System is Zero VOC Paint and Stain. Most paints or stains release toxic emissions into the air even after that ‘new paint smell’ disappears. These toxins are VOCs, or Volatile Organic Compounds, which improves the performance and longevity of paint. Until recently, these were essential to the manufacturing of paint, however our fellow environmentalist consumers have demanded the development of low-VOC or zero-VOC paints and finishes. Companies have refined their formulas, and are producing finishes that are as cost effective and durable as VOC paint, but also less harmful to the environment.
