Constructed in the new elevated land swap residential estate created by the government after the devastating floods that ravaged Grantham in 2011, this was the first of several replacement houses designed and built for those whose properties were destroyed.

Constructed in just 5 weeks using a flatpack EPS sandwich panel construction system, the house was officially launched by the Premier of Queensland.

Designed as one of a range of similar houses, the central open plan living area opens to decks at both ends to create a large covered breezeway living space. Sliding walls to both decks allow the extent of natural ventilation to be controlled depending on the direction of the wind at different times of day or throughout the year.
