The layout of the home is a simple rectangular plan with a sloped roof.

The roof overhangs the home to provide shade for those hot Australian days.

As with many Australian homes,  this home is very open to the outdoors.

There are a lot of windows, allowing natural light to flood the interior spaces.

A fireplace has been included to heat the interior when it gets cold.

The windows in the bedroom perfectly frame the bushland, just like a painting.

The shower in the bathroom isn’t surrounded by any walls.

There’s also a skateboard ramp for a bit of fun.
