Now THIS is what I call a holiday house ...


4pm Summer

Plan - Ground FloorSomeone emailed me in support of John Key's bach.  Well, of what John Key and a journalist claim is a bach. 

They reckon it's a beaut bach, just as John Boy obviously does.

Well, I don't.  I know what baches should look like. 

Here's one here.  Yes, I've posted it here before, but here's my own favourite unbuilt bach.  Relaxed.  Casual.  Open.  Expansive.  And yes, it's one I designed
myself.   Let's call it Holiday House 1. (Click on pics to enlarge.)

SectionsUPDATE:  The pictures above show the house in mid-summer, in mid- to late-afternoon, when shade is your friend and the large eaves do their work. 

Here's a picture of the house at the same time of day in mid-winter, showing the penetration of the sun at the time when it's most wanted:
