Tasman’s First AAC Block YTONG® House For Sale
Tasman’s First Energy Efficient AAC Block YTONG® House For Sale
The first home of its kind to be built in the Nelson-Tasman region using a sustainable building system invented in Europe is for sale.
The luxury home is architecturally crafted with European made AAC (Aerated Autoclaved Concrete) Block YTONG®, which are internationally acclaimed for their earthquake resistance, light weight, energy efficiency and environmental compatibility.
Property owner, Christel Twiehaus, who is also the official New Zealand distributor for AAC Block YTONG® along with her partner Glen French, says the home combines a number of sustainable concepts
“Ytong blocks have become increasingly popular and are now used in thirty countries all around the world, however they have only recently been introduced to New Zealand - this is the first home of its kind to be built in the Nelson-Tasman region,” says Ms Twiehaus.
“Sustainability was a primary design focus in the creation of this property, so we have implemented a number of other green building products and innovations, such as Earth Wool eco insulation, Ecodure Oakwood (Bamboo) flooring, and thermally broken window frames.
Houses built with Ytong blocks are free from condensation, earthquake resistant and allergy-free, so a great option for allergy and asthma sufferers - and a fantastic building solution for the New Zealand climate.”
